portishead live in portugal, 8.8.98

so, ive been stockpiling a bunch of awesome shows that i have been downloading. only reason they havent been posted yet is either 1. their tags are all fucked up or 2. i need to convert them from lossless. i know, i know! people have this boner for lossless files, but in all honesty i can barely, barely hear the difference. i listen to my stuff on half way decent equipment. also, i think there was something i read last year or so that pretty much debunked the whole lossless vs lossy formatting.

1. humming
2. numb
3. cowboys
4. mysterons
5. only you
6. half day closing
7. over Continue reading “portishead live in portugal, 8.8.98”

pink floyd bbc archives 70-71

oh happy tuesday. had the pleasure of seeing joe pug last night, tonight i believe he is in birmingham at the bottletree. so if you are in the ham get yer asses out to see him. btw, the opener david rodriguez is freaking amazing. ill be talking about him at a later date. if you like pictures and stuff, i took a few at last nights show, and here they be. i had a couple of repost requests for this, and figured while i was just sitting here, i would fulfill said request. just a forewarning, “echoes” and “atom heart mother” are both almost 50 megs, which if ya dont know, is fairly large for an single song mp3 file.

1. john peel intro
2. embryo

golden smog live at great american music hall, 6.26.96

whats up suckers? not much on my end, just a lazy sunday, which i am absolutely fine with. as some of you may know i dont pay much attention to other music blogs. its not that i dont care what other people are talking about, well i sort of dont, but i just really have zero interest in but its like making pizza’s all day and then spend another few hours watching someone else make pizzas. if that makes any sense? what i am getting at, just learned this week that one of the longest running bloggers, frank over at chromewaves cut the chord back in mid december, then bryan from ninebullets handed over the reigns to good pal of mine and long time contributor romeosidvicious and april from now this sound is brave handed over her site to a young lady named jennifer. all long running blogs, 11 years, 8ish, and 4ish respectively. the whole music blogging landscape has changed, some for the better, but a lot for the worse. i am not going anywhere, cause i would love to hit 12 years. at this point i am at 8.5 years, another 3.5 is probably doable. i hope. anyway, here are the mighty men of golden smog, just like the title suggests.

the whole thing

1. walk where he walked
2. ill fated
3. glad and sorry
4. yesterday cried
5. easy to be hard
6. v

8. love and mercy

explosions in the sky live in nottingham, england, 2.9.04

photo by nick simonite

morning, americans, and the rest of the world, good day. its amazing the pure raw emotion that an explosions song can bring out in me. there probably is no other band on this planet that can elicit such feelings, and they do it with no lyrics, which is even more amazing, at least to me. they conjure up memories, some great, others you may want to have forgotten. emotional rollercoaster….

buy an explosions in the sky record via amazon it will do your soul good…

1. intro
2. first breath after a coma
3. greet death Continue reading “explosions in the sky live in nottingham, england, 2.9.04”

modest mouse live at the crystal ballroom, 9.8.2001


well, here’s to hoping we get a new modest mouse record, soon. admittedly, i absolutely hated we were dead…. well, not hated, but didnt care for it much at all, save a few songs. other than that misstep, i love their entire catalogue, and really ruled and shaped my early 20’s to early 30’s. so for a good decade they were a huge part of my musical makeup. anyway, here is a lovely soundboard from portland’s crystal ballroom. if for whatever reason you never checked em out, i recommend starting with lonesome crowded west and the moon and antarctica… buy em via amazon

1. intro
2. third planet
3. paper thin walls
4. what people are made of
5. a life artic sounds
6. tiny cities made of ashes
7. broke Continue reading “modest mouse live at the crystal ballroom, 9.8.2001”
