american aquarium "louisiana beauty queen" off live in raleigh

Posted by gregor on Monday, February 20th, 2012

admittedly, i was late the american aquarium party. ive said it before, and ill say it again, how the hell did this band put out 5 records before i finally heard of them and their record small town hymns – which ended up at #3 on my best of 2010 list. boggles the old noggin. i cant believe no one ever said “hey greg there’s this band you should check out cause they pretty much encompass everything you love about music, theyre called american aquarium.” nope never happened. another thing that annoys me is they tour relentlessly, i wont make up a number, but i know they are on the road more than 3/4 of any given year. i may be wrong with that, but not that far off, im sure.

so, 2010 i jumped on the bandwagon, and you know what? theyve passed through my respective areas a few times and you know how many times ive seen em? zero! fuckin zero! well, luckily for me, and for those that have never seen em they have all done us a favor and released live in raleigh which was recorded in of all places raleigh, nc. after listening to this for the past week or so, i have been so missing out. its a great collection of some of my favorite aquarium songs, band sounds tight as hell and bj barham is the consummate front man. it is my life’s mission from here on out to see american aquarium live, somewhere, somehow. if it takes me having to pay em to play my backyard goddamn im gonna do it. in the meantime, live in raleigh and their back catalogue will just have to tide me over.

live in raleigh can be picked up via their site and im assuming any upcoming shows.

      sometimes its hard to put into words what an artists body of work means to you. most of the times you read reviews and its purely methodical. there’s no heart, no past history, just what they’re hearing now. sometimes music is a puzzle, and it doesnt make sense, until you put it all together. thats […]
