800.588.2300 empire!

Posted by gregor on Sunday, May 20th, 2007

i have to thank one half of the lovely young gals that make up red/blondehead, leah, for bringing birmingham’s through the sparks and their recently released lazarus beach into my realm of consciousness.

lazarus beach is a confusing record and it really only started making sense to me�after about a dozen or so listens. lazarus beach whisks innocently by like a lazy sunday drive in god only knows, georgia. your only company are your thoughts and the songs playing on the lone am station picked up by that shitty kraco radio. its not until you get past these sun-on-your-face-not-a-care-in-the-world-peaceful-easy-southern feelings that lazarus beach begins to reveal its somewhat uneasy underbelly, not unlike the south itself. like behind every smile and open hand or in this case sunny melody there is a real sense of dread but this despondent feeling only rears its head if you let it. to compare lazarus beach, in some regards, to wilco’s summerteeth would not be out of line me thinks.

    Thanks for the pavement gig. There is a lot of echo on someone’s snare. Probably Bobby N. Word from the pavement message board is that brighten and tt will get the redux treatment. Probably fall of 08 and 10.

    Apologies in advance but are these files down at the moment? I’ve grabbed about half of the show and would like to grab the other half if it was at all possible.

    Good quality so far,

    Thanks.
