This. On so many lists, yet so so boring.
Banks's Goddess was my album of the year, but I don't think I've seen her on a year end list yet. The Pains of Being Pure at Heart's album was really great, too, but has only got a few nods.
My buddy was joking Spoon is overtaking Wilco as lead dad rock band. I don't mind. It was a great crowd.
Spoon was fantastic.
No, sorry. 2% isn't terrible without a promotion. Though I'd hope for 3 or 4% with a glowing review
Talked to my boss and that's the way to look at it. Compensation is about where it should be and I'm happy. It really only could even possibly be a problem years down the road. Off to celebrate with...
Thanks everyone. It's a small company, so no posted pay ranges. From Internet salary research, I'm about where I would expect. So I'm not sweating it too hard. I wouldn't say I'm overpaid, but I...
Billy's right, but he's an arrogant prick for saying so.
So my boss told me my promotion today, I got a 10% raise, but my new title is two above where I was. I'm happy with and expect a 10% raise with a promotion, but with two title increases am I losing...
Why are there both Vance Joy and Foy Vance? One or the other, Music Industry.
Good singles, but the new album isn't going to rocket them to mainstream popularity.
And you only like two out of three headliners in your own wishlist?
I am glad that rock has become more niche oriented. There are so many more bands for me to like. And it is easier to see them close up live.
I won tickets to Sunday on the specblog.com. I'm still trying to decide if it's worth going even for free. Violent Femmes would be cool, but saw them at Coachella. Maybe Kongos and I'm sorta of...
I was just thinking I should put Celebration Rock on.
Slip and Slide - Samuel L Cool J
Jealous (I Ain't With It) - Chromeo
Miserable - Tokyo Police Club
Simple and Sure - The Pains of Being Pure at Heart
Lazaretto - Jack White
And probably Ain't...
Neighborhood Creep, do you like Romantica? They're one of my favorites from your neck of the woods. I think their singer Ben Kyle is doing it solo now.
I really like when he goes Woah! at 1:47 in Red Eyes.
Xscape is actually a lot of fun. A Place With No Name is my fave after one listen.
I don't need a happy song, but I was hoping for something that moves a bit. Give me a 'Get Some' or two, not happy, but up tempo. Lykke Li has such a unique voice, nine moody ballads seems like a...
I'm listening to Sun Kil Moon's Benji on spotify for the second time. I'm not sure I want to add this to my library or really acknowledge it too much. It is just so heartbreakingly beautiful. Or...
It's pretty good, but I can see why it didn't make it onto an album.
Taylor Upsahl (Phoenix, AZ) - 14 year old singer-songwriter with a nice acoustic cover of Alt-J's Breezeblocks:
Listen to her full length on...
And More! better be awesome or I'm staying home.
Full line-up is up now.
Hold Steady tickets purchased!
Well, my curiosity is piqued. With the names mentioned so far, it sounds like a move in the right direction for Phoenix festivals at least.
Come see Vinyl Station with me this Thursday at Crescent.
Vinyl Station (Phoenix, AZ) - Two piece, singer-songwriter/rock band. Phoenicians, go see them them this Thursday at Crescent.
Kelly Hogan. Yeah, she can sing.
I'd love a National headlining set, but going on before the headliner would be more likely. At least they need to move over to the main.
Chvrches was fun last night. Sold out show at the Marquee and the big crowd was into it. The singer's voice sounded good live. She said it was their first time in Arizona, but she knew about it...
I care, thanks for the write-up. I appreciate a take from anyone that was there. Much better than a list.
I hate to damn it with faint praise, but The War on Drugs's album is one of those that is really nice to start out the work day with.
I get what you are saying. It's not Americana like the genre, but Americana like embodying something American. More of a fuller, produced classic rock sound, than the more spare indie rock of their...
I'm digging the new Pains of Being Pure at Heart. It's a lot more fun than their self-titled.
Anyone going to The Naked and Famous tonight?
Thanks. As a Mates of State fan, I'm digging this.
Appreciate the write ups, particularly this one.
I couldn't get it on my TV with my Roku. It might be worth getting chromecast just for festival streams.
Found Arcade Fire's set on YouTube. Great all the way to the end.
The rebroadcast shut down and I was only part way through Arcade Fire. At least I got Power Out > Rebellion (Lies).
Says can't play on this device for me.
On a computer at your desk, always the best way to enjoy live music. But, yeah, I liked their set, too.
This. Plus another week with the set times.
Set times could be the reason. They're only straight up against Future Islands and Dillon Francis.
Grouplove - Girl Talk
OutKast - Jagwar Ma - Haim - Chromeo - The Replacements - ZZ Ward - MS MR
Lorde - Banks
Pixies - Julian Casablancas - Sleigh Bells - The Head And The...
Folders have been around for a while. What I want to know is when they are going to add the rest of Aaliyah's catalog. I've got Age Ain't Nothing But A Number.
This happened at Black Lips, too. He was cool, though, smiling and keeping the barrier in place and helping crowd surfers down.
Always have your significant other pick what you see when you are 50/50 on a conflict or don't have a strong opinion. Better shot of getting your important sets later.
On Friday and Sunday, you have to choose between the #2 and #3 acts. That's rough. Otherwise, they've laid it out pretty well.
