painting of a panic attack

I mocked up a new playlist on the weekend to soundtrack our adventures and I was sure to include what new Frightened Rabbit music was out there.

Their new record is called Painting of a Panic Attack and comes out on April 8th from Rough Trade. The Scottish band went to the Ditmas Park area of Brooklyn to record the album with Aaron Dessner of The National.

I have this song on repeat!

Back from a whirlwind tour of Victoria. I went for the day yesterday to do some work on our rental apartment….met up with my brother. Had a lunch at Spinnakers, met a wedding couple, a few other chores and back to the ferry. Too fast! Gunna have to make a time for a proper visit.

This sounds nice. Bryce Dessner of The National composed a song for the Leonardo DiCaprio film The Revenant.  The movie that may or may not feature a Bear Rape scene comes out on Christmas day.

Matt Berninger from The National was showing up in the music newsers today because of his new project El Vy AND the tease that The National are recording a new record. Or starting to think about recording a new record. El Vy is a project with Brent Knopf of Menomena and Ramona Falls.  They have a song out in front of their October 30th record called “Return to the Moon.”

Brooklyn mood rockers The National released a new song today called “Sunshine on my Back.” The song was recorded during the Trouble Will Find Me sessions and is a free download if you rent or download their “documentary” Mistaken For Strangers from VHX. The song features the vocals of Sharon Van Etten.

jon
Thursday, Jon Williams and I got spoiled at the Radio Factory.  We had our Zone Band of the Month Geoff Lundstrom in to perform his single “Wash The Dirt Off.”  But then the dude stuck around and recorded a cover of Lorde‘s Much Mega Hit, “Royals.”  His trio consisted of himself with Amy and Chris on keys.  Amy let Jon hold her 1948 Martin D 28 acoustic guitar!

Earlier, we had Victoria’s Zerbin in studio.  The boys dropped a beautiful take on The National‘s  “I Need My Girl.”

Maybe you’ll be able to get behind one of these covers and you’ll share it with your friends.

Go with yourself.

The Morning After Show in on Facebook?  Believe the hype and throw me a “like.”

catching Fire
The premiere of the second Hunger Games film Catching Fire is tonight at Silvercity Tillicum.  The film promises to be one those Hollywood Blockbusters that everyone is lining up to see.

The soundtrack for thefilm  is an interesting mix of pop and modern rock heavy weights.  Coldplay, Christina Aguilera, Ellie Goulding and Lorde sharing disc-space with The Lumineers, The National, Imagine Dragons and Patti Smith?  Sure.

Digital Spy said the best song on the soundtrack is Sia’s “Elastic Heart.” The song  features the sounds of Canadian R&B star The Weeknd.

Let’s have  a listen to a few of the contributions from Zone bands….

And here is that Lorde cover of Tears for Fears that some people love and some people pan.

The Hunger Games is one of these mainstream, mass-appeal things that weirds me out. Children fighting to the death for our entertainment?  Put that film in EVERY theatre because boys and girls, young and old are lining up to witness that!

I dunno, I watched the film.   Seeing Jennifer Lawrence murder children is pretty entertaining, so I get it.  But how about that soundtrack!?!  The National?  Yes please.

Go with yourself.
