Posted by gregor on Saturday, August 24th, 2013

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

Posted by gregor on Friday, June 21st, 2013

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.

Posted by gregor on Sunday, July 15th, 2012

again, one of those been sitting on for a bit now records. i had listened to the first song off portland’s truckstop darlin’s hope and the heart it breaks a couple months back then got sidetracked by im sure one of the kids needing to eat or some bullshit like that – i kid of course. anyway, ive set aside time tonight to listen to a bunch of stuff as the kids are pre-occupied with minecraft and a few other things. so, this will be my first proper listen of said record.

hey baton rouge peoples! my man cory branan is coming to our fair city tomorrow night at the hartley vey theatre in support of his most excellent new record, mutt. i wrote about the record a month or so back, which you can check out here and i said in the “review” that it was a “grower” and i definitely still stand by that. still its definitely one of the best records i have heard this year. i have never seen him live, but i hear he’s one of the best. so dont miss out on this one!

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

Posted by gregor on Tuesday, July 10th, 2012

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”

Posted by gregor on Monday, June 25th, 2012

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.
