sturgill simpson “turtles all the way down” – video

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

so, gonna be completely honest, i just started listening to sturgill simpsons’ metamodern sounds in country music, today, but its already one of my favorites of the year. about half way through it, there was a point where i pictured myself in my family’s old dodge van listening to merle haggard. when a record can transport you to another place and time, that truly is an unbelievable feeling. there are records that are growers, then there are those records, like this one, that hit you immediately. its absolutely a country record, but dont let that scare you at all. although, im guessing if you frequent this site, thats not going to be a problem. still this is some fan-fucking-tastic stuff. i know ill be talking more about this throughout the year. so get prepared… my buddy eric over at bucket full of nails has a nice review of the record.

hiss golden messenger “brother, do you know the road”

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

hgm130514w

last year’s mc taylor and hiss golden messenger’s haw was really my find of the year, it was in my top 5 records of the year, and if i had to do it again, i would probably rank it higher. although, at number 3, thats probably a bout right. either way, the record is truly brilliant, i still listen to the hell out of it. well, he’s got a new tune out called “brother, do you know the road,” which was premiered earlier today on uncut. its not technically a new tune as he plays it often, live, but this first time actually being recorded. he’s got a new one coming out in september, i believe, on merge. you can buy it on itunes or listen to it on spotify. he’s touring overseas so make sure you check out his facebook page for dates and whatnot.

EDIT: the embed wasnt working earlier, now it is. yay merge!

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!

top of the evening. well, its been more than a year since we lost mr molina, and it stings as much today as it did back in march of ’13. there’s been a couple of molina cover comp’s that i should probably talk about, but maybe ill get it to another day. in the mean time, here is he at saint-ouen in france on 11.21.07, and its a lovely soundboard. also, here’s two tracks from his last magnolia record josephine, one of my personal favorites.

little sad eyes
josephine

1. leave the city
2. what comes after the blues
3. oh, punishment
4. dont this look like the dark
5. the dark dont hide it
6. down the wrong road both ways (1326)
