Go Out Like a Whisper: WED. 02. 11. 09.

This past Friday, Marrissa Nadler and Brie Sullivan played at UCONN sans Luke Temple. Despite a few mishaps,

"WHUS was not slacking in the slightest in their quest to bring music to the fairy people...Sullivan's honey-covered, full-throated voice drifted out on songs as melancholy as the blues enveloping the stage......(and) Nadler...listed songstresses Joni Mitchell and Kate Bush among her greatest influences. Bush's influence was especially apparent in her voice, which stroked the roof beams of the Student Union ballroom like the cries of an ersatz Appalachian Tree Nymph with heartwood sap running down her dress....Although the evening was cut short by Temple's car troubles, the audience seemed satisfied by their visit to the fatal flower garden"- The Daily Campus

Above is the wonderful Brie Sullivan with a few finger puppets....

BEST OF 2008 w/ Llama Tsunami & The Without Helmet: Wednesday. Jan. 7. 2009

Llama Tsunami & The Without Helmet, joined me in counting down the top songs released in 2008. I can't think of a better way! Ooodles and doodles of thanks dudes (and dudette, for the lovely Maria)! Hrrrmmmph! Some many good albums this year, but so little time. Shame. I couldn't pick just one (26 was hard) so an order wouldn't do justice. Honorable mentions you won't find on tonight's playlist include: Vampire Weekend, No Age, Beck, Mogwai, The Kooks, & Hot Chip. Also 2008 was a good year for re-releases. As for 2009, I am predicting Dan Deacon and Peter, Bjorn, & John will be on this list this time next year....time will tell. Look for Llama Tsunami & The Without Helmet's selftitled EP featuring the tracks heard live tonight, Swing & Emo Kid being released in early 2009.

The Ecstacy of Screamadelica: Wednesday Dec. 17. 2008

i saw ted leo at a benefit concert the night before so of course i slipped him in somewhere. the fact that ted leo only did the concert for the price of gas, really warms my heart. i've always respected him as an artist and now i get to as a person too. there aren't enough ted leos in the world. in fact he told me, "falafuls are like the misfits. some times they are good. but when they are bad. they are bad." i think its love.
