crockett

Charley Crockett loves in Austin, Texas and jams out that modern vintage sounding old school R&B.

I was watching this Wired video on a vinyl pressing robot and loved the sound of the record they use off the top.

Quick Shazam, internet search, and here we are.

That’s a cool record. My wife and I sometimes talk about opening up a little bar. My bar will be like how this record sounds.

or maybe it’ll be like Led Zeppelin into a Tesla song. Still working on it.

Go with yourself.

blame

Bastille‘s new single “Blame” fro the record Wild World has racked up the most new spins this week on US alternative radio.

***

I added Spoon’s “Hot Thoughts” to my Alternative to What? playlist. Coral and I jammed this on the freeway down to Seattle this week. The song came out of relative nowhere on US radio, and is the 9th most active jam climbing.

This one came down the pipe from a singer called Jacob Banks.

The tracks “features new production from the Futuristics and a verse from Boogie.”

And I don’t want to be a super cry baby….I get that people need to eat….but man, my Cloud Nothings tickets arrived for their show at the Biltmore in February. $50 for a pair of tickets to see an indie rock band. Nuts. The service charge was almost as much as buying a third ticket!

How many sleeps till Christmas? Getting close! Can’t wait. I have some Island time in the forecast, so looking forward to a little holiday and catching up with Victoria friends and family.

snow-day

SNOW DAY! It rains a ton in Vancouver but it rarely snows…especially downtown which is right on the ocean. But today, we are getting a nice dusting.

I have a could remixes to share.

I DJ most every weekend at Match Pub in New West…Friday had a group of Pharmacists from Surrey partying and few wanted Indian music. I have a few songs but it is not a strength of my playlist. Some folks sent me a few requests and remixes like this beauty.

DJ Frenzy blasting a Bhangra style of popular Indian music with Bruno Mars “24K Magic.” I am getting to the point where I am also recognizes some of the Indian music in this mix. Neat.

Kygo…remixing one of the top songs out right now. You get it.

lost-frequencies

Downtown today, I ran into my cousin Monica…that was random. I also heard this song I vaguely recognized.

It was a spin on 1993 “What Is Love” originally made famous by Haddaway! Belgian producer Lost Frequencies modernized the 90s dance track.

Maybe this fun throwback will help with all the grey rain today.

unnamed-3

El-P and Killer Mike are Run The Jewels. They’ve announced a new record called RTJ3 out on January 13th. Damn, January 2017 is looking stacked for new music.

The artwork for the new record is above. RTJ went back to the pistol and fist and say this about the art: “For us, the RTJ1 hands were about ‘taking what’s yours’ – your world, your life, your attitude. The RTJ2 hands were wrapped in bandages, signifying injury and healing, which for us represented the growth in ideas and tone of that album. For RTJ3 the bandages are off, the chain is gone and the hands have been transformed into gold. For us this represents the idea that there is nothing to take that exists outside of yourself. You are the jewel.”

New record, so much hype, and a tour! They’ll be in the Pacific Northwest for a series of sold out shows in February.

2.6.17 Portland, OR @ Crystal Ballroom * (SOLD OUT)
2.7.17 Seattle, WA @ Showbox SoDo * (SOLD OUT)

Vancouver rockers JAPANDROIDS took to the stage for first time in 3 years last night at The Cobalt in Vancouver. The set also featured new music that will be part of an album due later (maybe this year).

The boys in the band seemed in genuinely jovial spirits as they returned to the stage and treated the packed dive bar’s crowd. The set included 5 new songs including a song they described as their “longest and weirdest” song on the upcoming record. They also hoped it would be our favourite when this future album drops. This was the first song of the night, “Arc Of Bar.”

At one point they joked that they were “getting 1% better every song. If they play 100 songs they’ll be pretty good.”

The funny thing, the set did grow and build with each song. Here’s the set list that my friend Kirsten Grace sent me. They called a few audibles, but for the most part the night played out like this. I’ll need to get confirmation on what the ????? songs were, they played two after “House That Heaven Built.”

JAPANDROIDS continue their homestand tonight at The Cobalt and roll through toSaturday before continuing to Los Angeles.

10-11 Los Angeles, CA – The Echo
10-15 Toronto – Horseshoe Tavern
10-20 London, England – Birthdays
10-28 Brooklyn, NY – Knitting Factory
10-29 Brooklyn, NY – Knitting Factory
11-25 Mexico City, Mexico – Caradura

For those of you that have never been to Vancouver’s Cobalt on Main Street…it’s a place. Me and my buddy Tyson kept remarking to our partners, “back in the day, this place was more punk!”

My wife snapped this graffiti in the bar. I guess we’re not that original!
