the jayhawks’ poised for stardom – bootleg

Posted by gregor on Tuesday, January 21st, 2014

jayhawks-american-recordings640x310

sup, folks! you may be nothing like me, but im big on streaming services. sure i still like my cds/records, but most of my waking life i am tied to a pc or my phone, and thus i am always for the ultimate streaming service. i love rdio, but i fear for their future, and thus dont want to invest much more time into them. i like spotify’s deep selection, but their music management is just horrible – not everything is a fucking playlist. i currently use google music, which i have to admit is pretty awesome and have no complaints other than their catalogue isnt as deep as spotify, but you can upload your own music to fill in the gaps. well, today, beats music launched and thus far i am very impressed. i was very skeptical at first, judging by some of the ui screenshots i had seen. either way, this may, hit the sweet spot tween all of above mentioned streaming services. they have a 7 day trial, and if youre interested here is the link. let it be known, i dont by into the whole beats headphones phenomenon cause its purely marketing, but this service is pretty spot on.

anyway, here are the jayhawks playing in new york in 95, tracks 1-7 and in chicago in 93, 8-16. the latter being part of taste of chicago, which i attended. i could be wrong though.

dean wareham “holding pattern”

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, January 15th, 2014

dean

oh happy day, peoples. i love me some dean wareham, whatever he’s doing, and right now this song is completely ruling my world at this moment. if there is a thing as “classic wareham” this be it. the record is entitled holding pattern is his solo debut. this surprises me cause at this point in his career one would think he would have released something solo, but what do i know? the record was produced by jim james and is due out on 3.11.

party dolls “kindly leave”

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, January 8th, 2014

party

well, this is kind of exciting, at least to me, and probably/hopefully a lot of you folks. two of my favorite “newer” bands/artists, the district attorneys and ted stone got together to form party dolls. well, let me clear this up, party dolls are comprised of lead attorney and now lead doll, drew breskin along with frank keith iv and walker beard, tedo stone and jeremy wheatley of crooked fingers. the crew was assembled at last years valentines day show at athen’s caledonia lounge – the other members of the attorneys werent able to make it and thus party dolls was born. its kind of a supergroup, if you will. the record they recorded, which is due out one year to the date they played their first gig, love wars baby via this is american music. thus far i have listened to it a few times, and g’damn if it aint something special. me thinks i need a little more time to let it all sink in, but im damn near positive you’ll be hearing a lot more about love wars baby, from me and hopefully a lot of other folks in the coming days, month, year….

water liars “i want blood”

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, January 8th, 2014

water

man, i am really freakin behind on shit. going to try to make up for my untimeliness; although, we both know that probably wont be happening. either way, water liars have a new record coming out in february and i believe its of the self titled variety. they put out one of my favorite records last year, wyoming, which was on the 21-30 list which was in no particular order. the first 20 were hard enough to order, and just didnt have the strength in me to do another ten. loving this song “i want blood,” and as you can imagine cant wait to hear the entire thing. their doing some touring, coming up, so make sure to check out their site to check to see if they’re coming to your neck of the woods. sadly, no baton rouge show…

crooks on tape “if feelings mean a thing”

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, January 8th, 2014

crooks

ok, im back from the single life that was 10 days away from the wife and kids. i had planned on doing a ton of “blogging” but then grand theft auto 5 happened. in those ten days, i racked up prob 50-60 hours of playing time. was it worth it? debateable… but the game is freakin fantastic. definitely some of the most fun i’ve had playing a game in a long time.

anyway, so… ex-braniac and enon, john schmersal, has a new band out called crooks on tape, which also features ex-enon member rick lee and joy galvan. i was, and still am, a huge fan of braniac’s hissing prigs in static couture which came out in 96, but for whatever reason never listened to any of their other 3 records. then came enon and was a fan of all of their records, high society being my favorite. so it would make sense that i should dig crooks on tape, and while admittedly i havent listened to the entire thing as of yet, i have really dug what ive heard. their misra release, which came out in october is called fingerprint. def check it out if you were a fan of either of those bands, or just like new and good music…..
