4 Jun 2010, 07:12 by papiercalqueSat 29 May – Sasquatch! Music Festival 2010
Last.fm says that I have 99% compatibility with this festival so good thing I went!
This is a review but it is also a re-experience. I am going to go thru the festival as I saw it, thru my eyes and the video cameras of the lovely people that have posted their videos on youtube.
Fell asleep when the sun was coming up and woke up a few hours later. Waited in a long ass line to get into the venue, but at least Portland's own All The Apparatus was playing for the folks who were waiting. They were really good and even covered Nantes which was the perfect song for a beautiful sunny day in the Gorge.
Brother Ali was the first act we caught. He was fun, played a lot of songs of The Undisputed Truth which is a really great record. DJ Snuggles blew everyone away with his beatboxing skillz.
We scooted up front for Minus the Bear. The sound was really good, spot on.

Try not to repeat a song title. It's a lot harder than you think! Repost as "my life according to (band name)"....i was bored...

25 Jan 2008, 17:18 by MindrolSo i like Singapore in general. I like the feeling of living in perpetual summer, although not having seasons robs you of the feeling of time passing and breeds complacency. I like the fact that i can get away effortlessly to experience different cultures and landscapes during the weekends. I like the fact that everyone here parties like rockstars but still take time to build friendships. But damn, i fucking hate the fact that no decent acts want to perform here. Last year we had Jens Lekman and Jose Gonzalez, and Muse. Jesus, is this the best we can do, people?!?!?!?
Sadly, the best acts i've seen last year is a toss-up between LCD Soundsystem and Yeah Yeah Yeahs in NY. That was in August and it feels like a lifetime.
I cannot wait to get away in February with the hope of experiencing that rapture, when nothing matters except the music which ripples through your being like wind through fields of wheat.

22 Jan 2008, 00:08 by pecusitaEveryone did top 100, 50, 40, 30, 20, 10 even top 5 albums of the now-oh-so-very-past-year, since I’ve always suffered of the salmon syndrome, I’m doing the top 15 most played albums of 2007 in mid-january! Whoooooppeeee.
That’s right most played no quality stacking against one another. I’m just too lazy for that and actually comparing quality… well I just don’t need the headache! There were far too many good and great albums last year, by far the best musical year I have ever experienced.
This stats were calculated on December 26, due to a series of reasons, and not posted until this day because I’m a proclaimed procrastinator… well, that and I actually had some stuff that were more important. Shocker! I know.
The categories are most played track, and runner-up; least played and most skipped, thanks to that amazing yet overlooked iTunes counting stat; and best video from that album just because I like to embed stuff from YouTube. Some results were surprising to say the least.

This Album was great and it was made even better when I saw them play at ACL Fest. I got so close to these guys, My friend scored me a media pass, so I got some great pictures.
9. The Stage Names
This album may have scored higher, but I got it in November so I didn't get much time to listen to it at great lenghts.
8. Someone to Drive You Home
These songs just stay in your head all day long.
7. Icky Thump
Great White Stripes album in years, loved the social commentary that it had.
Didn’t really appreciate this album or group much, until I saw them at ACL fest. The lead singer is just so sexy when she’s at the mic. Great chill music but it’s also thought provoking and moving.
5. Sound Of Silver
I saw them play Us v Them and North American Scum live, and that’s when I knew this album was amazing.
4. Widow City
I didn't have a whole lot of hope for this album but boy was I wrong. It's weird and repetitive but it's just so damn interesting.
2 Jan 2008, 13:10 by Kaoru_is_hereEven though I probably better shouldn't have done it, I invested some of my Christmas-money in a couple of LPs instead of putting it aside for moving to another flat and everything that is potentially connected to it. But what the heck, everybody needs some impractical luxury every once in a while in his life, n'est-ce pas?
Anyway, I added the following things to my record-collection:
Thomas Dolby - The Flat Earth
I was quite surprised even finding that one at all, since I never stumbled over his albums in a second hand-shop before. And it only was 4€! Whee! Well, I may not like it as much as his debut The Golden Age Of Wireless, but it's still a very good record with excellent pop songs and a warm atmosphere. Anyone who thinks that synthpop equals cold and flat sounding music should check this out. He (or she) might be proved wrong here.
The Tubes - The Tubes & What Do You Want From Live
I had even some more luck and some Tubes-albums which weren't The Completion Backward Principle. …

1 Oct 2007, 15:37 by Post-RockerFri 28 Sep – Arcade Fire, LCD Soundsystem
You gotta love it when a show starts on time. LCD Soundsystem, sans James Murphy, took the stage at precisely 8 o'clock. After setting up a nice vibe with a couple minutes of instrumental Us v Them, getting the crowd easily involved in their groove, Murphy took the stage to thunderous applause. The rest of the LCD lineup consisted of: a guitarist who looked amazingly similar to Owen Clarke Al Doyle* of Hot Chip; next there was a diminutive firecracker who was quite skilled at tweaking her surplus of knobs and keys; to her left the bassist looked amazingly similar to oliverpattison**; and then the drummer, who Murphy introduced by the monosyllabic name of Pat. The man who needs no introduction, a little overweight, scruffy, t-shirt clad, not pretentious at all, lived up to his persona. He was full of energy and humor, even pointing at his own belly while singing "But me, (look it’s a tidy tummy)" during Time to Get Away.
