blueman tickets! hooah! and rock concert movement #2!

i'll bet teapot has a smooth southern drawl down there in carolina. subtle though, not the hollywood version. here in kentucky, it's a little diff-ernt, not nearly as purdy. mor'va mount'n thang... i reckon.

Sep 16th 2006

A slight Southern drawl would probably be a little sexy, but I'm not a native of the Carolinas. I was born and raised in NY and lived there for 22 years, so I don't have a Southern accent at all. In fact, I think I'm a fast talker. One time when I was answering the phone at one of my horrible office jobs when I first moved here, the client on the other end of the phone said to me, "You're not one of us ya'll now, are ya?" I was speechless, and too shy to do anything but mumble, "No." No, sir, I'm not one of ya'll. But I do like the weather here :-) And the sweet tea is pretty good, too.

Being in Kentucky, ferd, you must be confronted with unfair Southern stereotyping fairly often. I find myself getting defensive on behalf of my adopted state all the time. But at least I'm not in West Virginia ;-)

My sister and I are going to see Aimee Mann this Thursday. It's an all-acoustic solo show at a really small theater. I am happy :-) I love "Amateur" by her, as well as almost everything else she's done since "Voices Carry." Plus, it will be a girls' night out, and I get to wear real adult clothes (i.e. nothing with stains or drawstrings) and I don't have to carry sippy cups or wet wipes with me. Even if she sings "Jingle Bells" 200 times in a row, I'll be happy.

Sep 16th 2006 edited

Good for you, LT. Trade that sippy in for a bottle of something beer or wine like. I am counting the days till "date night" next week. We are actually going to a restaurant that does not have pizza, balloons, and menus accompanied by crayons.
Also, my husband and I are NY transplants as well. But in FL, New Yorkers are everywhere,so, win win. Hardly any sweet tea here, though. Only at Sonny's BBQ.

The last concerty thing I did was Cirque Du Soliel. Probably spelled that so wrong. It was very cool. Blue Man Group looks like it would be great.

I'm sorry, I MUST make another AD reference.

Hey guys, I'm new here, and I have to say, I when I looked in this thread I was pleasantly surprised to see some pretty darn good music. So yeah, most of these have already been mentioned but right now I'm really into...

Wilco, The Shins, The Minus 5, Radiohead (also the new Thom Yorke album), and lately I've found myself listening to the new Sonic Youth album ("Rather Ripped") quite a bit.

but I like and listen to a good bit of what's been mentioned already. Man, you guys like the Office AND listen to good music - Score!

Sep 18th 2006

I have been listening to the new Barenaked Ladies new album(s?) pretty much nonstop for the last couple weeks, taking breaks only to watch The Office. The iTunes deluxe edition includes the material from their album to be released in March or April or so, plus bonus songs, and I also preordered the physical copy of the cd, so I got the live, acoustic versions of all the new material (well, the 13 songs on the physical release)... when I'm not quoting material from The Office, I'm singing BNL lyrics to myself, so I've got a two-track mind.

Jan 11th 2007

bumpity bump bump...I'm with you Brian! Besides the last post from PWJ reminded me that I love the Barenaked Ladies. Which I'm sure just to be contrary, DftF hates...haha. (By the way, I like Billy Joel, but a comment against him wouldn't have offended me).

Jan 11th 2007

Glad to have this thread resurrected. I've read every post and have fattened my iTunes trove considerably since last summer, thanks to y'all.

My new Christmas gift CDs, all of which I recommend:

Tracy Bonham Blink the Brightest
Soundtrack to The Last Kiss
Craig Armstrong Piano Works
Decemberists The Crane Wife
John Mayer Continuum
Sufjan Stevens The Avalanche

Back Lip has an amazing song that's actually a free download. It's called Shredded Hearts and it's at DannyWay.com.

Call the shots, call the cops, shake it up till it pops.

Le Tigre is my new go to for aggression music. Deceptacon is a wicked track.

Okay, since it's been suggested that we "migrate" to this thread for music discussion, I thought I'd share this little tidbit here:

I was just going through my CDs, looking for something (not important what, and I've forgotten anyhow, so . . . paradox), and I just ran across a CD I'd forgotten I had: the greatest hits of Carl Douglas called, The Soul of the Kung Fu Fighter. (Can you guess what Carl Douglas' biggest hit was?) As if that's not funny enough, on the front cover, there is a photo of Mr Douglas wearing what appears to be orange-and-red samurai garb, including a big droopy band around his head with Kanji scrawled across it -- and, apparently, he's singing, cos he has a microphone in one hand and there's a spotlight on him.

Hee hee.

The new Shins CD - "Wincing the Night Away" - measures up to the hype. I've been listening to it constantly since yesterday.

Jan 23rd 2007

I'm so excited about that one! The review I read wasn't ecstatic, but I'll probably get it anyway.

I'm currently a latecomer to listening to TV on the Radio. Cool, if sometimes rough on your ears.

I've been alternating with the Decemberist's "The Crane Wife."

Jan 23rd 2007

It's not exactly "new" music, but it is something lingering around my playlists that I hadn't heard in months: The Matmos album The Civil War. Very bizarre, and strangely pretty, fusion of IDM and old-timey folk music. Some of it's so ugly it's unlistenable, but sometimes it has this uncanny grace to it.

I love it when that happens: You rediscover something you used to love but had forgotten about.

Jan 23rd 2007 edited

Completely agree about The Shins, Nicest. Good, good stuff. Tracks 8 and 9 are my personal favorite.

This week, I've been listening to a lot of Acceptance, Mae, and live Neko Case (I must say, Austin City Limits gets some AWESOME acts!)

Oh, and that song by The Rapture's been stuck in my head all week. "People don't dance no more, they just stand there like this...."

Jan 23rd 2007 edited

The new live Neko Case CD is great - I just purchased it through eMusic. I would have loved to have seen her taping at ACL - it's not easy to get tickets, but she plays Austin quite often so I've been able to see her in some good settings. The last ACL taping we got into was Billy Bragg a few years back when he was recording the Guthrie songs...

Jan 24th 2007

The new Shins album - good, but I thought was step down from their last effort.

Someone mentioned the new Of Montreal; just got it and I really like it. Darker lyrically, but still a psychadelic trip.

And I can't say this is very new, but The Pipettes were among my favorite discoveries last year. Catchy, poppy, just plain fun.

As Napoleon would say...."Luckyyyyyyy!"

Jan 24th 2007

They mentioned Neko Case on Veronica Mars last night, and it's a name I've heard before, but I've never heard any of the music. Is it a band? A person? If a person, of which gender? Where was I when people started listening to it?

Jan 24th 2007 edited

It's a woman, and her stuff is pretty good. Wasn't she also with New Pornographers? Is she still?

Edit: Or were you being sarcastic, DwightfromtheFuture ? I don't "read" sarcasm well...

Jan 24th 2007

No, it's not sarcasm. I honestly didn't know.

Jan 24th 2007 edited

This is my favorite summary of Neko Case:

"...she tears through country music conventions like a mad gale blowing through a barroom, spilling drinks, mussing hair, and pushing the wrong people into each other's arms."- Michael McCall, Nashville Scene

Listen to her stuff at Bloodshotrecords.com

Jan 24th 2007

Nicest Insect, that is a lovely description! Positively poetic...

I am a bit disturbed to have discovered the following: After DftF's query, I went into my iPod to listen to New Pornographers to see if I could recognize Neko Case's voice (I could). I was alarmed to discover, however, that alphabetically, the artist listed directly after New Pornographers is...Night Ranger.

Honestly, how did "Sister Christian" sneak its way onto my iPod? Now, not only do I have that song going through my head, but I also have a not-so-irrational desire to see the movie "Boogie Nights" again.

Jan 24th 2007 edited

Must be gremlins. You are brave to admit this.

Neko also sings with Kelly Hogan and Edith Frost on the Mekon's "Journey to the End of the Night," which is my favorite Mekons album. Hearing all thier voices along with Sally Timms just puts me over to the top. Kelly Hogan regularly sings backup to Neko, and her voice is something special as well...

More recent faves: I've been enjoying the recent Camera Obscura ("Let's Get Out Of This Country") and Sean Lennon ("Friendly Fire").

Jan 24th 2007

Oh, Edith Frost, the sound track to my college depression.

Gorgeous and sad music.

Jan 24th 2007 edited

Um, yeah. But, I will say:

In class, I have used Scritti Polliti, GrandMasterFlash, and Fountains of Wayne's "Stacey's Mom", to exemplary results.

My kids kick ass. That's all I'm saying.

Jan 24th 2007

Here's an interesting article from the New York Times about the music used in the Office. They interviewed both Greg Daniels and Jennifer Celotta.

What class?

Jan 25th 2007

That article is great.

Gotta wonder, though: how does Jim manage to be reasonably hip? He's not super cutting edge hip, but....There's something.

I actually remember reflecting that playing Clap Your Hands Say Yeah when you're having a bunch of coworkers over for a barbecue was an interesting choice. I specifically wondered if he was trying to appear hip for Pam, as music-loving boys sometimes do.

"Sing" by Travis was just on his iPod by happenstance, though....However perfect it was for swaying.
