joanna newsom at the bottletree

Posted by gregor on Monday, November 22nd, 2010

oh happy monday, actually not really. i guess i can look at this way, i only work 3 days this week. not that it means shit, but pfork thought it necessary to give kanye’s new record a 10. i have heard it, listened to it more than 10 times, and there is no way in fucking hell that its worthy of a 10. again, dont mean shit, as pfork stopped being relevant, at least to me, in 2004. still a 10!?!? crazy talk. anyway, i got a re-up request of the this joanna newsom show @ the bottletree in b’ham.

get to know jumpiter

Posted by gregor on Friday, November 19th, 2010

ill always be a sucker for concept albums. i think it all started w queensryche’s operation mindcrime, or actually it was probably styx’s kilroy was here, but i was way too young to understand. so, i’ll just stick with operation mindcrime, which i have been wanting to listen again for a while now, but just cant bring myself to do it. i remember it being so awesome, and i am afraid time has not been kind to it. either way, yeah i dig concept records. they arent done enough, if you ask me. the last one i really remember being released is dbt’s southern rock opera. there are probably a shit-ton released every year, i am just not aware. anyone got any good ones? anyway, i bring up concept records because brooklynite sean schuyler aka jumpiter has just released such a record which is entitled, four stories down – its a murder mystery for the record. i have not heard the entire thing, cause i just got his email recently, but i dig his sound, fuzzy power pop, and you can download the record for free, i believe, via his facebook acct. definitely worth checking out…

    • “new” stuff from thee speaking canaries
      February 21, 2015

      back in 1995, i was way addicted to the damon che’s speaking canaries’ songs for the terrestrially challenged. 21 year old me was blow away by its weirdness. listening to it now, its really not all that strange, its just kind of all over the place – in a good way, but young greg was […]
