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

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 (1481)

a day in the life of the captains dead inbox

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

so decided to post whatever showed up in my inbox yesterday. i only had one condition, the email had to include a soundcloud link. i probably got a total of 75 emails yesterday and these were the only ones with links to soundcloud or bandcamp – there was one. there were quite a few youtube videos, and just random announcements that mostly bordered on ridiculous. also, i would say a good 95 percent of what i am sent, i would never ever listen to. so people are just throwin shit against a wall in the hopes that a piece finds a crack.
