seventeen years with bill janovitz, its been a pleasure

Posted by gregor on Sunday, July 12th, 2009


back in 1992, i believe it was, i read an interview with j mascis and in said interview j happened to mention bill janovitz and buffalo tom. believe he talked about producing their first two records, and maybe even saying something along the lines of having too much influence and weighing too heavy of a hand on their first record. i would absolutely agree with that sentiment, even if j actually never said that, and i am totally making it up. honestly, their self titled debut is pretty bad cause its a sound of a band being exactly what they are not. their follow up, birdbrain, with j still at the helm, sounds like a totally different band, and we’re all the better for it. in terms of consistency, i dont think there are any artists that are up to their level. one could argue that they stick to a formula, albeit an awesome one, and that they dont really “challenge” their audience/fans. to that i would say fuck “challenging.” great comeback, huh? in all seriousness, though, janovitz and buffalo tom have created a body of work that really any fan of no bullshit, what-you-see-is-what-you-get rock and roll would definitely find very much to their liking. like michael bolton, i celebrate their entire catalogue. if you do take my advice, i would start with let me come over or big red letter day and then maybe smitten or sleepy eyed. i would definitely start with let me come over, now that i think of it. his non buffalo tom is stuff is great as well, particularly his crown victoria record, fireworks on tv.

here’s what i think is the quintessential buffalo tom song

dan auerbach's heartbroken in disrepair video

Posted by gregor on Friday, May 29th, 2009

i have always kinda liked the black keys, but never really “got em.” whats there to “get” you ask? shit i dont know? the point i am getting at is that auerbach’s recently released keep it hid, i get, or something that resembles “getting.” in fact its pretty damn awesome, and that up there is the video for one of my favorite songs of the year “heartbroken in disrepair.”

sharon van etten's for you

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, May 27th, 2009


for some reason or another, i have never really talked about sharon van etten. i think i may have posted one song before, i cant remember. figured now we would be an appropriate time, seeing as she has a new record out called because i was in love, which was released last week via language of stone. i have only listened to it once, and that was over at mbv where they are streaming it in it’s entirety. initial reaction is that its lovely, quite lovely. musically, van etten doesnt tread any new ground outside of your typical singer/songwriter/folky fare, but when you have a voice as gorgeous as hers, she could sing me the diary of anne frank and i would get mildly aroused.

for you

wicked celtics' i dont wanna hear your band

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, May 13th, 2009

this dude is all kinds of awesome. where did wicked celtics find me? of course, myspace. wicked hypocrite, maybe more appropriate? i kid, kind of. he claims to be a centro-matic fan, but he may have just been trying to butter me up. regardless, this is quite comical and apropos.

come hell or high water video

Posted by gregor on Monday, April 20th, 2009

close to the top of my list of my favorite records of 09 is whitmore’s animals in the dark and here is the first, and probably last, video from said record. this is, in my opinion, his first truly solid record from beginning to end. if you like free stuff, anti has a sampler download via amazon which includes mould, jason lytle, nasa, booker t and whitmore’s “there’s hope for you,” amongst others.
