Two excellent Tom Waits albums.

Sure you've all heard Tom Waits but for those of you who haven't fallen for him haven't heard these two albums!! Notice how they span like 30 years.

Links valid until August 2nd.

So so beautiful. A good example of his "bawler" and "brawler" songs.

Amazing to put on and listen all the way through while or simply have in the background during a dinner or hangout. They converted the recording studio into a diner/lounge area where people were able to sit and listen to the band play for the making of this album. It's fantastic and a great example of Waits ability to be hilarious talking clever bullshit.

Audio Antihero Compilation

A wonderful compilation in support of Rape Crisis featuring both Marblemouth and Cloud. Please help the cause if you can spare the cash! In either scenario please check this compilation out. This is the same UK-based label that Comfort Songs (the third Cloud record) will be released on CD later this year.

ytiC eht fo seripmaV nredoM - DnekeeW eripmaV

This link would get removed immediately if I didn't write the title backwards.

Really digging this album. I think it's all very enjoyable save two songs "Hudson" and "Worship You" which at this point I'd say I don't like at all.  Overall, though, great. This band has been growing so much. I think it's their best work yet and another step up to a mature sound. This album also deals with some really heavy themes about accepting death and the brevity of life. The intensity of such topics is beautifully topped off with an unbelievable [lyrical] resolution in the closing track. Read along with this one. It's great.

All right. Grab it while it's hot--

valid until May 28th

Come to this show

The Feelies - Crazy Rhythms [1980]

So kids my age know all the mainstream hits of the late 70s and early 80s-- but did you ever wonder where the good shit was? Wonder no more!!

This band is so fucking awesome. They're kinda like the B-52s meets the youthful nerdy fun of Northport bands like Palmkite and For Serious This Time-- topped off these beautifully endless "rhythms" where the band jams on the same chord for like five minutes. It gets you so pumped. Perfect for exercising. Great great stuff here. Also Georgia Hubley and Ira Kaplan from Yo La Tengo met at a Feelies show!
enjoy- link valid until May 14th. =]
