pinebocks “lena”

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, May 28th, 2014


according to their twitter bio, pinebocks, are chicago’s worst band, and the best band in the world. no matter how you look/listen to pinebocks, they make some damn fine music. well, they’ve, managed to at least make 2 great songs. i may even be able to do that, so its not really saying all that much, but i trust their talent more than mine. they just release a two song something via their bandcamp page, and i cant recommend it enough. you can pay 500 bucks for the two songs, perks includeded!, or if youre a cheap ass you can download it for free. they’re playing at one of my old favorite haunts, beat kitchen on 6.17. if youre in the area, do check them out.

circulatory system “stars and molecules”

Posted by gregor on Monday, May 26th, 2014


pretty excited about this release, circulatory system’s mosiacs within mosiacs which is due out on 6.24 on cloud recordings. been a huge fan of all three of their previous releases, but even moreso of will cullen hart’s previous band, olivia tremor control. keep in mind thats not taking anything away from what he’s done with circulatory system, but olivia’s black foilage and music from the unrealized film script, dusk at cubist castle are both epic records. if you’ve never heard either, check out “i have floated” down there, and i recommend listening with headphones. anyway, circulatory system is also going to be on tour with neutral milk hotel this summer so make sure you check out the cloud recordings website.

strand of oaks “shut in”

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, May 21st, 2014


“i lose my faith in people, why even take the time? youve got your problems, i’ve got mine.” for the last 4/5 years, i honestly dont even know how many years its been, but timothy showalter has been one of my favorite artists for a good amount of time now. the first time i heard “end in flames” off his strand of oaks debut leave ruin i knew this guy and his music would play a huge part in my life. every record, leave ruin, pope killdragon and dark shores, i believe ended up in my top 5/10 of the year. timothy’s new record heal is due on dead oceans on 6.24. i was hoping to have the record in my mitts, by now, but sadly tis not the case. even after 9 years of music “blogging” i still cant get on some labels distribution lists. oh well, not too bitter. i kid, i kid, kind of. no doubt this will be one of my favorite records of the year.

hiss golden messenger “brother, do you know the road”

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, May 14th, 2014


last year’s mc taylor and hiss golden messenger’s haw was really my find of the year, it was in my top 5 records of the year, and if i had to do it again, i would probably rank it higher. although, at number 3, thats probably a bout right. either way, the record is truly brilliant, i still listen to the hell out of it. well, he’s got a new tune out called “brother, do you know the road,” which was premiered earlier today on uncut. its not technically a new tune as he plays it often, live, but this first time actually being recorded. he’s got a new one coming out in september, i believe, on merge. you can buy it on itunes or listen to it on spotify. he’s touring overseas so make sure you check out his facebook page for dates and whatnot.

EDIT: the embed wasnt working earlier, now it is. yay merge!

      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 […]
