25 August 2009


Technically, my job wasn't blow'd up, but I liked the image. The good news is I had a really good interview a few days ago, so hopefully the unemployment thing won't last much longer.

In the meantime, I had a couple of requests I was asked to put up, along with a few cuts from upcoming albums.

By request:

Toad the Wet Sprocket - "All In All" B-side of "Walk On the Ocean".
Gnarls Barkley - "Crazy" (live at The Grammys) not the best sound quality, but it's a great performance. Original version is on St. Elsewhere. (buy)

Some upcoming album samples. These are at a lower bit rate since they're not rare. Gotta give the artist a chance to sell the good stuff.

(files expired)

porterdavis - "Grass Growing through Concrete" from porterdavis, out September 1st. This particular song reminds me of early Counting Crows. Good stuff.
Brian Setzer Orchestra - "Trouble Train" from Songs from Lonely Avenue, out September 29. (buy) Several tracks can already be had from iTunes, if you just can't wait.
The Swell Season - "Low Rising" from Strict Joy, out September 29, or October 27, depending on who you ask. (buy)
Super 400 - "Flashlight" from Sweet Fist, out September 15. (buy)

New albums out today that you may be interested in:

Arctic Monkeys - Humbug (buy) I like this album. It's still not as fun as their first album, but then what could be.
Willie Nelson - American Classic (buy) An album of standards from a living legend.
Matisyahu - Light (buy) I'm not a particularly religious person, but I like this guy.
16 Horsepower - Secret South (Re-issue) (buy) A fantastic album that's been out of print for some time.
There are also several re-issues from Radiohead (deluxe editions) Wilco (on vinyl) and The Smiths (on vinyl) coming out today.
