chris hadfield “space oddity” via the international space station

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

i had heard about this, but like everything in my life, i put it off. well, apparently retired canadian astronaut, chris hadfield, only had permission from the bowie camp to use the video for one year. he and his son worked on this, btw. sadly, that one year was up, i believe, yesterday. of course people started re-uploading the video, and well here we are. if you havent seen it, i cant recommend it enough. surprisingly has a good voice, and of course the stache!

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.

minos the saint “let me sleep” – video

Posted by gregor on Saturday, March 22nd, 2014

i have a few friends here and in new orleans that have raved about minos the saint, yet sadly even though they have played less than a mile away from my house, i have yet to see them live. not sure if from baton rouge, or new orleans, but it really doesnt matter, they are from louisiana. this particular performance was filmed in baton rouge, and we were hoping to get them for couch by couchwest but just didnt happen. if they would have submitted this, they would have won the entire festival. they have a record avail on bandcamp that i/we/you should probably check out.
