Sebastien Grainger - (Are There) Ways To Come Home

alex on October 22 2008

This is half of death from above 1979, sounds pretty good right? Regardless you may have noticed the lack of entries/site being down on monday. There's a lot of shit going on, for instance - I have the week off of work to re-write this peice of poo music blog known as left as rain and CMJ is going on in New York so I'm at shows all day. In short, dont expect much on here this week, so check back next week for hopefully a new version of left as rain.

Margot and The Nuclear So.. - Skeleton Key

arex on October 15 2008

Check out Margot and The Nuclear So and So's. Chris and I are DJing at Southside Speakeasy (south williamsburg - s. 1st between havemeyer and roebling) this Thursday. Come out and support us in addition to welcoming Southside Speakeasy to Williamsburg. So the day has come where LAR has reached server capacity, with every new song we take down one old song at the bottom of the play list, the old stuff will return in 2.0, maybe. Do you believe this XML file is 4300 lines of code?

Chairlift - Evident Utensil

chris on October 14 2008

Cop This album instantly. I checked them out at glasslands about 5 months ago and was blown away. Don't you hate it when you think you have a secret and then apple or cadillac uses them for a commercial. Remember when VW used NIck Drake... I was furious.

Jim James and Calexico - Goin' To Acapulco

chris on October 13 2008

Sorry for the Hiatus, but I have been broken. Here is a track from Todd Haynes' Im Not There. I have to tell you that Richard Gere surprised me in this scene. Damn near a tear jerker.

The Virgins - Rich Girls

alexander brooklyn mejias on October 10 2008

The first e-mail I ever recieved after starting this site was from a listener by the name of Amanda, she recommended some Virgins on here and I regretfully brushed the name aside like an arrogant asshole. I checked them out a couple weeks later and wasn't feeling it, days passed, months passed, I got a couple hair cuts, ate a bunch of meals, worked out a couple times, broke some hearts, and grew up. Now I'm digging The Virgins, see Amanda, I wasnt ready yet, but now I've advanced to your level in musical taste. Cheers Amanda.
