joe pug “if i still cant be found” – new song


man, i cannot wait for this, this being joe pug’s new record windfall which is due out on march 10. im as excited about this as i am about the new american aquarium… the great despiser, his last record, was one of my favorite records from 2012? actually i think burn.flicker.die just beat out the great despiser that year. i cannot recommend his entire catalogue enough…

still one of my favorite videos on the youtubes!

strand of oaks “satellite moon” – video

happy saturday, i guess? this is off of one of my favorite records of 2012, strand of oaks’ dark shores. sadly, i dont remember where it came in cause i lost about 8 months worth posts due to my former host bailing on me. either way, its a brilliant record. this particular version comes from strand of oaks’ darker shores which is different takes on some of the songs off dark shores.

jeff zentner “fire in my bones” video premiere

Jeff Zentner–Fire in My Bones (Official video) from Jeff Zentner on Vimeo.

top of the day! i am super psyched to bring y’all the world premiere of jeff zenter video for his song “fire in my bones,” off one of my favorite records of 2012, a season lost – which, obviously, i cant recommend enough. jeff’s music is much like walking/running through a southern gothic dreamscape that has no end, no beginning. i think this video perfectly depicts visually, what jeff creates sonically. a huge credit is due to the director ashlee elfman and julie pepin and sean leslie, the cinematographers.

hallelujah the hills “get me in a room” big digits mix

y’all probably know how i feel about remixes, and if you dont, ill lay it out simply, i usually hate em. the only remixes i like are public enemy remixes from the late 80’s – early 90’s. granted there are a few i like, but the majority, not so much. so, when i heard about a remix of probably my favorite song of the year “get me in room,” off my favorite record of the year no one knows what happens next, i had to check it out. its cool, i could do without the rapping, cause i dont think it necessarily fits, but i dig the beats.

martin rivas “meet your father”

i have known mr martin rivas for a lot of years, or at least it seems like it. we met via the wilco message board via chicago back when i visited on an almost unhealthy basis – which was about 7 years ago at this point. either way, i knew mart was a musician but never really bothered to check out his work. silly me, or more like lazy me.
