Man this is just sad.
The Elastica pressing got super messed up. I believe its been pushed back to May.
Does anyone have a link to the Frankie Cosmos album?
I've had an impossible time trying to figure out Pete Seeger -- any thoughts on where to start?
Yeah that was a remarkably stupid comment on my part.
So has it been made explicit that Friday will be a full day now? I haven't been since it was 4 days, but Friday then always seemed to start around 4.
EDIT: It seems to make sense with the amount...
happy birthday! go bruins!
I'll be at Weekend 2!
Gonna try and do both weekends, but July is mandatory.
Mutual Benefit was exceedingly pleasant and pretty tonight. I might've been in the minority on Emily Reo, but I loved her set (and for that matter, Monster Rally's) as well. Crazy to think Mutual...
No idea, perhaps the U.S physical release was 2013?
I suppose not, I haven't been working there super long but I've never seen her (sadly).
I dunno how many of you shop at Origami Vinyl, but here's their year-end list (also lil ol intern me):
1. Goat - World Music
2. Suuns - Images Du Futur
3. Bill Callahan - Dream River ...
Looking forward to seeing them again.
The War On Drugs:
3/18 Philadelphia, PA @ Union Transfer
3/20 New York, NY @ Bowery Ballroom
3/21 Brooklyn, NY @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Overheard a booking agent yesterday at Origami say that Four Tet will be announcing a show in L.A soon
It might be one of the only discographies I know, but I think Wilco fits the bill. A.M/Wilco (The Album) are both excellent-for-what-they-are albums and there's only a couple songs that I'd skip in...
Myles Jack :pulse
Absolutely gleeful over the Kiffin, although it would've been nice if he had stayed and further driven them into the ground.
Some recent purchases and a very special mail order:
Sade - Diamond Life
Prince - 1999
Waxahatchee - American Weekend
Various Artists - Studio Ghibli Kokyo Kyokushu (2xLP)
$30 worth of vinyl for $19 at Amoeba Hollywood. Get on it.
There was some sort of similar deal this time last year I think, so here's hoping...
It bummed me out how empty it seemed in Eagle Rock last night, that's now two times they've had L.A shows on big conflict nights.
All three of the new songs were great, but that last one was especially good. Also gonna echo the love for the inclusion of "To Old Friends and New."
I've got an extra ticket for tonight. $25 obo
I've actually done quite well this year on keeping up. Nothing much is ordered outside the top 4 being my favorites of the bunch.
Waxahatchee - Cerulean Salt
Vampire Weekend - Modern Vampires of...
Totally in the same boat with you Tallguy. Absolutely love the new album and every attempt I've made to go back and listen to Liz Phair has only made me want to listen to Cerulean Blue more.
Got a couple things over the past few weeks.
Vampire Weekend - Modern Vampires of the City (LE)
Rhye - Woman
Cat Stevens - Cat's Cradle
Elton John - Honky Chateau
Can someone group Bibio?
My hard-on would camp out whatever stage he was at.
Just PM me and I'll throw your name in. Then go sit in the corner and think about what you've done.
My pleasure, I figure people here are the most enthusiastic about this stuff, and I've always had positive interactions with people over tickets. Speaking of which, we give away a lot tickets and...
In my continuing attempts to give away tickets, I've got a pair for the SOLD OUT Kurt Vile show @ The Echoplex on Tuesday May 7th. If you'd like them, go to https://www.facebook.com/UCLADadSports and...
Stopped by Amoeba to pick up some RSD stuff and got a few other things as well:
Iron & Wine - Next to Paradise/Dirty Dream
Rhye - Open
Waxahatchee - Cerulean Blue
I'd be glad to take a copy of Rhye - Open if someone got extra.
I only ended up getting the Titus RSD release - couldn't find the Rhye single and I'm flat broke as it is.
God, that'd be brilliant.
Can someone group Iron & Wine?
My preliminary list. How I'm gonna afford half of this I have no idea.
Iron & Wine - Next to Paradise b/w Dirty Ocean (3300 copies)
Black Lips/Icky Blossoms split - Mamas Don't Let Your...
Rewarded myself with some LPs:
Yo La Tengo - I Can Hear the Heart Beating as One
Yo La Tengo - Painful
Breathe Owl Breathe - Magic Central
I bought the LP-60 as an entry level rig a couple years ago and I'm quite happy with it. Like most people will tell you, you can do some searching for an older, better turntable for the same price,...
In my continuing attempts to give away tickets, I've got a pair for Django Django @ The Fonda on Saturday March 23rd. If you'd like them, go to https://www.facebook.com/UCLADadSports and like the...
Alt-J and Youth Lagoon on the same night is slightly annoying.
Happy Birthday fellow UCLARadio DJ!
Picked up at the Dirty Projectors show:
Swing Lo Magellan (Deluxe Edition)
Yeah Dirty Projectors were way on point tonight. So stoked I finally got to see them play Temecula Sunrise.
This went from intriguing to worrying rather quickly.
Dirty Projectors added on the Facebook page.
Yeah Sun Hands is definitely not one of my favorites on record, but live it is by far their best.
$20 well spent:
Husker Du - New Day Rising
Simon & Garfunkel - Parsley Sage Rosemary & Thyme
Neil Young - Harvest
