Here’s my weekly email. Thanks for the feedback last week, I put the rock charts at the end, as I will have every week from now on. Again, if anyone has any suggestions for me to add on to next week’s email, let me know. Thanks again, and keep on playing new music!
Records to Check Out:
I’m Not There Original Soundtrack:
Indie rock heavyweights cover Bob Dylan for the film “I’m Not There.” The film portrays Dylan in different segments of his life, as he changes his personalities. Different actors play Dylan throughout the movie.
And here’s a clip from the movie, where Kate Blanchett plays Dylan, and David Cross (Arrested Development) plays Allen Ginsberg: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=6279602058866628140&q=i%27m+not+there&total=21931&start=0&num=10&so=0&type=search&plindex=0
I would rather watch No Direction Home or Don’t Look Back, but that’s just me. It’ll be something worth checking out.
BJ Warshaw, of the band Parts and Labor, does the side project. It’s really good…
For fans of (FFO): Brian Eno, Parts and Labor, Boredoms, Silver Apples, Suicide,
They played yesterday at
Moros Eros “Jealous Me Was Killed By Curiosity”:
For those of you who like the good old indie pop that makes you feel happy.
FFO: Cheap Trick, The Stooges, Modern Lovers, Velvet Underground, T. Rex
Le Loup “The Throne of the Third Heaven of the Nations' Millennium Assembly”
Playing Nov. 12 in
One of the best new bands I saw at CMJ in NYC this past month. One of the highlights of the week.
Ham 1 “The Captain’s Table”:
A mixture of indie rock history, think if David Berman (Silver Jews) or Stephen Malkmus (Pavement) fronted the Olivia Tremor Control, and Ham 1 is what you get. Members from Olivia Tremor Control are actually part of the band.
Prefuse 73 “Preparations”:
Club 8 “The Boy Who Couldn’t Stop Dreaming”:
FFO: Camera Obscura, Belle and Sebastian, Magnetic Fields, Saturday Looks Good to Me
Citay “Little Kingdom”:
Led Zeppelin’s acoustic works, if they had started up on an indie label, circa this year.
Stay tuned for reissues of both Joy Division records, as well as a few live recordings! Also coming up this week: the new Sigur Ros!
