what im listening to right now: possessed by paul james’ there will be nights when im lonely

Posted by gregor on Friday, March 7th, 2014

possessed

i know im way late on this guy, and this guy being konrad wert aka possessed by paul james. had heard his name being tossed around last year, and much like a lot of shit in my life, it goes one ear and out the other. so, im just sitting here, beer in hand after what seemingly was the longest work week of my life, browsing spotify. not even sure how i happened upon him, but fuck me if i aint glad that i did. if i would have heard this last year, it most definitely would have been in my top ten. still cant go back in time, and im just enjoying it in the present, and damn this is scratching me everywhere i itch. if you like dobros, foot stomps, mandolins, acoustic geetars, violins, etc combined with brilliant lyrics and a voice that pours out emotions that cant be faked, saddle up to this record. you will not be disappointed. oh, and he’s a one man band, and from what i hear a teacher as his fulltime gig.

pony boy “the devil in me” – video

Posted by gregor on Thursday, March 6th, 2014

gonna come right out and say it, i have a huge schoolboy crush on marchelle bradanini aka pony boy. dont judge me! i am only but a man. in all seriousness though, although i am serious about the other thing, she’s just about as good as it gets to my ears/eyes – the former being the most important of course. she’s got an incredibly gorgeous yet dangerous/sexy voice and writes great lyrics. put those both together, and there is no reason she isn’t ruling the world. its low-down dirty shame! she just released a new ep, the devil in me, yesterday, and while i have not heard it, everything she has put out i have loved. so im guessing that aint going to change now. she’s doing some sxsw shows so make sure you check her out if you happen to be in town.

caleb caudle “stay on”

Posted by gregor on Friday, February 28th, 2014

Caleb Caudle – Stay On from Daniel McCord on Vimeo.

so…. hows everyone? me? oh thanks for asking, im doing just fine. went to see john moreland last night at mud and water here in baton rouge, of course he was amazing. if you havent seen him, what is yr problem? opening up the night was new orleanian caleb caudle, who i was very anxious to see. admittedly, i hadnt checked out any of his stuff before hand, but sources close to me said he was pretty damn great. guess what? yeah, this guy is the real deal. he mostly played stuff off his upcoming record, but it says a lot about the talent of an artist when you actually give a shit about songs you’ve never heard before. great lyrics, great voice, etc, etc… i was more than impressed. cannot wait to hear these songs on record. you can download his 2012 release tobacco town for a name your price deal via his bandcamp page. hes doing some touring with mr moreland so make sure to check out his site for dates.

marissa nadler “was it a dream”

Posted by gregor on Thursday, February 27th, 2014

nadler

been tons of talk on the interwebs regarding marissa nadler’s latest release, july, and for good reason. the good reason being is its fucking awesome. its hauntingly gorgeous and actually quite sexy, if i may be so bold. there are a ton of reviews out there pretty much stating the same thing except with way more words and more intelligently. here are some, if you dont believe me – consequence of sound, american songwriter and we listen for you. definitely one of the best records i have heard this year.. buy it via amazon

lambchop live at great american music hall, 1.16.99

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, February 26th, 2014

top of the day, mothertruckers…. if there was one guy i would love to have a beer and a smoke with its kurt wagner. sure there are a bunch of other dudes/ladies i would love to do the same with, but mr wagner seems like pure salt of the earth type of folk. i may be totally off, and he may be a dick, although i know he isnt, but still… i guess the same could be said about me, and i am a nobody.

1. interrupted
2. the saturday option
3. what else could it be?
4. up with people
5. n.o.
6. the distance from her to there (96)
