oh, well hot damn! a new patterson hood record is on the horizon and its called heat lightning rumbles in the distance and is being released via ato records on 9.11. of course hvaent heard the whole thing yet, but i am in love with this song. patterson and kelly sound great together, and begs the question why havent they hooked up sooner? or have they, and i just missed it? either way you can download it down there, or just stream it.

hey baton rouge peoples! my man cory branan is coming to our fair city tomorrow night at the hartley vey theatre in support of his most excellent new record, mutt. i wrote about the record a month or so back, which you can check out here and i said in the “review” that it was a “grower” and i definitely still stand by that. still its definitely one of the best records i have heard this year. i have never seen him live, but i hear he’s one of the best. so dont miss out on this one!

Posted by gregor on Thursday, July 12th, 2012

top of the day! honestly, i dont know much about the posies, as i have never really listened to em. sure, i know quite a bit about em, but that never led me to check em out. i had a buddy on twitter request some posies stuff so i figured i would comply. for those posies fans out there. where should i start?

1. definite door
2. when mute tongues can speak
3. i am the cosmos
4. love letter boxes
5. flavor or the the month
6. earlier than expected

hallelujah the hills “get me in a room” big digits mix

Posted by gregor on Tuesday, July 10th, 2012

y’all probably know how i feel about remixes, and if you dont, ill lay it out simply, i usually hate em. the only remixes i like are public enemy remixes from the late 80’s – early 90’s. granted there are a few i like, but the majority, not so much. so, when i heard about a remix of probably my favorite song of the year “get me in room,” off my favorite record of the year no one knows what happens next, i had to check it out. its cool, i could do without the rapping, cause i dont think it necessarily fits, but i dig the beats.
