photo credit: vk red duvivier

before i forget to mention, the men of mercury rev have two new albums out now, one free, the other, well, is not free but definitely worth your hard earned cash. the free one is entitled, strange attractor and can be gotten by merely signing up for the rev mailing list, here. strange attractor serves as a companion piece to the not free one, but much more sublime, snowflake midnight.

dont have anything available off snowflake midnight, but here’s one from strange attractor.

nocturne for norwood

tonite it shows live from melbourne on 9.30.99 – thats weird, 9 years ago today

opus 40/once in a lifetime same show, which can be found in its entirety, here.

it's better to have beer in hand than gas in tank

firstly, since my first plea went unanswered, can someone please try and download something using safari. i believe the problem has been finally fixed, but since i dont have safari at my disposal i have no way of knowing. thanks… so, yesterday we made the mistake of leaving the house and needing gas. it wasnt like we had half a tank, or even a quarter tank. we were on fumes or at least the gas monitor thing in the subaru was telling us. all i am going to say is that if you have more than 3/4 of a tank, you have no business getting fucking gas. some dumb ass broad walks into the station and the guys goes “how much?” she in turn says “i dont know i am only topping it off.” you, fuck face, are part of the problem! and to the hippies in the late 70’s mercedes, if i were a violent or confrontational dude i would have kicked both of your asses for filling up 5 or 6 gas containers. god damn, people! my faith in humanity while always not very sunny, is at its darkest point. anyway, i could seriously ride this re-post thing into the ground – i have almost three years worth of shows and such. of course i wont do that, though. so, until normal posting resumes, tomorrow, here is dylan’s banjo tape/nyc town hall – visit bobs boots for more info. banjo tape: 1. lonesome river edge (trad) 2. back door blues (trad) 3. bob dylan’s dream 4. you can get herfarewell 6. all over you 7. masters of war 8. instrumental (fragment) 9. keep your hands off her (leadbelly) 10. honey babe (trad) 11. goin’ back to rome 12. stealin’ (trad. memphis jug band arrangement) town hall: 13. ramblin’ through the world (adapted from guthrie) 14. bob dylan’s dream 15. tomorrow is s long time 16. bob dylan’s new orleans rag (Trad) 5. 17. masters of war deleted cause it was officially released. thanks andrew! 18. walls of red wing 19. hero blues 20. who killed davey moore? 21. with god on our side

david vandervelde vs daniel martin moore

jason molina much, david?

i freakin love david vandervelde’s waiting for the sunrise and i think a lot of people would too if secretly canadian actually released a single that was a better representation of the record moreso than the first one they released, “i will be fine.” “i will be fine” works beautifully as an opener, but should be taken in the context of the whole record. luckily, sc read my mind and just released “someone like you,” which definitely works much better as a stand alone “single” than “i will be fine” and me thinks is more indicative of the tone of the waiting for the sunshine.

someone like you

i will be fine

i like this kentuckian chap, daniel martin moore. well, i like this song, dont know if i like him, he may be a total fuckin dick. but as far as his music goes, i like what i have heard thus far. thus far being this one track from his subpop debut, stray age. his story goes something like this: he sends subpop demo, they (subpop) decide to open it, they listen to it, they decide to contact him, they find him in costa rica, they sign him. not too shabby, and he’s actually quite a lucky bastard.

stray age comes out on 10.7. pre-order via subpop.
