drive by truckers live on KEXP

Posted by gregor on Sunday, April 16th, 2006

the drive by trucker’s new record a blessing and a curse is set to be released on tuesday, and i am sure its going to end up on a lot of people’s end of the year top 10 lists, including mine.? hopefully with the release of blessing, jason and patterson’s solo records will be quick to follow.? now, only if cooley would put something out, that would be hotter, or atleast less disappointing, then me, jessica and scarlett in a three way.
here is a recent performance from SXSW at the KEXP mobile studio.

the black angels

Posted by gregor on Saturday, April 15th, 2006


if you are a fan of black moutain and their various incarnations, then you will absolutely love the black angels. a buddy of mine, jeremy from austin, pointed these guys out. i dont know much about them but am highly anticipating their new record, passover.
sniper at the gates of heaven

someone was nice enough to hook me up with a copy, and i must say this record is hot as hell. i can see this gonig in my top 10 of the year!! there is almost a danzig/doors feel to some of the songs, if that floats your boat.

the slingerland ride

Posted by gregor on Saturday, April 15th, 2006


if you live the chicago area, be on the lookout for the slingerland ride cause they are going to start blowing shit up. fronted by michael dean, who has a penchant for writing tales that would tom waits stand up and take notice, they are wiping the sleep out of their eyes from that long chicago winter slumber and are prepared to bring their shit to the masses this spring/summer. fans of waits, firewater, nick cave, et al take notice.

this is how the story goes

leave it all behind

thank god for mental illness

Posted by gregor on Saturday, April 15th, 2006

if i could pick one record to have been a fly on the wall during the recording process, brian jonestown massacre’s thank god for mental illness would be that record. from beginning to end it feels and sounds like one fucked up trip.? just take a look at the cover, and thats what you can expect. its a mess of a record, but that mess also makes a wonderful listen. the main man, anton newcombe could be a musical genius or maybe just a mad man. after being a fan for many years, i still have not made up my mind. needless to say, the man has a vision and thats to keep music evil and he does so with the greatest of ease. all of the massacre’s releases are available for download on their website, but today i offer up his/their greatest work.

band of horses on kexp

Posted by gregor on Friday, April 14th, 2006

thanks to the fine folks at so much silence for offering these up. i am assuming these are the same that are being offered up on dime a dozen. if anyone could hook a brother up with an account it would be much appreciated. i had one but i didnt use it regularly enough so they booted my ass. anyway, without much further adieu.

russian circles

Posted by gregor on Friday, April 14th, 2006

chicago’s, russian circles, new record Enter is set to be released on May 16. russian circles are what we have come to expect outta chicago based insturmental bands, or maybe insturmental bands entirely. musically these guys are tight as hell, and if they stick it out long enough i can definitely see these guys becoming major players, along the lines of explosions in the sky.

death rides a horse

in other news:

chan is not having my baby after all.

check out the ladies at red/blondehead they do a fantastic job and are in need of some love, plus they are hot.

thanks to lhb for pointing out that subpop is streaming band of horses video for funeral.? in my humble opinion the best song and album of the year thus far. (156)

help save music in our schools

Posted by gregor on Thursday, April 13th, 2006

on april 18th the Fulton County school board, here in Georgia, will vote on whether or not to do away with music programs in 52 of their schools. i wish i knew what they were planning on putting in place of this vital piece to child growth. fo those that werent very athletic, not yours truly mind you, band and orchestra was a safe have for those to seek refuge and find a common bond with other kids. i was in band, but unfortunately my band teachers breath stank so bad i just had to quit. there is still no question that participating in band helped shaped the person i would grow up to be.

so, if you give a shit at all please send a letter to the school district heads by clicking here. thanks to tessa at drive a faster car for pointing it out.

thanks
