Monday didn't go as well as the previous week, i was tired and the studio failed me for the first 10 minutes (i probably should just take the blame rather than find things to blame)
showlist - here goes (click on the title and it goes to spotify (if the songs there) if not then yadddayadda)
Monsters of Folk - Baby Boomer - or http://monstersoffolk.com/ - i've gone on about this band for weeks, always been in love with connor oberst and his music, music which i've (personally) seen a lot with. dont forget about m. ward and zooey - she & him ! mike mogis (bright eyes) and jim james, who is also a delight, goes by yim yames? - he did a cover of george harrisons, my sweet lord which is beautiful (linked to spotify)
Yeasayar - Ambling Alp - this band first stormed my ears with 2080 and Sunrise a year or so back. the new album is out now? the video is worth watching its so weird in such a good way.
Laura Marling - Goodbye England (covered in snow) - i probably shoud've played this before christmas or at least when we had snow, ah. her new album is out the earlier part of this year so you mayaswell watch out for it - if its anything like her last it'll be beautiful.
Brand New – Noro - saw Brand New at wembely over the weekend, yeahhhhhh
Gorillaz - Stylo (feat. mos def and bobby womack) - the cartoon clan are back, new album 'plastic beach' is out soooooon
Rebelution – Feeling Alright - (for ben chandler !)
Washington - One Man band - a female vocalist from australia, shes been around for ages but i've only just come across her, clemantine is her last ep came out over a year ago.
Nick Drake - Black eyed dog - Nick Drake, i first heard of him when talking to my grandma - she used to date him back in the 40-50's - so cool. then i started listening to his music and i found it quite moving. i then found out that Heath ledger was obsessed with him and he actually died in the same way as nick drake, overdoes of anti-depressents. i've embedded the video that Ledger made before he died, which i find weirdly haunting.
FREE LOVEEEEEE - www.johncandyisnotdead.com - john candy, played them last week - heres his 2nd song up from the new album which is out soon. its a lovely song.
