marah “a melody of rain”

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, March 26th, 2014


this is going to be short, but sweet. marah are a god damned american treasure, and if you arent familiar with em go listen to lets cut the crap…., kids in philly, 20,000 streets under the sky, if you didnt laugh, you’d cry, and try to prove me otherwise. they did have one misstep, but we wont talk about that right now. all those records are absolutely killer, no filler. they have a new record out called mountain minstrelsy Of pennsylvania and while i havent listened to the whole thing, i can say that from everything i have heard this is definitely going be one of the best records of the year. you can stream the entire thing via american songwriter.

buy a marah record via amazon

old smokey “dead man’s pose” & “leggy”

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, March 26th, 2014


howdy, gang. well so far this old smokey stuff is all kinds of awesome. old smokey is based out of athens and made up of ex-members, or at least have played with, vic chesnutt, the olivia tremor control, circulatory system, madeline, etc… not saying athens has a particular sound, cause they really dont, but they do have a vibe. that vibe, in this case, sounds like this would be a perfect sound track to (insert some activity, movie, etc) here. i havent heard the whole record, sadly, but it sounding like its all over the board musically, which i am completely down with. with that said, i need this whole thing in my life, pronto. oh, btw the name of the record is wester easter and is due out on 4.29 on cloud recordings.

unicycle loves you “face tattoo”

Posted by gregor on Tuesday, March 18th, 2014


i know i had written about unicycle loves you before, although its been a few years i think, and from i remember they were quite poppy. so, it was much to my surprise when i listened to “face tattoo,” off their upcoming record the dead age, which sounds a lot like something i would have heard in the early-mid 90′s there is a little bit on “youre living all over over me” dinosaur jr in some of the guitar work. definitely looking forward to hearing the whole thing.

caleb caudle “stay on”

Posted by gregor on Friday, February 28th, 2014

Caleb Caudle – Stay On from Daniel McCord on Vimeo.

so…. hows everyone? me? oh thanks for asking, im doing just fine. went to see john moreland last night at mud and water here in baton rouge, of course he was amazing. if you havent seen him, what is yr problem? opening up the night was new orleanian caleb caudle, who i was very anxious to see. admittedly, i hadnt checked out any of his stuff before hand, but sources close to me said he was pretty damn great. guess what? yeah, this guy is the real deal. he mostly played stuff off his upcoming record, but it says a lot about the talent of an artist when you actually give a shit about songs you’ve never heard before. great lyrics, great voice, etc, etc… i was more than impressed. cannot wait to hear these songs on record. you can download his 2012 release tobacco town for a name your price deal via his bandcamp page. hes doing some touring with mr moreland so make sure to check out his site for dates.
