St. Even's debut album Spirit Animal does not contain a song called "Spirit Animal." But in a "Houses of the Holy"-type move (give yourself a quarter of a brownie point if you understand that reference), St. Even has released a song called "Spirit Animal"—just not on the record that bears that name.

Steven Hefter, who goes under the performing name St. Even—I guess he must be really, really, really Catholic—released the song on the recent Greenwood compilation EP, which also includes local musicians Jarad Miles, Barry Brusseau, and others. The free EP (which you can download here) was put together by Materials to Outlet studio, the studio run by local producer Jake Kelly. Of this song, Hefter says, "It’s in step with the Portland vibe and it's also just a nice showcase of Jake Kelly’s underappreciated studio and its unique sound."

Another St. Even track, "Blinding Love"—which IS on the Spirit Animal LP—has also just been released as a single. Oh fine, you can hear that one, too.
