The latest OpenAir Download of the Week is The Dream is in the Ditch from Deer Ticks’ 5th full length release, Negativity.

After a year of personal tragedies, including the prison conviction of his father and the dissolution of his wedding engagement, lead singer John McCauley directed his emotions into song writing.  The resulting record is markedly more mature and cathartic than previous releases, rounding out the scope of what this band is capable of.

Deer Tick are coming to town playing the Bluebird Theater on October 30th so keep your radio in the openair for your chance to win tickets to the show.
