two new songs from willy vlautin (richmond fontaine)

Posted by gregor on Thursday, May 19th, 2011

hey howdy hi! those first two tracks or actual videos, are from the forthcoming richmond fontaine record, the high country which is due out shortly, i believe. i def know the first one is cause its called “let me dream of the high country” and the second one entitled, “meet me on the logging road” doesnt sound familiar to me, so i can only assume. much thanks to sandy from slowcoustic for bringing this to my attention. if you click that link up a yonder you can download a free richmond fontaine show via their bandcamp site.

the 4onthefloor at cafe prytania, new orleans, tonight

Posted by gregor on Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

the 4onthefloor are playing here in new orleans this fine evening, and if i was such a wishy washy homebody i would definitely be hitting it up. they’re touring in support of their april 4 release, 4×4. i have not heard the new the record, but from what i can tell they’re right up my alley. also, i have not been to cafe prytania as of yet, but judging by these songs, it should be loud as hell – hope they have a good sound man. both songs are from said upcoming release.

couch by couchwest: the movement

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, March 16th, 2011

so south by southwest has apparently started, or at least thats what the folks on twitter and my calendar is telling me. well, yours truly, and a shit load of other awesome folks are not at sxsw, even though i know i would love to be, but it just wasnt meant to be. anyway, the couch by couchwest movement is for those of us that cant be at sxsw, but the beer is cheaper, the crowds are non-existent and theres never a line for the bathroom. couchwest, can be found here. we’re looking for artists who may or may not be attending the fest to record themselves performing one of their songs, or any song, on their couch. just upload it to youtube, and contact me or submit it over at the cxcw tumblr site. my submission is up there… i dont do a great job at faking it, i know….
