I'm going to see Bon Iver tomorrow night so I've listened to this show a few times this week...



Another band I like, Field Report, is opening for them.

Having little experience with either band, Bon Iver reminds me a lot of Sigur Ros. Really cool ambient tunes with a singer with a high-pitched voice. Looks like a chill time.

Yeah, Justin uses that falsetto most of the time. I can see the Sigur Ros comp based on the music more so. However, the show Saturday was much different than the youtube one I shared above since it was a 10 year anniversary show for their first album, which was way more mellow than his newer stuff. He also uses a lot of voice modulation these days, which I don't know if he did in the past.

Skinny Love is probably his most popular song, and also on that first album:



These were my favorite songs of the night:




This cover of Graham Nash's Simple Man was really nice:



The sound in the venue (Bradley Center in Milwaukee), was phenomenal for Bon Iver's set. Unfortunately we got there late and missed Field Report's set. I thought they'd be the second opener, but they were the first. The billing order in the email I got confused me. Oh well.

^ That's cool that someone got those videos up right away.


This is the same five minutes or so looped for an hour. Something to listen to in the background when you're doing stuff.

unreal psychedelic music from the widow of john coltrane. in the 80s she totally went off the map, building an ashram. her kids introduced her to new synthesizers of the day and she recorded these epic vedic chants for the cassette-only temple record label. last year david byrne's record label put together a great collection of these lost recordings 8-)

Been on a Spafford kick recently. Saw them for my first time this past weekend. A few days later they dropped this 2 song first set and 7 song show. Really taking this whole jam band thing seriously.

Try to overlook the song names. They make some beautiful music.

I saw Spafford for the first time late last year and they were pretty awesome. A lot of the songs are pretty catchy too. I would have seen them again in January but my car had issues so I had to skip it. I'll second that recommendation.

I've never listened to Spafford. I never really seek out any jam band type stuff other than Phish. Maybe, someday, I will. For now, there's this:

Cal Tjader? Where do you find this stuff? lol ;) It sounds cool though. Smooth.

I went to see Glen Hansard last night. He played for over 2.5 hours, it was kind of crazy. This was the song that stuck out to me (video from an older performance).

Weird stuff with the browser issues, I'd think that Firefox would be able to handle it, but I had to switch from FF to Chrome a couple years ago when facebook kept causing my PC to hard crash into the BSOD.

Anyways, lol @ Lil Jon, how was he ever a thing? I do remember hearing that song "What" with him, Usher, and Ludacris about a billion times back in the day. Reminds me of living in Miami Beach. Nice place to visit.

I've been listening to Explosions in the Sky a little bit lately. Their newest album, The Wilderness is great. I really like the song Disintegration Anxiety, I love when the snare builds and the guitars come in.

Currently listening to this recording of Ghost Light, Holly Bowling and Tom Hamilton’s new band.

That was good. The female vocals were not the greatest, but the music was great. Track 3 (If You Want It) was my favorite. Track 8 (Lead Driver) was too out there for me, I made it about 3-4 mins and had to skip.

I checked out Holly Bowling's Phish covers a year or so ago, but was a little underwhelmed. One of those things where I loved the idea of it, but the execution didn't really grab me. I really liked the piano and synth stuff in this performance though.

I saw Holly with Everyone Orch at TXRs and it was SOOO great! I'm addicted to Spafford! Like Phish, these guys really do it for me. Amazing musicians, IMO!

I definitely hear a little bit of Phish in Brian's guitar sometimes. The Salamander Song especially reminds me of something Phish would have done years ago too.

I got a chance to see that Field Report band last night. Highlights were a couple of his older songs. These videos are not from last night's show.

Ladies and gents I've just been obsessed with old time fiddle music for the past several years so I thought I'd share a little bit. www.youtube.com/watch?v=gcrP4iCu0Gk

I've forgotten how to embed a video from Youtube... :think:

I've been listening to Childish Gambino during my commute all this week. It is not at all what I expected. It is much more psychedelic, soulful, and funky. It is definitely a mixed bag. I really dig some of the stuff (Redbone especially), but then there is some other stuff that reminds me of everything I dislike about Ween.
Well, here we are, Mr. Pilgrim, trapped in the amber of this moment. There is no why.
