20. Apr. 2008, 17:48 von laura_macFri 18 Apr – Rites of Spring
So, it's that time once again--Rites draws nigh! It's a semi-great lineup this year, much better than last year at least. Will I faint, cry, or throw my panties at Britt Daniel during Spoon? Will I get crunk at Lil Jon and do any or the above (for different reasons)? Stay tuned to find out!
Wild Sweet Orange - Not bad. The singer sounds like the guy from the Decemberists.
Jeremy Lister - I've seen him before, but he's definitely better in small clubs. And he didn't play my favorite song of his, Fool's Gold.
The Avett Brothers - missed it (dinner at SATCo)
Lady Antebellum - Still at SATCo...
Cupid - Back in the dorm, waiting for the rain to stop...
Colbie Caillat - In the interest of nabbing a good spot to see Spoon...yes. Yes I did attend the Colbie Caillat set. I will say that she met my expectations, but those expectations were very low. My one compliment to her is that she has excellent taste in songs to cover (A Bob Marley song, Beast of Burden). If only she was a better musician.

There's no question for me, Spoon are the best operating American rock band of the moment. They always manage to push all my buttons for this kind of music, and I have yet to be disappointed by a new Spoon album. With Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga, they seemed to take all the tricks they've learned on their previous few albums, mix them together perfectly, and just make things extremely tight. The result is a set of stylish and engaging songs drawing not only from American and British rock but also folk, jazz, soul, and even some reggae. There's also enough atmosphere, experimentation, and studio magic to give these songs real depth.

Rhthm & Soul

18. Jul. 2007, 0:45 von 3x1minus1i kind of need to know this, and i kind of can't rest until it's clarified.
on the new Spoon album that last.fm claims doesn't exist-- "Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga" (which is fabulous, get it); in the song Rhthm & Soul:
is he singing about *kazaam*? because i'm hearing nothing else. i have 3 people agreeing with me on this. but it's just too hilariously random and awesome to be true.
your opinion on this matter is greatly appreciated. especially if you are britt daniel.
19. Jun. 2007, 7:17 von laura_macI just got back today from my very first Bonnaroo. Incredible, incredible.
I left early Thursday morning, picked up my friend Kathryn in Nashville, and proceeded toward Manchester. The trip is usually less than an hour, but of course the traffic was heinous. We left Nashville at around 11:00 AM and got to our campsite at almost 5 PM. We were in one of the very farthest sites, about a 20-minute walk away from Centeroo (where all of the stages and other activities are) but since that's the distance I'm used to walking to class anyway it wasn't so bad.
It was BALLS HOT outside (as you'll see later, I'm not the only one who thought so). After we got the camp set up (which, astonishingly, went off without a hitch), we headed off to Centeroo to see some shows. We checked out Ryan Shaw first, since he was the first artist to play -- Bonnaroo's "opening pitch." We stayed for about three songs of his set and then moved on, to The Little Ones, where I got to hear Lovers Who Uncover, which was fun. …
