Mark Stock at Austin City Limits Day Three: Popsicles and that Canadian Mega-Band

picture 8

Music
“You guys want us to play," asks Josh Epstein, half of Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. "Or do you want us to keep throwing you popsicles?" Perhaps it was a mistake to toss frozen treats into the crowd so early in the set, but it is 95 degrees and the masses are desperate for refreshment. It’s a bit like pigeons fighting over bread crumbs. Darwin’s survival of the fittest is on full display, as the strong ...   More

Water Tower Bucket Boys Tour Diary: "Oh, You're Playing the Best Pub in the World!" (Dorset, England)

dorset

Music
Every mention of our gig in Dorset drew the same reaction: “Oh you’re playing at The Square and Compass! That’s the best pub in the world!” The Square and Compass is the best pub I’ve ever been to, and I can’t imagine one that could be any better. I highly recommend a visit to Dorset, and more specifically the Square and Compass if you are anywhere near the south of England. We rolled ...   More

Mark Stock at Austin City Limits Day Two: Antlers, Drexler Jerseys and a Keytar Solo

acl

Music
Saturday in Texas stands for college football, long lines at the liquor store, and, on this particular Saturday, live music. The AntlersWhat I like most about this dreamy, melancholic Brooklyn band is that its live sets are of a different species than its recorded material. This amounted to a stellar, somewhat improvisational ACL set. Recent release Burst Apart leaves just as much vastness for live ...   More

Loch Lomond Tour Diary: SWEET THUNDER! (Bellingham, WA to Seattle, WA)

wheely

Music
Two shows in, and it’s already clear how rocking this new lineup is. MusicfestNW was the perfect way to build up momentum for our two-week West Coast tour. Recording with Larry Crane at the Ace Hotel and playing our T.L.E. show at Rontoms sparked a good fire to light our way. Unfortunately, Jade couldn’t come out on our little jaunt, so we’re like a three-legged dog pulling some new tricks. Our ...   More

Cut of the Day: Serge Severe feat. Luck-One, "Know the Truth"

serge severe

Music
Everybody knows the global economy is fucked right now. And anybody with common sense should be troubled by the great disparity between rich and poor in this country. I had a long conversation about this with a smart friend last night. We were sitting outside Valentine's and he summed it up real well: "I think shit is about to get really weird in this country," he said. "There are just too many ...   More

Videos: Laura Gibson, iAME, Burning Yellows, Parson Red Heads

Indoors, Outdoors and Everywhere Between

laura gibson

Music
Just four videos today, none of which feature any special effects. Laura Gibson, "Milk-Heavy, Pollen-Eyed"I thought I had tired of all those "playing a song out in public" videos that La Blogothèque wrought years ago, but this one from Mason Jar Music—a creative take on what may be my favorite track from Laura Gibson's forthcoming record, La Grande—is shockingly beautiful. It feels pretty standard ...   More
