adam franklin & the bolts of melody's "yesterday has gone forever"

Posted by gregor on Saturday, July 31st, 2010

me thinks i could make a strong argument that swervedriver were one of most important bands to come out of the 90’s. actually they never made it out of the 90’s cause 99th dream was their last record which was released in 1998. thats all semantics though, cause the point is during their time together they made what i would consider 4 classic records, and yeah im even including the much underrated 99th dream. they often get clumped in with the likes of my bloody valentine and the whole shoegazer crowd, which is really unfair cause swervedriver records were/are actually listenable. sure in mbv’s case loveless is considered by most to be an essential listening experience, and i wouldnt deny that, but god damn if mezcal head or ejector seat reservation dont deserve the same tag. actually, after all of that i would probably be too tired and drunk to argue and just give into pavement being the most important band to come out of said time period.

well…. the man behind all that awesomeness, adam franklin, has a newer record out with his band bolts of melody which is called i could sleep for a thousand years. maybe its just my ears, but its the closest thing post swervedriver that comes as close as replicating aka being as awesome as his swervedriver days.

yesterday has gone forever
last train to satansville off mezcal head

buy i could sleep a thousand years via amazon and while youre there, pick up any swervedriver record.

martha wainwright's "l'accordéoniste"

Posted by gregor on Saturday, July 31st, 2010

was super pscyhed to get an email a week or so back about a new martha wainwright coming out, then only slightly bummed to find that its edith piaf covers record. the record is awkwardly titled sans fusils, ni souliers, a paris. martha wainwright’s piaf record. sure like i said i was a bit bummed it wasnt new material, but from what i have heard its really quite lovely, and her voice really is the star of the show cause i have no idea what she’s singing about. i also believe that it was recorded entirely live. the record is out now in canada, but may be avail on itunes here in the states? oh and there are a couple other tracks from said record streaming on her myspace page.

prince live in nagoya, japan: now with more zip

Posted by gregor on Friday, July 30th, 2010

i am feeling particularly lazy this afternoon, and really not in the mood to link up another 20+ songs. so, in lieu of that, here is a zip file of the entire show. me thinks the second half of said show is much better than the first, but thats just one mans opinion. more to come in a bit….
