this is american music and captains dead present two parties at sxsw

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

wowza! i havent seen too many of the other lineups out there, but me thinks, and of course i am biased, you’d be hard pressed to find a better couple shows to check out while y’all are galavanting around sxsw. so with out further adieu here are the lineups to the two shows. also thanks to the sponsors, listed below, who helped make this possible. most of the bands can be found via this american music, if not their respective websites have been linked to. wednesday’s party, btw, has free torchy’s tacos!

the mynabirds tiny desk concert

Posted by gregor on Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

as i was messing around on the youtubes today, came across this, which i sadly missed back when it was recorded almost 2 years ago. either way, its awesome and if you havent picked up the new song “generals” off their forthcoming generals, i cant recommend it enough.

lambchop "gone tomorrow" video

Posted by gregor on Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

as most of you know, or probably actually dont, but mr kurt wagner is one of my musical heros. in my eyes, the guy does no wrong, and his latest lambchop release mr. m is further proof of his brilliance. its definitely top ten material as it stands today. but it directly via merge. (203)

the best of paul stanley: people let me get this off my chest

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012

i posted this about two years ago, and apparently people still love it. so im just going to go ahead and repost it just in case you missed it the first time around. it is truly comedy gold. not sure if y’all heard but musician chris reimer who worked with chad vangaalen in women and a bunch of other canadian acts, passed away today. according to his site, which is now a tribute to him, this was one of his favorite thing, and maybe it could be one of yours too… rip, chris.

strand of oaks "spacestations"

Posted by gregor on Tuesday, February 21st, 2012

Shaking Through: Strand of Oaks from Weathervane Music on Vimeo.

in my opinion, which i am sure isnt worth much, timothy showalter and his strand of oaks is one of the bands that could help transform and shape the musical landscape over the next 5-10 years. i already think he’s in the process, but again thats just me. the guy is a such a huge talent that it pains me that there arent more people listening to him. or maybe there are, and i just dont know about? either way here is recording something new entitled “spacestations” for the site shaking through, which i have never heard of, but seems pretty awesome.
