12. Mai. 2008, 6:19 von jonathanlovattIt's been a while since I wrote in here, so here's what I'm listening and liking at the moment:
Virginia Coalition - Home This Year (not available on Last.fm) - great indie-pop I found on eMusic.com, my favourite song is Stars Align
I've re-discovered some cool 70s and 80s stuff that I remember listening to years ago but then forgotten, mainly re-discovered using Last.fm radio, my favourites at the moment are Turning Japanese by Vapors and Ordinary Angel by Hue And Cry.
Back to some albums, the new album by Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly is really cool pop/rock, I haven't liked much of their previous work but I really enjoy this album, it's strangely life-affirming. Try Young And Lovestruck.
On the more pop-folk side, The Weepies have just released a new album called Hideaway. While it doesn't have all the catchy songs as their last album, it's still a worthy effort and simply chilled and gorgeous! My favourite track is Orbiting - so lovely!

6. Apr. 2008, 6:39 von mcnastystrattonName your top 10 most played bands on Last.fm:
1 Matt Nathanson
2 Jeff Buckley
3 Virginia Coalition
4 Pearl Jam
6 Johnathan Rice
7 Old 97's
8 Jason Mraz
9 Jack Johnson
10 The Pretenders
Now answer the questions according to the numbers:
-- what was the first song you ever heard by 6 (j. rice)?
I don’t remember, the first time I heard him is when he opened for ray lamontagne in ’05… probably my mothers son, or something from his ep.
-- What is your favorite album of 2 (jeff buckley)?
grace. he didn’t live to release any other album (besides eps), so i don’t think it’s proper to talk about the other releases as favorites.
-- What is your favorite lyric that 5 has sung (guster)?
“Remember when you were 14
You'd paint every picture so green
Call your mom on the telephone
Tell her your muse is gone
Tell her there's not a chance
You're ever going to change the world”
“So go on, if this will make you happier
It got you this far, do what you have to

29. Apr. 2007, 4:32 von Panama_JackOk, it's been a while... guess this whole thing got lost in the shuffle somehow. Anywho, much new music to talk about. I received an email from emusic (www.emusic.com) asking to resubscribe to their site, and I'd get 50 free music downloads in return; the dirty little not-so-secret is that the only reason I joined up in the first place was because I could get 25 free songs for doing that. I digress... it's still a pretty sweet website, especially if you're into indie/local music.
Which brings me to two albums I'm slowly getting addicted to: OK to Go and Electric Version. Virginia Coalition falls into the local-boys-done-good music category, kind of similar to O.A.R. Yet while O.A.R can sound at times like they're forcing themselves "to chill" by absolutely any means necessary, Virginia Coalition/"VaCo" so far sounds much more relaxed with themselves. One drawback is that the album gets decidedly softer with each passing track, meaning the songs that scream "single" are up in the front. …

25. Feb. 2006, 18:53 von cubsfan1987Guster: I've seen them three times, more than any other band I've seen. Their live presence is what makes them my favorite band, and if you get a chance, please check these guys out. They always have an amazing opener, often a national act, including such bands as Chevelle. Admittedly, it was very weird to see a heavy band like Chevelle open for a chill-out band like Guster.
Ben Folds: AMAZING live. The piano doesn't sound quite as amazing until you hear it blared over concert-level speakers. I've seen him twice, once as a headliner, and once as an opener for Rufus Wainwright.
Dave Matthews Band: Funny story here. My friends and I got caught in traffic on the way to this show, and I only saw the last five songs of their set. Thankfully, it was the best five songs, including an amazing 10-minute version of "Watchtower."
Brooks & Dunn: Their openers were Big & Rich and The Warren Brothers, and neither act came close to the energy these guys bring to the stage. …
