New Field Music

It turns out Field Music's hiatus hasn't lasted indefinitely.  After stints with School of Language and The Week That Was, it seems as if the Brewis brothers are back at it.  They have announced the track list to a 20 song album to be released in February.

It also seems that they are coming back to the States after a disappointing (for us DC folks) tour a few years ago.  They have dates in March, but none in DC.  Check them out here.

And for your veiwing pleasure, a new music video.

Anyone interested in carpooling to NYC on 3/23?

Holy Shit

Yep, posting again. Sorry for the hiatus. First off, sorry. And second, thanks to those who stuck on for a few months, checking it twice a day because you still don't know how to use Google Reader. You are real Americans.

Of course you know Wilco is coming out with a new album in June. You can stream it here if you would like a preview (actually, it's a full view). Warning: it will automatically play.

After one listen through, I've come to the conclusion that I like Wilco. There, I said it. I know it's so against the grain, but I'm gonna put myself out there.

Well, that's about it for now. I have to ease into this, I've been out of the game for a while. Hopefully more to come throughout the summer.

Drive-by Truckers @ 9:30 Club Setlist

Truckers front man, co-founder, and co-lead singer Patterson Hood was sick last night and couldn't make the show.  Instead of cancelling, the band offered your money back if you wanted it but said they'd go on without him and do their best for those who still wanted to come.

Cooley and Shonna picked up the slack and it was, all things considered, a pretty damn good show.  Patterson's mic -- considerably higher than the rest -- remained empty at center stage, and Shonna even poured out a little Jack Daniels down on his spot in tribute.  They also asked for volunteers to sing a Patterson song, and whomever won the right to do "Life in the Factory" did a great job.  

So here's the setlist for the Hoodless DBT set last night at the 9:30:

Daddy's Cup / 3 Dimes Down / Panties in Your Purse / Women Without Whiskey / I'm Sorry Huston / Checkout Time in Vegas / Gravity's Gone / Space City / Carl Perkins' Cadillac / Bob / Home Field Advantage / One of these Days / Lisa's Birthday / Marry Me / Cottonseed / Purgatory Line / A Ghost to Most / Life in the Factory (with dude from the crowd) // When the Pin Hits the Shell / Zip City / Shut Up and Get on the Plane

I'm Not Gonna Get Caught

Quick question regarding Wilco's "Pot Kettle Black."

Is it just me, or is that beginning little bit of feedback supposed to mimic the sound of a tea kettle whistle?

This just occurred to me yesterday. At first I thought it was really clever, but now I'm wondering if I might just be a few years late to the (tea) party.

Wilco - "Pot Kettle Black" (live at Lollapalooza 2008)

*Not sure if you can really hear it on this live version -- oh well.

A Wedding Band covers Mazarin's "Another One Goes By"

So I saw this and I think you'll agree -- it had to be shared. It's a great tune by the now-defunct Mazarin -- currently reincarnated as Black Stoltzfus after the band's lead dude Quentin Stoltzfus. You may recognize it from the Walkmen's A Hundred Miles Off album... a good cover. This one? Well, you decide.
