Also you kind of suck at google she got shakes. If you type 'bon iver bushmills' the first images are the ones you mention:

The founders of Bushmills developed a recipe that lasts. We hope to do the same with our music.

xpost I don't know when the Edwards comes out, exactly, but I've heard it and have it. It represents a pretty big change, I think, maybe not for the better but I bet better for her.

I guess I should give up my dream of Asking for Flowers Pt. 2

Ew, that ad. Just hangin' with my bros, makin' some music, drinkin' some Bushmills.

I also like the guy a lot though. Not quite my favourite album of the year but it's the one I play when I can't think of what to put on.

I like this second record just fine, but dude sucked the life out of the new Kathleen Edwards.

ok waht. I had no idea he was involved -- or why. He's got more to learn from her.

They are a couple now (she divorced her longtime ... guitarist?). He produces, collaborates and plays a bunch of stuff. And Norah Jones is on the record, too.

The songwriting and melodies are fine. Some of the production choices in regards to mixing levels for certain tracks, what sounds to use and arrangement, seem really random and jarring to me.

guys I don't know if you heard but it's hard to make a living selling records these days

just fyi

Of course aero. I have an aesthetic gripe about that particular ad not an ethical one with Justin taking the money. There are good ads and bad ads.

this album is really fucking good

i will be listening to it a lot this winter

Sure, fine, fair enough, but big money booze strikes me as pretty gnarly to get in bed with. Bushmills' parent company does some pretty heinous lobbying. Not everybody's gotta be Fugazi, but sheesh.

Besides - he seems to be doing just fine selling records (and selling out multi-night stands at very big venues) all over the place.

(I know, it's all pretty tiresome to get into. This one just bummed me out a little bit, between the gross press release speak, the bro-out vibe, and the fact that admittedly this time it's a dude I kind of like).

At least in the one in my neighborhood, he's wearing a Jagjaguar shirt and giving those guys some exposure.

didn't he give "those guys" some exposure when he released his very successful albums on jagjaguwar?

Yeah, I suppose so. I guess I thought it was a cool gesture, since I've always thought of it as a little American label, and seeing it on a huge billboard by the A4 motorway is pretty insane. (He's on a different label here in the UK, btw).
Wait, why did you put "those guys" in quotes?

She Got the Shakes, Friday, 28 October 2011 23:53 (five years ago) Permalink

i guess it just read weird, like that's his label, your post made it seemed like he was coming down off the mountain to give some little label props...

i guess it's probably pretty small, but i guess these days it doesn't much matter.

anyway i didn't mean to phrase it unduly snarky, but i guess i think of him as the big jagjaguwar artist (rip the wilderness)

the 500 gats of bartholomew thuggins (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Friday, 28 October 2011 23:55 (five years ago) Permalink

Ah, I see - I didn't mean it that way. I suppose I admire 'label pride,' though I have no idea what that is based on and can come up with no examples outside of the Nick Lowe tune! Maybe Tad wearing the Sub Pop "Loser" tee? (Reaching...)
He's on 4AD here.

Nothing like religion to ruin a perfectly good song; although it would've been nice to see a pit form when they kicked it into "Oh, Night Divine".

Bizarre S Carey packaging question: the CD packaging looks like it has space for two things - a CD and a booklet, I suppose; possibly two CDs - should it come with a booklet or is it just a packaging quirk?

Bon Iver: Band to Release First Album in 5 Years, Titled '22, A Million'

So, I'm the guy who's never liked Bon Iver, but who thinks the two new tracks sound pretty brilliant.

Lucid Vanguard started as a music sharing process between Karl Remus and Warren Thomas Fenzi. Feeding and flowing off each other, they share many aspects of the songwriting process. To bracket them in one genre is to do them a disservice. Thoughtful vocals infused with neo-soul, world music and R&B beats. Borrowing from the method of Bon Iver and the dissolving of the ego that often comes with the singer/songwriter denotations, this band seeks a higher musical consciousness through what they create. What can be said for sure is that what Lucid Vanguard has released so far gives us a taste of the beautiful future for sound they are currently crafting.

haven't heard it yet (i don't think they have either), nor are they in the touring band. sounds like the recording was a cool experience though.

sam jax sax jam (Jordan), Wednesday, 17 August 2016 16:24 (three months ago) Permalink

I looked at the trackless, and it sounds like there's a bunch of sax on it. The whole project seems weird, but I love it so far, and I did not expect that.

33 God is pretty good. the main things different from the last album are the programmed drums & samples floating about. the 80s soft rock at the core of these are basically what the last album was

Not my thing, these two new tracks. Perhaps in the context of an album I'll enjoy them more. I remember loving the first single off the s/t and then disliking the record a great deal, so heh, who knows.

Second LP left me completely cold; two listens thru the new one and I'm utterly blown away. One of the freshest approaches to music I've heard in some time.
