Fine Fine Music Announcement

Some exciting news, well, exciting to me at least. Even though I am barely keeping this blog alive, I am also now a contributor to the Fine Fine Music Blog. If you are unfamiliar with Fine Fine, it is a Dutch mp3 blog with a focus on Dutch music, but also posts music from all over as well. I am joining up with Fine Fine in order to bring in some New York flavor. My first post for Fine Fine featured a song from The Antlers' brand new album, Hospice. I'm still trying to get the hang of things over at Fine Fine, but I have a lot of music that I plan to bring there. And btw - unlike this blog, which is on life support, my twitter is rockin and rollin. So if you like what I do here, maybe you would like what I do there too. Also, I am still updating my Upcoming page regularly.

Hungry Villagers

These brothers from Houston know how to write good indiefolk. I wonder if they have been to NYC yet of if they have plans to come here anytime soon. Maybe some of you SXers will be able to catch them there, if they go.

Naked Hearts Record Release Show - Jan 22

KEXP Presents - Bell House - Jan 17


It's been a (what seems like, but actually probably hasn't been) very very very long time since I have posted about Aeroplane Pageant, because they have been in hiding for (what seems like, but actually probably hasn't been) a very very very long time. But they have finally shared some information with us. A new album is coming (not so) soon, Winter 2009. See title above. There is also a picture of a tiger with human feet @ their website, but you are going to have to go see it for yourself, because no save as. Instead, I'll post the last flyer I have for them as a reminder (that I'm sure they don't need) of how long it's been since they've played live.

ps ^this show^ kicked major ass.

Pet Shelter Benefit Show

"a benefit show for the ACC to help reduce the rate of homeless dogs and cats being put to sleep every day"

Get used to seeing a lot of pow wow! posts...

...because I like their music and their flyers are dope.


Posting about Futurity once again as a reminder that the debut shows are THIS WEEKEND. Don't sleep on this. The short preview I witnessed at The Music Slut holiday show was terrific. I just bought my tix for Saturday. Was a tough debate. Do you go to the first Futurity show ever? Or do you let them work out the last few kinks on Friday and go to the weekend show instead. I went with the latter.

Here We Go Magic

Jumping on the bandwagon. Go directly to the Myspace and listen.

Merriweather Post Pavilion = Best Album of 2009(?)

On Twitter earlier today, slightly edited:

Just pressed play on first listen of Merriweather about 4 hours ago

Two songs in and this already sounds way more like Person Pitch than any of the AC albums. about 3 hours ago

Glad I have not read any reviews yet, just rumblings about it being album of 09. about 3 hours ago

I can already tell that this album is going to be hard to top, kind of how I felt upon first listen of last LCD. about 3 hours ago

This is obviously the most accessible album AC have made to date. about 3 hours ago

Summertime Clothes! I remember this song from APW. Best song so far. Have they picked a single yet? about 3 hours ago

It's weird listening to an AC album with such audible lyrics and structure (sort of). about 3 hours ago

These songs would be great for movie soundtracks. Especially a Richard Kelly flick. about 3 hours ago

Bluish is outstanding, but it's hard to pick early favorites, because every song is better than the last. about 3 hours ago

No More Runnin' is the most older AC sounding song so far. about 3 hours ago

As accessible as this album is, it still feels nowhere near mainstream. People that hate AC will probably still hate this album. about 3 hours ago

Boppin around to Brothersport. Most fun song on album. about 3 hours ago

Done. wow. Best album I've heard in a while. Going straight into second listen. about 3 hours ago

Well just like with LCD in 07, the bar has been set very high. And also like 07, will Radiohead top this? about 3 hours ago

I've since listened to the album another 3 times.
