Don’t you know your creator is running out of ideas

In Choice Cuts, Song Reviews, Worldwide on March 24, 2011 at 4:43 pm

The AV Club always does a great job with their interviews, getting people to talk about what inspires them in a way never comes off as pretentious. Good things (in fact, sometimes great things) have come from these interviews. Their recent interview with Kurt Vile, who’s becoming one of my favorite artists of late, turned me on to an awesome song by Bert Jansch called ‘Poison’. Read the rest of this entry »

Just a little quickie to get your Tuesday going right.

Its Edan’s Echo Party Mix and its Psych-Dance awesomeness has been spinning in my head for a while now.

A week is a long time…

In Canada, Celebrate Your Scene, Choice Cuts, Montréal, New England on February 28, 2011 at 3:22 pm

Not to post anything, that is. So here we are. Back from our respective ‘reading breaks’ and ready to bring you all the goods. We’re just gonna dive right in with a ‘what you (may have) missed while we were gone’ post. A few hints: Silly Kissers, Sean Nicholas Savage, Armen at the Bazaar, Four Eyes, and then some upcoming show goodness.

Like…what does Gold Panda drive to work?

In Choice Cuts, London and the UK on February 17, 2011 at 4:30 pm

Marriage from Gold Panda on Vimeo.

This is probably one of the most heartwarming things I’ve seen in quite some time. Coupled with the 70 degree days this week in February has brought to Maryland, I’m rolling on a surprisingly natural high right now. Read the rest of this entry »

What We’ve Been Neglecting To Tell You

In Choice Cuts, Gigs, Montréal, Song Reviews, Worldwide on February 14, 2011 at 1:34 pm

Get ready.

I’ve been snowed-under (get it?) in work lately. Or at the very least, buried in what I should be doing. So with that being said my show-going/midday-procrastinating has been and will continue to be minimal for the rest of this week. However, don’t let this trick you into thinking there’s nothing good going on in Montreal these days.

In Celebrate Your Scene, Choice Cuts, Montréal on February 10, 2011 at 5:40 pm

Jacques Greene never lets us see his face, but in this short teaser video for a cr0ss Canada tour he shows us how he builds a track live, bit by bit. If you like this, you should probably come to the LuckyMe showcase at Club Lambi this Friday and catch him live….(of course!).

Conversation: Private Eyes

In Choice Cuts, Features, Song Reviews on February 9, 2011 at 10:24 pm

I’m really proud of the work my Montreal compadres do on all the local news and show information. Unfortunately, as the lone Procrastinator trapped down here in the desolate Washington D.C area (note the capital P, because trust me, there’s quite a few regular procrastinators in the United States’ capital), I can’t really contribute the way the rest of the boys can. Instead, I attempt to make my mark through my (hopefully) clever writing, (probably not that) unique opinions, and over use of parentheses (funny, right?). Anyway, we’re looking to expand on some of the more original content in the weeks to come. Here’s a little taste of what we have to offer, in the form of an old piece Matty and I did on the inscrutable Hall and Oates. Read the rest of this entry »

Friday Feeling| Ami Koita ‘Mory Djoa’

In Choice Cuts, Worldwide on February 4, 2011 at 10:38 am

For anyone feeling a bit tired/miffed at the end of a long (snowyy) week. Let the undulating rhythms and wonderful voice of Ami Koita cheer you up. FEEL the bassline in the last 10 seconds of the song. Such a sick tone.
