1. Okkervil River - The Stage Names
This album grabbed me and never let go. Lead singer/songwriter Will Sheff writes and sings about the perils of becoming (relatively) famous, how to keep the band going when the tour becomes a drag, how weird it is to have groupies, and what happens when your creativity or songwriting ability dries up. The wonderful part of this album is the diversity of the songs (from rock Unless Its Kicks to suicide ballad Savannah Smiles to obvious motown influence You Can’t Hold the Hand of a Rock and Roll Man) and the array of instrumentation used (from coronet to pedal steel to rock piano). You can tell Sheff put a lot of time, thought, and effort into the songwriting, and his voice has really matured over the last few years. I actually had to ban myself from listening to this at about mid-October lest I burn out of it. I will love this album for a long, long time.
15 Dec 2007, 05:23 by Cyb3rBurn3r1. How did you get into 31 (Foo Fighters)?

26 Nov 2007, 04:00 by rustystakeSuch a cool idea. I've been wanting to do this for a while. I limited myself to only use one song from every artist which made it pretty tough. I will probably update this as I think of different songs!

I Taught Myself How To Grow Old
30 Jun 2007, 15:26 by mm83What a way for me to be introduced to Ryan Adams's live show. I mean really, I'm still somewhat speechless from last night, although I'm going to do my best to find the words right now!
Let me start by explaining my love/hate relationship with the Somerville Theater. The venue itself is incredible. It's actually a gorgeous old movie theater, that still plays older movies daily and a handful of live performances. Needless to say, the theater is not very big, which gives the performer a very intimate setting with his audience. Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to get tickets to shows here. This past February, Bright Eyes came to Somerville, and despite signing onto Ticketmaster the moment they went on sale, the show sold out before I could even put in my request. Anticipating the same issue when I saw that Ryan was coming to Somerville, I literally sat at my desk at work, continually pressing the refresh button 15 before tickets went on sale. Still, I was locked out. …
