two tracks from gbv's suitcase 3

Posted by gregor on Thursday, October 29th, 2009


so, pollard is releasing another suitcase with this one being number 3. from the looks/sounds/etc of it, this one, a 4 disc set, should definitely be the best of the bunch cause most of the material is being pulled from the mid-90’s to the present. the 4th disc is an impromptu acoustic set featuring pollard, demos and sprout. tell me that aint worth the 28 buck price tag alone. i cant remember how much i paid for the other two, but i think i remember it being much more than 28 bucks. seems like i remember it being more around $40 or $50? i could be totally off though. anyway, its out this tuesday, 11.3, and here’s a couple tracks from it. btw, there’s also a briefcase version, which is the best of the suitcase plus one special track. oh btw, part two, the briefcase is only being printed on red vinyl and limited to 500 copies. why the hell does he do this stuff to me?

pre-order both of them here

home's "photographed with ease"

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, October 28th, 2009


well, this is a bit of a surprise. admittedly, i actually forgot about home’s existence after their 1996 release, elf: gulf bore waltz cause they didnt put a record out for another 9 or so years. during that time, i am pretty sure i sold back the three records i owned by em, and well you know the rest. from what i remember of home’s sound, and this song solidifies that memory, is that they reminded me of a soundtrack to a drugged out local theatre companys version of a space odyssey. make sense? probably not. if you wanna know more about home and their sorted past, check their wiki page. well, they have a new record coming out entitled, seventeen, and is being released by jagjaguwar on 1.26.10. most of their records have been numerically titled, or well roman numerically titled, minus elf and the concept record “about fucking” sexteen. looking forward to this…

the gutter twins live in liverpool, 8.30.08

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, October 28th, 2009

taken from wikimedia, thanks acidkingz

the past 10/12 days have seriously kicked my ass. first, i have been busy as all hell at work. secondly, i got a case of the anxieties attacks which for me last a few days, and luckily dont rear their ugly heads too often but when they do, i dont feel like doin shit. thirdly, the wife has been working for the past ten days, which has left me deal with the kids, alone, from the hours of 3.30 pm to whenever i can get them to bed. i dont want to sound like im complaining bout spending time w/ my kids, but after 10 days w/ no “greg” time it gets to be a bit much or atleast a little taxing on my brain. anyway, i cant bitch too much cause the bride is working and getting paid pretty well, and she’s up for a promotion. so again, no serious complaints. hopefully things will get back to normal next week. anyone going to voodoo fest this weeks end? im trying to score some tickets, but havent heard back on anything as of yet.

los lobos @ the aggie theater, 8.24.99 part one

Posted by gregor on Friday, October 23rd, 2009


i really never tell anyone about this place, cause quite frankly the conversation either turns awkward or goes nowhere. when it does go somewhere, which is very rarely, i end up spouting off some of my favorite bands, and i always include los lobos, cause well they are. the one strange thing about mentioning los lobos is that i still typically get “oh, you mean la bamba.” la bamba was what 20 years ago, and people still see them as the band that plays “la bamba?” at that point, i try to speak intelligently and passionately about their catalogue and their place in music. its funny though, even after going on for 10 minutes or so, i sometimes get the “well the la bamba soundtrack is really good.” if you are still initiated to los lobos’ i cant recommend picking up kiko, the neighborhood, or the town and the city as good starting points. all of which you can buy here

anyway, here’s part one of two of the men of los lobos at the aggie theater in fort collins, co on 8.24.99.

1. intro
2. oh yeah
3. colossal head
4. one time, one night
5. that train dont stop here
6. this time
7. run away with you
8. wicked rain
9. some say some do
10. revolution
11. rattlesnake shake
12. forty thousand headmen
13. angel dance (432)

tw walsh

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, October 21st, 2009


you may not know tw walsh by name, or maybe you do, but you probably, or at least you should, know his work. most of this work is from behind the board, and in this year alone he was worked on what appears to be at least 50 projects – i stopped counting after 20. most notably, david bazan’s curse your branches and the man in me, gasoline heart’s nostalgia aint what it used to be, mike dunn and the kings of new england’s sundowner – more about them coming up, ra ra riot’s can you tell and rocky votolato’s true devotion, just to name a handful. besides his mixing, mastering, producing, etc he was part of the great pedro the lion for more than a few years, and he also released three solo record and had his own band, the soft drugs which he did away with last year. i heard the soft drugs’ in moderation back in late 06/early 07, and definitely dug it, but never bothered to check out any of tw’s other stuff. i hear that his disc blue laws is pretty damn great, but again havent heard it yet, but plan on it. if you’re a fan of david bazan, damien juardo, etc you should dig tw.

btw, he’s on twitter if thats your thing and seems like a perfectly likable dude

here’s a few tracks from mr walsh and you can also download a couple of soft drugs records, for free, via his site

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, October 21st, 2009


my portuguese is for shit, and online translators dont really cut it, but you swing on over to brazilian music outlet, transfusao noise records you can grab a 31 track tribute compilation made up of what i am guessing are brazilian artists. btw, anyone hear the new boston spaceships record?
