marah “a melody of rain”

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, March 26th, 2014

marah

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.

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

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, March 26th, 2014

artworks-000073155794-m05963-t500x500

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.

unicycle loves you “face tattoo”

Posted by gregor on Tuesday, March 18th, 2014

unicycle

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.

Posted by gregor on Monday, March 17th, 2014

well, couch by couchwest 2014 is over. it was tons o’ fun, but also just like every year, frustrating as hell. hopefully, y’all had a chance to check out some of the submissions. if not, here are just a few of my favorites of the 350+ that were posted. i could have probably added about 20 more, but alas, i am a lazy fuck.

american aquarium “wolves” – a cxcw exclusive which was pretty awesome

rosanne cash and the thread “a feather’s not a bird” – yeah this was pretty awesome to get

cory call of arliss nancy and a brand new song called “andy dufresne” yes named after the shawshank character

kent goolsby “brilliant disguise” – springsteen cover

hallelujah the hills “you got fooled” an outtake from their upcoming record
