Burnzy, glad you liked.  I had no idea that his last name was pronounced ‘Davis’. 

Dzimas, I was thinking of you this morning.  We just got VH1 Classic, and that glorious waste of time played the video of ELO’s Last Train to London from their Discovery album.  I used to be into them, and I remember some really strong songs on that disc, but it also had a lot of disco influence – and just as disco was falling into disfavor. 

Anybody listen to music podcasts?  I’m a fan of the ones I can find.  I pointed out the All Songs Considered podcast, which I love.  I’ve picked up a lot of new song ideas from them.  In case anybody’s interested, here’s the link to the weekly show as well as the podcast: http://www.npr.org/templates/rundowns/rundown.php?prgId=37&agg=1

I just downloaded this podcast and was pleasantly surprised:  http://www.indiepopradio.co.uk/  Good if you like, well, indie pop.

This podcast is good for those who like music from all over: http://www.songlines.co.uk/  One quibble: too much talking and not enough sampling of music. 

This site has some decent mod-related music: http://modradiouk.podomatic.com/?badge=1 

I’ve mentioned this one before, but of the WFMU podcasts listed here http://wfmu.org/podcast , I listen to the Downtown Soulville one a lot. 

Anybody have music podcast ideas?


Thanks for all the links, grobin.  Listening to Elvis Costello's "First Ten Years." I probably shouldn't say this too loud but I've been cribbing music lately using Torrent.  Was listening to Charlie Gillett the other day.  Has new hours, which is a sigh of relief, as I was afraid his health problems had finally caught up to him.  My wife is realling digging Paul Simon's "Songs from the Capeman," which came in a nice re-issue package with Jose Feliciano on a demo version of "Born In Puerto Rico."  She loves those Puerto Rican rhytms.  Makes her feel like dancing.

My mum loved listening to Eddy Arnold, so I have some fun childhood memories of him, including Make the World Go Away,

Anyone listen to Van Dyke Parks recently?

I've been listening to the Song Cycle.  Wonderfully baroque.

Where does this fit in? Found this connected to the movie reviews nytimes,The Visitor. So, if this is going to be a popular movie, perhaps the thematic can go in here too.

After a good start, everybody doing their thing on the first video, take a look at what happens in the second video.  Should give you some new moves.

My son came up to me today and asked if I had any Alvin Lee.  I was embarrassed to ask who?  Alvin Lee, don't you know Ten Years After?  He had picked up the tabs to "I'm Going Home," as well as showed me Lee's performance on youtube,

It put me into a nostalgic mood for groups like Canned Heat, Humble Pie and Mountain.  Was able to dig up some Humble Pie in the Internet.  I'm constantly amazed how at 14 he picks up on so much of this music.  Big fan of Cream, after I turned him onto Eric Clapton's early years.

MrUtley, there's a somewhat better picture here, if you want to save it:

Anyone else heard of Brett Dennen and found "Darlin, Do Not Fear" -- one of the songs on the list to the right on his page: http://www.myspace.com/brettdennen -- really captures the ear?  Apparently "Ain't No Way" was/is bigger, but I was taken by t'other.  [Also, I confess that I didn't look him up until husband asked me about his song "Blessed" that played on one of those Hilton Hotel point A-to-point B ads, the one with "Pangea"].

Great success story,

Jacob Golden is the latest recipient of the OC golden touch. When the US teen drama broadcast for the final time he became the only unsigned artist to have their music used in the finale.

Personally signed to Chrysalis Publishing by CEO Jeremy Lascelles, the company which gave the world Ray LaMontagne and Bat For Lashes, Jacob has been building a loyal fanbase thanks to tours of intimate "home gigs" in fans' living rooms. The size suits him. He doesn't like recording studios, preferring the natural acoustics of underground car parks, subterranean, concrete art galleries - and his bedroom in Portland, Oregon. "I love the idea of making modern field recordings," he says of his self-penned and self-produced music.

Although I wasn't overly turned on by the music I heard on a BBC episode the other day.  Here's a clip,

And you know the sun's setting fast.
And just like they say nothing good ever lasts.
Well, go on now and kiss it goodbye but hold on to your lover,
'cause your heart's bound to die.
Go on now and say goodbye to our town, to our town.
Can't you see the sun's settin' down on our town, on our town.
Goodnight.
