Re: New Music Friday - 3/15/19

I really enjoyed the Karen O & Danger Mouse record, although it had a throwback vibe and honestly it felt like it could have been any of a number of women singing. I tried to listen to Matmos and just couldn't do it. I'm trying the Stephen Malkmus and thinking I can't listen to this either... EDIT: ...

Re: New Music Friday - 3/15/19

Ooh, those all sound exciting. Other things I see on the list:

Stephen Malkmus - Groove Denied
Snarky Puppy -Immigrance
Jenny Lewis - Wasted Youth (Single)

... and like a 100 other albums about which I know absolutely nothing that I may try to randomly sample in case any of it doesn't suck.

given the way things are going, the top of my deadpool list is HBO itself.

(AT&T has not been good for them. Most of the folks I worked with have either left or been laid off, and even Richard Plepler, the long-time CEO, is gone now.)
Aw man. That sounds rough. :(

I always enjoy hearing that somebody is having fun with the Jukebox. :) Care to share the links to some of your filters? Those filters you'd like, those are on the "songs" view, right?

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019 Location

Wow, it's been 14 years since Boston, it would be great to have it there again. I don't think we have any active Boston residents at the moment though, do we? We did New York in 2016 and 2011, but I love New York. Sadly the Sidewalk Cafe closed a couple weeks ago, so our "go to" venue in NY is gone....

The Black Keys "Lo/Hi" - Pretty groovy, I like it. Nothing very innovative but fun. Townes Van Zandt "Sky Blue" - More info here: https://www.npr.org/2019/02/28/696718029/first-listen-townes-van-zandt-sky-blue Lots of nice solo vocal and fingerpicked acoustic guitar songs, classic folk, including a ...

Re: Game of Thrones final season dead pool (spoiler alert)

A new trailer came out and it's making me think they're going to wipe out most of the remaining "heroes" en masse in an epic battle against the dead at Winterfell.

Re: New Music Friday - 3/8/19

I might check out "This Is How You Smile" by Helado Negro. I saw him open for Beirut and he was OK. Seemed like somebody who might be better recorded rather than live.

First and foremost, let's be sure to all listen to Songfight veteran MC FRONTALOT's new album NET SPLIT today. He needs literally thousands of digital plays to equal the sale of one physical CD.

Let's get the ball rolling on figuring out where our annual meetup will be this year. Who wants to host? We could host here in the Bay Area as a backup plan but it'd be great to have it in a new city.

Re: New Music Friday - 3/1/19

I wanted to check out Sun Kil Moon. I'll probably try that next. Right now I'm listening to "Ulfilas' Alphabet" by Sundara Karma. Never heard of them before but I'm enjoying this first track.

Re: Deals On Gear and Software

I'm tempted by today's deal. $1000 off a pretty sweet Martin acoustic-electric. I guess it's a 2016 model, so they're probably trying to clear out inventory or something. Down from $2900 to $1900. https://www.musiciansfriend.com/guitars/martin-standard-series-dc-18e-dreadnought-acoustic-electric-gui...

Re: Give me a hand with these (Walk Steady Reviews)

Great podcast again! I'm listening now and enjoying it. FYI that's my guitar in the BSS song that caught your attention. It's a 90s Japanese HRR ("Hot Rod Reissue") Strat that's like a classic Strat with some heavy metal appointments: a DiMarzio humbucker in the bridge, a Floyd Rose, and shallow C s...
