short and bitter sweet
today has gotten away from me and that hasn't allowed for quality thought regarding today's blog and for that i am sorry.
i will not leave you high and dry though. i will instead guide you to a couple music sites i love.
it's a great resource for music. new music. bands touring. new albums. new VIDEOS. reviews. the occasional free download and just over all, sound opinions on sound. near the top right of the site is a field in which you can type your email address and get weekly newsletters. totally up to you. i get it. i like it.
the second site... is, wow, quite cool. in their own words:
"We’re going to give you something that you truly have never heard. We are not giving you songs from someone you love’s record album, thereby stealing from someone you love. We’re giving you exclusive, re-worked, alternate versions of old songs and unreleased tracks by some of your favorite bands and by a lot of your next favorite bands."
that's right kids, free music galore, recordings you can get no where else, of awesome bands that stop in their studios and record their old stuff in new ways and often times record new stuff not out on a album yet. radical right? :-) Meet daytrotter.com i think you're going to become great friends. check the "sessions archive" for their complete catalog.
OH OH OH one last thing, heard a song on XM by an artist called Julian Plenti on my drive in to work. sounded SO familar. here's why, love Interpol? their singer, in case you weren't aware, Paul Banks has got a side thing going on. and said side thing's new album came out TODAY. don't want to commit to the entire thing? sign up for the mailing list on Julian Plenti's website and get a download FREE. awesome, no? here you go: julian plenti is... skyscraper
questions? ask me. not so bitter after all, no? 'til tomorrow...
