Here's the exclusive song "Constantinople" from it. Buy Picaresque and all other Decemberists vinyl releases from Jealous Butcher (who happen to be some of the nicest record labels out there).

So Dylandarling, Danny and Drublood, send me your addresses at cassettetapes at gmail.com and your prizes will be sent off this weekend.
This was fun and I hope I have another excuse to give away prizes soon!
So who wouldn't love Grizzly Bear? With a name like that and a great video like the one they have for the song "Deep Sea Diver" I don't know a soul who could say they hate them. Their album Horn of Plenty is apprently pretty good.

Mommy and Daddy just released an album and they are great too. I don't know much about 'em but I do like their EP Fighter Style Killer Panda. A lot.

Apparently Deerhoof's new album The Runners Four was made available on iTunes yesterday for legal downloading purposes.
Download that covers album everyone was talking about yesterday here. In case you didn't hear, a bunch of people covered Deerhoof and Kill Rock Stars put it up for downloading.
Also for downloading is the song Wrong Time Capsule.
Five Years (Live at ACL)
Did I mention that at the festival The Decemberists dedicated their song "July, July!" about crooked French Canadians to who else than the Arcade Fire? Cuz they did. Did I mention I swear I saw Apple Paltrow-Martin on the side of the stage during the Arcade Fire's set? Well apparently she was there. Pic c/o Achtung Baby!Don't forget about the contest! It ends tomorrow.

I was also hoping that Eleanor of the Fiery Furnaces (she might be reading this cuz I told her about the contest I'd be having...) would join the Franz on stage for "Eleanor Put Your Boots Back On." I haven't heard anyone saying she has.
Anyway here's a new Franz b-side to "Do You Want To." (follow link)
Oh, I also found out the french horn player I mentioned in my picture post is actually Pietro Amato from Richie Arcade-Fire's side project Bell Orchestre and he's in another band Torngat. Here's an mp3 (there are more on the site)

Anyway, yesterday I mentioned that I'd be having a contest. Well here I am going to announce it! Okay this is sort of lame but it's for a good prize. I was going to do a number between one and a hundred but i decided against it. That many people don't read my site, yeah? Anyway here it goes.
Answer the question "How many blisters did I get on my feet from the Austin City Limits festival?" and you will find yourself the owner of a signed copy of the Fiery Furnaces' latest album EP. Yep Eleanor and Matt Friedberger both signed it and I'm giving it away to you! And as a consolation prize, the runners-up (there will be two of you) will receive Decemberists postcards signed by Colin Meloy and Chris Funk. What a consolation, huh? I know. Anyway start a-guessing. I think I'll end it Thursday or Friday.
(Is this too small? Because we all know I don't have over thirty blisters on my feet...will that many people participate? If you guys think the chances are too slim tell me and I might do the 1 through 100 to give you less of a chance...wait...who would tell me that they'd want that?)

Yesterday I caught the Fiery Furnaces signing in the Waterloo tent. Lucky for us, the FF's had brought vinyl copies of their new record Rehearsing My Choir along with them. So I got them to sign that. Stay tuned because tomorrow when I get back to Utah I'll be announcing a contest that may or may not have to do with the Fieries.
The Sons and Daughters, Decemberists and Built to Spill were at La Zona Rosa last night. I enjoyed the S&D's set again (I found out too late that they'd filled in for Missy Higgins yesterday around noon at the festival). The Decemberists were superb again. They had us all sit down and said they'd see how it worked today. It'll be interesting. Other highlights include Colin singing "A Cautionary Tale" to a small kid in the front row (if you've heard the song you'll find it funny I hope). He also let the kid play his guitar for a bit during the infamous duel part of "The Chimbley Sweep." I'm really glad I've had so many chances to see them this weekend because they're so entertaining. I didn't stick around for Built to Spill. I've heard one CD and someone said they were pretty boring yesterday at the festival and we were tired.
EDIT: It's 6:45 and Franz Ferdinand is on. Caught some of Arcade Fire's set and all of the Decemberists. They were great. Expect a giant super picture post tomorrow of ACL and all the other aftershows and stuff.

So yesterday was good, besides hearing about a few people dropping out. I got to see a few people, the best of which were Mates of State and Spoon. I also went and got Spoon to sign a opy of Kill the Moonlight. Too cool.
Last night was the Black Keys/Arcade Fire show at Stubb's. Simply phenomenal. The opening band was from Austin called What Made Milwaukee famous. They were nervous but did a good job. Good pop. Black Keys came on and blew the roof off the roofless venue. Those two guys make a lot of sound. Arcade Fire came on, everyone went nuts. It was probably one of the best band-audience events. Pretty much everyone was screaming the lyrics back at the band. The band did their usual antics and even did Bowie's "Five Years." I hope someone recorded it. Win said that he and Will had grown up in Houston and they felt awful about Rita. Did I mention the Decembrists cancelled their Houston show? So did M83 and a bunch of people.
Okay well I can't upload pictures yet because I left my cord in Utah. D'oh. Tonight is Sons and Daughters, The Decemberists, and Built to Spill. This afternoon is Death Cab, Fiery Furnaces, and a bit of Bloc Party. The Decemberists show on Thursday in Ft Worth was great, I'll write about it later.
I hope everyone at the fest is staying hydrated. It's effing hot out there. And come to the SBC tent. It's a real nice and that's where I'm updating from.
Friday, September 23, 2005
I saw the Decemberists and Sons and Daughters in Ft. Worth last night. Both put on a good show. The Decemberists had to cancel their show in Houston but said they would be braving ACL. What good people. Their drummer John Moen also revealed that the band has severe B.O. problems. Good to know.

Well on of the bands that contributed to the singles club and has, since then, become one of the biggest indie unerdogs were The Mountain Goats. Their untitled single was pressed on "gorgeous half-purple/half-marbled mustard" vinyl. Mm delicious. Well here it is in a more tangible form.
follow the links on these puppies.

Well here we have two tracks. One is the well-known, oft-covered and oft-hated song "Wonderwall." Marshall strips it down, removes the teen angst that the Gallagher boys screeched about in the original and turns it into a more thoughtful tune. It's along the lines of her cover of "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction."
Marshall also took on Tom Waits when she sang his song "Yesterday is Here." She turns it into something that sounds like it could've come straight off Moon Pix. That's the thing about Marshall; these songs aren't other people's songs. As soon as she plays them they become her's in a fashion. She makes them fit to her liking.
Yesterday is Here
This last one was a b-side to her single for "Nude as the News." This is twocovers in one. "Schizophrenia's Weighted Me Down" combines elements of Sonic Youth's "Schizophrenia" and Alexander "Skip" Spence's "Weighted Down (the Prison Song)."

I don't know if this even warrants an entire post...I'm making lots of posts these days.
M.I.A.-Everyday I Love You Less and Less (follow link)
Watch the entire performance here.
Related, Chris saw M.I.A. in Austin last night.
"Ciautistico! is the debut album from XXL (Xiu Xiu Larsen), a collaboration between the Italian experimental cult band Larsen and James Stewart's mutated-pop project Xiu Xiu. Both groups consider their joint creative clash as a new band in itself more than just an occasional collaboration as it has been already proved by the succesful sold-out theater performances in Italy by XXL."
The website also states that the two groups will continue to work together and release more music under the name XXL.
Ciautistico! is supposed to be out Sept. 20 and will be available on Imporant Records for $12, and they also have three audio samples from the album. Chek 'em out.
"After a hypnotic storm of drum and bass combined with a blink-of-the-eye-quick reel of changing international flags and symbols (interspersed with question marks) on three large screens, the film dipped into the opening cards from DW Griffith's 1915 film The Birth of a Nation. For those unfamiliar with this work, it was the first feature-length silent film, and pioneered the "rules of grammar" film continues to follow today. "The Birth of a Nation" was also used as a Ku Klux Klan recruitment film through the 1960's and takes a Confederate view of events surrounding the Civil War."
It's only a clip buuut you know that's how things go.

"The first band [TONE RODENT] kinda reminded me of a spacemen3 thing, no chord changes, very drony and repetitive. the perfect introduction for the unpredictable electrofreakout explosion of the octopus project."
I dunno seems alright. Maybe nothing spectacular but worth looking into. They have a CD for sale, it's only $5 if you buy it from them...
"Mara was discovered by the folk singer Damien Jurado in late 2002 during a tour that passed through Texas. After Jurado's set, Mara's husband Ryan handed him some of the home recordings that she had been working on while she shyly waited in another room, hoping that Jurado might offer some constructive criticism to help her hone her craft."
She was then introduced to Burnt Toast Vinyl (Saxon Shore, Unwed Sailor, Denison Whitmer), who would go on to release Miller's album Bosque Brown Plays Mara Lee Miller. Cute, huh?

Ssion are hilarious. I saw them opening for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs...last year? Anyway. It's said "shun" like "percuSSION." Hailing from Kansa, they aren't exactly what you'd think would come from there. One man and two women dressed up in chicken and cow costumes running around on stage singing on top of speakers, each other, all while bizarre images flash on a projector screen behind. Cody Critcheloe is the main man of the band. He writes the songs, sings lead vocals and makes the videos that they perform to. Overall they are a very energetic, entertaining band worth seeing and hearing. They released a 7" this spring called World's Worth.
Smells Like Teen Spirits
What Makes a Man Start a Band?
Call Out Our Lions
I Think I Got Something to Prove
Aqui is...well Aqui is different and strange. The leader singer, Stephonik looks like the female version of Stephen Tyler with her giant mouth.They seem like one of those bands that you just have to see live or you haven't really heard them. Their label Ace Fu's biography says:
"The AQUI live show is jaw dropping. Replete with a home-brewed light show, they invade lofts, basements, art spaces, parking lots and more traditional venues where they are now starting to headline. Stephonik whirls possessed through the crowd, as if in midst of exorcism, eyes rolling, her body at the mercy of freestyles and rock arias that channel the spirit of Whitman, Mephistopheles, and Iggy Pop. Dressed in her own designs, she is a cartoon character-disturbingly real-part boy, part woman, part siren, part lion."
Soo to me it sounds a little Yeah Yeah Yeahs, except a more confrontational and spastic (is it possible?) Yes I'm sure it is. They were going to be on tour this fall with Acid Mothers Temple but it seems that they've pulled out.

Besides that matter, I don't know exactly what to make of them musically either. Their self-titled record "is musique noir for knife throwers, cabaret ambience for failed actresses, psychedelic hiphop for feral art critics" according to their label.
It's an interesting combination. It feels like the Dresden Dolls got huskier voices, darker, broodier music, and an MC? It's truly bizarre but the result is almost mesmerizing. Hip-hop beats over trombone and piano. I've never heard it done before.
Hear song snippets at their website.
Oh and check out this crazy 10" record for the song "Like You"

I really didn't want to like Devendra Banhart when I first heard of him. I mean seriously he's just the weird cousin of Sufjan right? Okay maybe that's going a little far. I bought his Rejoicing in the Hands album and was pleased with it much to my dismay.
I mean I'd worked hard to avoid him but when I fell into the Joanna Newsom trap I knew I would soon fall prey to Mr Banhart. And I did. And then I downloaded Cripple Crow when it leaked (yes I'm terrible) and loved it to pieces. Well Cripple Crow actually comes out today in fine record stores and I recommend we all go buy it yeah? Okay if you're not convinced here's something to bring you over to the freakfolk side.

I Found a Reason
First is the new Wooden Wand and the Vanishing Voice LP Buck Dharma which I mentioned in August. They even upped the mp3 I had chosen from the album to share, "I am the One I Am & He is the Caretaker of My Heart," easily the best song on the album.
Also out tomorrow is the new Numbers album We're Animals. They put up an excellent mp3 for that too, "Beast Life."
Also out is the Decemberists' Picaresque on vinyl via Jealous Butcher Records.
One of the things they mentioned that most excited me is Kill Rock Stars Radio. Exciting yeah?

Well Out the Other has been very good at keeping up with all the aritsts. She's nearly finished! I wrote a guest review on Rachael Yamagata for her so that'll be up today or tomorrow so watch out for it.
In exactly two weeks we'll be in the midst of ACL! Exciting.
If you don't have tickets, you won't be there in two weeks. The tickets section of their website says that three-day passes are all sold out and so are Saturday passes. Why is Saturday sold out? Well maybe it's Aqualung, Built to Spill, The Frames, Nine Black Alps, Death Cab for Cutie, The Fiery Furnaces, The Walkmen, Bloc Party and Oasis that sold that day out. Just maybe.
Some of the nice kids over at the Us Kids Know forum posted the video for The Arcade Fire and Bowie performing "Wake Up" at last night's Fashion Rocks (okay it was taped a couple nights ago but aired last night)
Other Arcade news, they're recording their second album.
And they're gonna be on Letterman this next Wednesday (9/14).

Well before he was Sufjan Stevens he was in a band called Marzuki. As far as I know they released a self-titled album and an EP No One Likes a Nervous Wreck. I'm not sure if Sufjan ever sings but he does play Banjo and probably several other instruments, knowing his versatility.

It reminds me a lot of early Liz Phair. I may not be the best judge of that but, hey, if you feel you've been wronged by Liz's shift towards pop since her last album, maybe you should look into Giant Drag to fill in that giant gap.
From what I understand Giant Drag consists of Annie and Micah. They'll be playing four dates with Stellastarr* and then jumping over to England to play several dates with Nine Black Alps.

The song "Kimberly" reminds me a lot of old Weezer, say Blue era gone synthy. Especially the lyrics "You look like you could be much fun/you smell like bubblegum." Now this is a good thing. They're other song, "I Tried," is "a much more serious song that explores weighty issues like teen angst" according to their website. Well you check them out and see what you think.
