portishead live in portugal, 8.8.98

Posted by gregor on Tuesday, February 11th, 2014

so, ive been stockpiling a bunch of awesome shows that i have been downloading. only reason they havent been posted yet is either 1. their tags are all fucked up or 2. i need to convert them from lossless. i know, i know! people have this boner for lossless files, but in all honesty i can barely, barely hear the difference. i listen to my stuff on half way decent equipment. also, i think there was something i read last year or so that pretty much debunked the whole lossless vs lossy formatting.

1. humming
2. numb
3. cowboys
4. mysterons
5. only you
6. half day closing
7. over (221)

stream rew’s departeures

Posted by gregor on Tuesday, February 11th, 2014

rew is ryan from milwaukee’s eric & magill – was a big fan of their 2010 release all those i know. now, i can of feel like a dumbass cause i didnt realize that said band had released a record last year entitled night singers. i seriously need an intern. either way, ryan, from what the short description would lead me to believe, recorded this during his travels through africa and se asia. i have only made it through about 1/3 of it, but its quite lovely and relaxing, but not in a this is a fucking bore kind of way. he’s got it set up as a “name your price” type of deal. so i guess you can get it for free… definitely worth checking out.

dinosaur jr “jayloumurph”

Posted by gregor on Sunday, February 9th, 2014

sup, jerkballs!?!? if you come here with any regularity, you may have noticed the site got hacked. actually the second time in 2/3 weeks. so, i was down for about 4/5 days because of it. no idea who’s doing it, or how, but trust you me, i will find them, and kill them like the fuckers they are. ok, maybe not kill em, but give them a stern lecture about how that aint cool. just want to publicly thank mark aka romeosidvicious of 9bullets for getting it all squared away. had a request for a repost for this dinosaur jr bootleg, so here it is….

1. in a jar
2. doubt

pink floyd bbc archives 70-71

Posted by gregor on Tuesday, February 4th, 2014

oh happy tuesday. had the pleasure of seeing joe pug last night, tonight i believe he is in birmingham at the bottletree. so if you are in the ham get yer asses out to see him. btw, the opener david rodriguez is freaking amazing. ill be talking about him at a later date. if you like pictures and stuff, i took a few at last nights show, and here they be. i had a couple of repost requests for this, and figured while i was just sitting here, i would fulfill said request. just a forewarning, “echoes” and “atom heart mother” are both almost 50 megs, which if ya dont know, is fairly large for an single song mp3 file.

1. john peel intro
2. embryo
3. fat old sun
4. green is the colour
5. careful with that axe, eugene (278)

justin rutledge “courage (hugh maclennan)” – tragically hip cover

Posted by gregor on Thursday, January 30th, 2014

Daredevil Digi 9

i dont know who justin rutledge is, other than good friend matt saying “he rules” or something along those lines. well, mr rutledge is putting out a record, his 6th, made up entirely of tragically hip covers. the record is entitled daredevil, btw. keep in mind the hip are one of my most cherished bands, and if someone is putting out a complete record of covers of said band, my eyebrow(s) are gonna raise. in my tiny brain, i think how dare someone cover the hip, but on the flipside it excites me. after reading this article, i have zero doubts that justin’s heart is in the right place, but admittedly i am a bit scared. in my case, i have come to love these songs, and have been listening to them for years and years, and then you hear another take, its kind of a bit of a shock. i think anyone who has a favorite artist, and finds covers of their favorite songs would probably feel the same way? i really look forward to hearing this whole thing. daredevil is out on 4.22.

edit: as i was typing in the “tags” justins name came up, which means i must have written about him before and well what the fuck? i did back in 2008… it really wasnt a write up but just a mention. i cant be expected to remember 5 years ago….

golden smog live at great american music hall, 6.26.96

Posted by gregor on Sunday, January 26th, 2014

whats up suckers? not much on my end, just a lazy sunday, which i am absolutely fine with. as some of you may know i dont pay much attention to other music blogs. its not that i dont care what other people are talking about, well i sort of dont, but i just really have zero interest in but its like making pizza’s all day and then spend another few hours watching someone else make pizzas. if that makes any sense? what i am getting at, just learned this week that one of the longest running bloggers, frank over at chromewaves cut the chord back in mid december, then bryan from ninebullets handed over the reigns to good pal of mine and long time contributor romeosidvicious and april from now this sound is brave handed over her site to a young lady named jennifer. all long running blogs, 11 years, 8ish, and 4ish respectively. the whole music blogging landscape has changed, some for the better, but a lot for the worse. i am not going anywhere, cause i would love to hit 12 years. at this point i am at 8.5 years, another 3.5 is probably doable. i hope. anyway, here are the mighty men of golden smog, just like the title suggests.

the whole thing

1. walk where he walked
2. ill fated
3. glad and sorry
4. yesterday cried
5. easy to be hard
6. v
7. revolution blues
8. love and mercy
9. wont be coming home
10. pecan pie
11. he’s a dick (83)

superdrag live at the casbah, 7.7.2000

Posted by gregor on Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

superdragre535c

in the realm of the pop and power and punky genre, me thinks it dont get much higher than the men from knoxville, tn, superdrag. i celebrate their entire catalogue with much frequency, although i find myself just listening to last call for vitriol for whatever reason, but everyone i run into, who are superdrag fans, prefer their 1996 release, regretfully yours. for the record, the casbah is in johnson city, tn.

amazon has some good deals on their records, or if youre using the spotify, theres a couple records on there that are definitely worth your time.

1. intro > keep it close to me
2. gimme animosity
3. carried
4. hellbent (59)
