I suppose I understand Kasey Chambers waiting to release her excellent Little Bird in the US until she finishes touring in her native Australia. It's about economics. Since it has disappeared from iTunes, I assume she's found a label for 2011 distribution. Somewhat similarly, Mumford & Sons and Laura Marling released an innovative Dharohar Project EP, but only overseas.

One of the better recent releases along these lines comes from Caitlin Rose, who hails from Nashville, but chose to release her Own Side Now in England months before it will see the light of day here in the US. Seems silly in these days of seamless internet to draw lines between one country and another in terms of music release. I'm grateful that I have been able to share cuts from Chambers and Rose, finding them as legal downloads here and there. Still haven't been able to track down a legal cut from Mumford & Marling.
