sufjan stevens - sister winter

Oh my friends I've
Begun to worry right
Where I should be grateful
I should be satisfied

Oh my heart I
Would clap and dance in place
With my friends I have so
Much pleasure to embrace

But my heart is
Returned to sister winter
But my heart is
As cold as ice

Oh my thoughts I
Return to summertime
When I kissed your ankle
I kissed you through the night

All my gifts I gave everything you
Your strange imagination
You threw it all away

Now my heart is
Returned to sister winter
Now my heart is
As cold as ice

All my friends, I've
Returned to sister winter
All my friends, I
Apologise, apologise

All my friends, I've
Returned to sister winter
All my friends, I
Apologise, apologise

All my friends, I've
Returned to sister winter
All my friends, I
Apologise, apologise

La la la la la . . .

And my friends, I've
Returned to wish you all the best
And my friends, I've
Returned to wish you all the best
And my friends, I've
Returned to wish you all the best
And my friends, I've
Returned to wish you a happy Christmas

To wish you a happy Christmas
To wish you a happy Christmas
To wish you a happy Christmas

Sufjan Stevens - That Was The Worst Christmas Ever!

Sufjan Stevens - That Was The Worst Christmas Ever!

Going outside
Shoveling snow in the driveway, driveway
Taking our shoes
Riding a sled down the hillside, hillside
Can you say what you want?
Can you say what you want to be?
Can you be what you want?
Can you be what you want?

Our father yells
Throwing gifts in the wood stove, wood stove
My sister runs away
Taking her books to the schoolyard, schoolyard
In time the snow will rise
In time the snow will rise
In time the Lord will rise
In time the Lord will rise

Silent night
Holy night
Silent night
Nothing feels right

Bishop Allen - Like Castanets

This city is silver in the moon
And mountains heaped with sugar spoons
The click and clatter of my feet
On lonely crooked cobbled streets
Like castanets

Down past the window shutter tie
The hollow of a haunted night
It's raining now out on the beach
The chit and chatter of my teeth
Like Castanets

I'm following the coffee trail
And drink it black and by the bail
The pesos turn to paper cups
My fingers tremble at the touch
Like castanets


Santa Lucia
...Bella vista

San Cristobal

La Moneda


And on the cable car I climb
Up to the sacred virgin shrine
This city's smothered in the smog
The snippy snap of wild dogs
Like Castanets

Tomorrow is Assumption Day
I ask them what they celebrate
Daniello says he can't explain
But he'll be clappin' anyway
Like Castanets

Ohh...Like Castanets

Bishop Allen at SXSW Music 2009 - click, click, click

I had ducked out of the rain
Into Maria's wedding day
And I sat there with her friends
And with her family
And I was happy

I wasn't someone they'd invite
Because I didn't know the groom
Or know the bride
But when I stood next to her brother
For the photograph
He was laughing

Take another picture with your click, click, click, click camera

Sure, I've got pictures of my own
Of the people and the places that I've known
Here's one: I'm carrying your suitcase
Outside of Alphabet City

But in someone else's life
Where Maria is a wife
I'm on the mantle in the corner of the photograph
Smiling pretty

Take another picture with your click, click, click, click camera

Are you tired of where you've gone?
And you think you might belong
In a moment when you step out of the rain?
And you've ended up in someone else's frame?
And they're memory now is never quite the same
And they never even thought to ask your name

Take another picture with your click, click, click, click camera

Rinocerose - Cubicle

Hoy voy a ir al concierto de Rinocerose en la Riviera.

Me apetece un montón porque la última vez que les ví en directo en el Santander Summer Festival de 2006, me lo pasé como un enano. De esas extrañas ocasiones que uno se pasa bailando todo un concierto.


Me lo pasé genial.

Y hoy creo que me lo voy a pasar también de miedo.

Long as you let me in your bed!

Devendra Banhart - At the Hop (danny and the juniors cover)

Devendra Banhart (nacido 30 de mayo de 1981) es un músico estadounidense criado en Caracas, Venezuela desde 1983 a 1996.

En 1998 comienza a estudiar en el San Francisco Art Institute. En el año 2000, decepcionado de sus obligaciones académicas y las restricciones del medio, abandona la escuela de arte y se muda a París, Francia. Sus primeras grabaciones fueron hechas en un equipo grabador de cuatro pistas (four-tracks) y un contestador telefónico. En este país es descubierto por el dueño de un local, quien de inmediato lo escoge para tocar en su show de indie rock. En otoño del mismo año vuelve a Estados Unidos comenzando su deambular artístico, alternando entre San Francisco y Los Ángeles, tocando en diversos lugares.

Un día mientras efectuaba una prueba de sonido, en un concierto en los suburbios de Los Ángeles, casualmente lo escucha Siobhan Duffy, conocedora de los géneros musicales bluegrass y folk, además de ser una amiga de Michael Gira, quien fuese uno de los líderes del Gloom Rock de Nueva York y dueño actual de Young God Records. Devendra Banhart obsequió un disco con sus canciones a Duffy, y ésta sorprendida por su descubrimiento le envío el disco a Gira, quien tuvo la misma reacción.

Los primeros discos de Devendra fueron lanzados por el sello Young God Records de Nueva York. Su último álbum fue lanzado por XL Recordings. La banda completa que acompaña a Banhart en sus grabaciones y conciertos se hace llama Power Mineral (entre otros nombres) y está compuesta por Andy Cabic, Otto Hauser, Nick Castro, Kevin Barker, Noah Georgeson, Luckey Remington, y Pete Newsom. Devendra Banhart también es miembro temporal del grupo Vetiver.

Su última pareja sentimental fue la actriz Natalie Portman, de quien se separó poco después.

En la música de Banhart se encuentran estilos híbridos como el Psych Folk, New Weird America, Freak Folk, entre otros. Estilos que pasan de fusiones a reducciones de Folk, Bluegrass, Rock psicodélico, Latina,LO-FI, y la llamada reactualización Trovadoresca

Devendra Banhart surge en el año 2002 como plena manifestación decadentista-postmoderna que fluctúa globalizada por series de intertextos que se transgreden y conectan: Naif, Bucolismo, Naturalismo, Misticismo, entre otros. Retrae la imaginería mística del periodo Hippie, desde una nueva perspectiva, bajo un nuevo contexto

La música de Devendra Banhart se caracteriza por el uso de simples melodías de guitarra con un acompañamiento mínimo de otros instrumentos. Sus letras son generalmente surrealistas y naturalistas. Existen en su continencia lírica un sinnúmero de referencias hacia escenas búcolicas, mantras y escenas populares. Todas depuradas por una ambigüedad, que va de la ingenuidad neohippie a la ironía postmoderna.

Devendra Banhart - Carmensita

The first video from Devendra Banhart's latest album, Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon.

Sorry for disabling comments, but I don't have the time to filter all the spam.

FAQ:
- Yes, it's Natalie Portman
- He was born in Texas and raised in Venezuela
- Yes, the song is in Spanish

heard somebody say - Devendra Banhart

Este finde voy a ver el mar!!!

Baby Shambles - La belle et la bête

Posiblemente uno de los mejores temas de baby Shambles

I am kloot - From your favorite sky

Do you dare, Take a breath
Do you dream of a tragic death
I know you do
Do you wail, do you weep
Do you sing yourself to sleep
You delicate flower

And so what is love? And who am I?
To dare to pull the stars from your favourite sky
i am kloot - from your favorite sky

You were born, Forced from joy
You're every girl and boy
you know you are, you know you are
And you dress, Like a dame
And you burn on a catholic flame
By the hours, by the hours

And so what is love? And who am I?
To dare to pull the stars from your favourite sky

You possess, s'avoir faire
Put cheap bleach on your hair
You know you do, You know you do
Do you dare, Take a breath
Do you dream of a tragic death
You delicate flower

And so what is love? And who am I?
To dare to pull the stars from your favourite sky
And so what is love? And who am I?
To dare to pull the stars from your favourite sky

Lambchop - Slipped, dissolved and loosed

lambchop - is a woman

LAMBCHOP - IS A WOMAN

In the hour of the girl
You can make this danger witness
Or whatever, without your heart
You can wish you could relate
If it's always gonna be
Sit beside me on a star
If you wake me up tonight

So you try to make it whole
With everybody here
More than a sony
To make the words throw up
Or show me the way
As they pick me up again
They will be there on the couch
They will make you better still
(can you be sure?)

Of anything you make
Maybe you can get a whiff
It's enough to make you gag
It's enough to make you sick
Each and every day
With the concrete and the masonry
When the paint that's on is dry
You can work it from your eye

And you take it from my heart
As you stand alone forever

From the roaming and the surf
And the cloudy cloudy day
Just a boss thing that is pure
Something specially for you
It's like everybody's needing it
And everybody's sure

(and if they say)
Is a woman, write this down
Put the paper, over there
More than it is
No more than it is

Bonnie Prince Billy - strange form of life (from The Letting Go)

a strange form of life
kicking through windows
rolling on yards

heading in loved ones' triggering eyes
a strange one

and a hard way to come into a cabin
into the weather
into a path
walking together
a hard one

and the softest lips ever
25 years of waiting to kiss them
smiling and waiting
to bend down and kiss twice
the softest lips

in a dark little room
across the nation
you found myself racing
forgetting the strange and the hard
and the soft kiss
in the dark room

and a strange form of life
kicking through windows
rolling on yards

heading in loved ones' triggering eyes
a strange one

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy-I called you back

And I called you back, to a place beside me.
And I called you back, to a place beside me.
Love found us easily, and if that's all we have you will find we need nothing more.
And I called you back, to a place beside me.
And I called you back, to a place beside me.
And every time we kiss, we find ourselves in love again.
And the older that we get, we know that nothing else for us is possible.
And I called you back, to a place beside me.
And I called you back, to a place beside me.
And I was quiet, well I heard your voice in everything.
And I called you back, to the place beside me.
And I called you back, to a place beside me.
And I called you back, to a place beside me.

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy - Lay and Love video

From what I've seen, you're magnificent
You fight evil with all you do
Your every act is spectacular
It makes me lay here and love you

From what I hear, you are generous
You make sunshine and glory too
When you walk in things go luminous
It makes me lay here and love you

From what I know, you're terrified
You have mistrust running through you
Your smile is hiding something hurtful
It makes me lay here and love you

It makes me lay here and love you
I'm filled with violet and red and blue
I've got a feeling from what I do
That you might lay there and love me too

Bonnie Prince Billy - Love comes to me

When the numbers get so high
Of the dead flying through the sky
O, I don't know why
Love comes to me
Love comes to me

When your mouth is laying ope
Head knocked back you don't cope
You're out of rings and flowers and soap
Love comes to me
Love comes to me

Love comes to me
Love comes and all
It's my hands, my heart, my lips
And that is all

When the fever hits on your forehead
And trusive mice chew up your bed
And you call on God and God is dead
Love comes to you
Love comes to you

O, sugar won't you be my only
I'm a hard-hearted honey-pot hungry shepherd
And I'm longing to be born for you, that's her

Love comes to you
Love comes and all
It's your hands, your heart, your lip
And that is all

In the night time when you feel me
And the backs of your knees conceal me
And your eyeballs unreal me
Love comes to me
Love comes to me

Nine Inch Nails - Hurt: (Live)

Nine Inch Nails - Hurt

I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing that's real
The needle tears a hole
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything

What have I become?
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
Goes away in the end
You could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

I wear this crown of shit
Upon my liar's chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear
You are someone else
I am still right here

What have I become?
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
Goes away in the end

You could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt
If I could start again
A million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way


JULIE PEEL - inocence







Julie Peel - Innocence
Otro tema del disco NEAR THE SUN, de JULIE PEEL

JULIE PEEL - ALONE





























julie peel - alone
La primera vez que escuché a JULIE PEEL, fue en un disco tributo a The Cure, interpretando una versión del tema A NIGHT LIKE THIS. Y entre que me encantan los cure, y en concreto este tema me fascina, me sentí atraido por la música de esta solista.
Tras buscar por internet logré ir poco a poco descubriendo la música de julie peel que me encantaría ver en directo.

JULIE PEEL - ALONE

JULIE PEEL




JULIE PEEL
Hay discos que es una delicia escuchar y que alegran la vida. Este es el caso, al menos para mi, del disco de presentación de JULIE PEEL, llamado NEAR THE SUN.
Si hubiera podido, me habría ido a New York a ver el concierto donde julie peel presentaba en público sus nuevas canciones
Julie peel - unfold
I walk these streets and I think of you all along
I can feel you still but your love is gone I know
And I feel Lost
Just like I´ve never been before
I can´t unfold and my dreams are all gone and buried
My eyes are shredding tears
the noises are filling my ears as I go
You didn´t say a thing
you just look at me and I knew
Now I feel lost
lost like I´ve never been before
I can´t unfold and my dreams are all blown and buried
Yeah I feel lost
lost like I´ve never been before
I can´t unfold and my dreams are all blown and buried

Sad, Sad Song by M. Ward (w/ Lyrics)

Es lunes, otoño y hace un día genial.....

The Mountain Goats - No Children

I hope that our few remaining friends
Give up on trying to save us
I hope we come out with a fail-safe plot
To piss off the dumb few that forgave us

I hope the fences we mended
Fall down beneath their own weight
And I hope we hang on past the last exit
I hope it's already too late

And I hope the junkyard a few blocks from here
Someday burns down
And I hope the rising black smoke carries me far away
And I never come back to this town again in my life

I hope I lie
And tell everyone you were a good wife
And I hope you die
I hope we both die

I hope I cut myself shaving tomorrow
I hope it bleeds all day long
Our friends say it's darkest before the sun rises
We're pretty sure they're all wrong

I hope it stays dark forever
I hope the worst isn't over
And I hope you blink before I do
And I hope I never get sober

And I hope when you think of me years down the line
You can't find one good thing to say
And I'd hope that if I found the strength to walk out
You'd stay the hell out of my way

I am drowning
There is no sign of land
You are coming down with me
Hand in unlovable hand

And I hope you die
I hope we both die

ATHLETE - WIRES

ATHLETE - WIRES

You got wires, going in
You got wires, coming out of your skin
You got tears, making tracks
I got tears, that are scared of the facts

Running, down corridors through, automatic doors
Got to get to you, got to see this through
I see hope is here, in a plastic box
I've seen christmas lights, reflect in your eyes

You got wires, going in
You got wires, coming out of your skin
There's dry blood, on your wrist
Your dry blood on my fingertip

Running, down corridoors through, automatic doors
Got to get to you, got to see this through
First night of your life, curled up on your own
Looking at you now, you would never know

I see it in your eyes, I see it in your eyes
You'll be alright
I see it in your eyes, I see it in your eyes
You'll be alright

Alright

Running, down corridors through, automatic doors
Got to get to you, got to see this through
I see hope is here, in a plastic box
I've seen christmas lights, reflect in your eyes
down corridors, through automatic doors
Got to get to you, got to see this through
First night of your life, curled up on your own
Looking at you now, you would never know.

Mew - Comforting Sounds

MEW - COMFORTING SOUNDS

I don't feel alright in spite of these comforting sounds you make.
I don't feel alright because you make promises that you break.
Into your house, why don't we share our solitude?
Nothing is pure anymore but solitude.
It's hard to make sense, feels as if I'm sensing you through a lens.
If someone else comes, I'd just sit here listening to the drums.
Previously I never called it solitude.
And probably you know all the dirty shows I've put on.
Blunted and exhausted like anyone.
Honestly I tried to avoid it.
Honestly.
Back when we were kids, we would always know when to stiop.
And now all the good kids are messing up.
Nobody has gained or accomplished anything

April March - Tu mens (Paris in April)

From the album `Paris in April´ (1995)


Chaque fois que nous nous promenons
Et que tu m'regardes à ta façon
T'oublies que tout les copains me disent bien souvent
Que tu n'es pas fidèle et que tu mens
Oh oh oh oui, que tu mens

Je sais qu'un jour nous nous quitterons
Mais pour le moment nous nous aimons
Tes baisers n'ont pas encore le goût de l'adieu
Et si c'est vrai préfère encore fermer les yeux
Oh oh oh oui, si tu mens

Tout ce qu'ils me disent ne me touche pas
Quand je suis dans tes bras, oh yeah
Je crois ce que tu m'dis quand tu me fais les yeux doux

Ils disent que tu joue avec mon coeur
Et que bientôt tu partiras ailleurs
Mais pour le moment je n'ai aucune envie
De te demander si tu m'a mentis
Oh oh oh oui, si tu voulais

Tout ce qu'ils me disent ne me touche pas
Quand je suis dans tes bras, oh yeah
Je crois ce que tu m'dis quand tu me fais les yeux doux

Non je ne veux pas les écouter
Même si bientôt je dois regretter
Mais pour le moment moi je veux profiter
De cet amour et ne pas me demander
Oh oh oh oui, si tu mens

Oh oui
Regardes toi
Si tu mens
Regardes toi
Si tu mens
Si tu mens
Oh oui
Oh no no no no ...

Elliott Smith - Care of Cell 44 (Zombies cover)

Elliot Smith siempre me ha fascinado, y su música me parece genial. Además interpretó versiones geniales, como ésta de los Zombies.

East River Pipe - Helmet On

East River Pipe, es de esos grupos que se me habían escapado. De los que tenía varias canciones descargadas de su web y que no había escuchado suficiente. Uan pena, porque es precisamente algo que me disgusta, el descargar y no escuchar. Estoy en contra de la acumulación que me parece algo absurdo pero que desde que existe el -ipod abunda mucho.

Pero bueno, nunca es tarde si la dicha es buena.

the national - Blank Slate

La verdad es que me flipan las animaciones y esta en concreto me parece muy buena, acompañada además de un tema de THE NATIONAL.

The Unbelievable Truth: Ciao My Shining Star Cover

Ciao, my shining star
Was all it took
To bring on the look you love so much
Well, I flipped out on Henry
And the note you left behind
So rough and unkind
But not from you
And I was making a wish
That you will really miss

You have taken my advantage away
Miss popcorn I must say
You take a little stumble here
Thats understandable my dear
But you just sleep right through it all

We were gonna always get around a lot
Until I bumped into you
And now you just keep on bumping me back
Well thats a big hat you have there
And I have a great big head
So empty inside
But for my thoughts of you

And I was making a wish
That you will really miss
You have taken my advantage away
Miss popcorn I must say
You take a little stumble here
Thats understandable my dear
But you can sleep right through it all

Wasn't that significant?
It was the very first time
??
That big fat fisherman ??
Fishing for a fish
And I was making a wish
That you will yeah you will
That you will miss

I was making a wish
That you will really miss
You have taken my advantage away
Miss Popcorn I must say
You took a little stumble
Well that's understandable my dear
But you can sleep right through it all

You have taken my advantage
Miss Popcorn I must say
You take a little stumble here
Well that's understandable my dear
But you can sleep right through it all
Sleep right through it all
Sleep right through it all...

bon iver - skinny love

Come on skinny love just last the year
Pour a little salt we were never here
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Staring at the sink of blood and crushed veneer

I tell my love to wreck it all
Cut out all the ropes and let me fall
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Right in the moment this order's tall

I told you to be patient
I told you to be fine
I told you to be balanced
I told you to be kind
In the morning I'll be with you
But it will be a different "kind"
I'll be holding all the tickets
And you'll be owning all the fines

Come on skinny love what happened here
Suckle on the hope in lite brassiere
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Sullen load is full; so slow on the split

I told you to be patient
I told you to be fine
I told you to be balanced
I told you to be kind
Now all your love is wasted?
Then who the hell was I?
Now I'm breaking at the britches
And at the end of all your lines

Who will love you?
Who will fight?
Who will fall far behind?

Her Space Holiday - Tech Romance

I'm sick of seeing you cry
And wasting all your time
On someone who will never care enough
To make you feel loved
To make you feel safe
I would drop my life to take his place
To show you just how good
Being touched could be
Commit these words to memory
For when you find yourself
Pinned under his demands
I am still an option that you have
So carry me around
Like a picture in your purse
Pull me out when things are at their worst
You can show up at my house
Completely unannounced
We'll have that movie kiss we talked about
Where there are no words
Just a soft and gentle score
Our ears will ring from all the strings
We'll let the screen go black
And watch the credits run
And see the names of every one
Who we ever met
And who we ever missed
Each one had a role in this
It's just another film that won't get made
I'm sick of seeing you cry

Her Space Holiday - The Past Presents the Future (w/ lyrics)

When I think about the world and how big it can seem I know I can get through it all with my best friend right next to me we started out as little kids and watched each other grow and anywhere I went with you I felt like i was home we won't worry about our future or fret about our past we'll enjoy our time together knowing that this quietness will last

When I think about my family and how much they've endured I want to wrap them in my arms and keep them safe and warm but they would never know this because I'm so far removed fixated on my bloodline I adopted my excuse it wasn't on the radio or on some TV show I used it for survival I'm learning how to slowly let it go

When I think about my enemies and all the time we waste suiting up in armor for the battle that we waged I want to pull my t shirt off and wave it in their face and yell out I surrender I no longer have the strength so let's rip up all the score cards and call the game a tie we'll both become the winners and walk away with a little peace of mind

When I think about my history a collection of events filled with important characters who mostly came and went regret is like a bill unpaid it controls your every move if you throw it into the violent see it will always come right back to you the past presents the future take your hands from your eyes so you can wave to all the people as you roll through whats left of your life

Good night to you
I'm going home

Her Space Holiday - Pass It On

From the new Playstation 3 Network commercial. Pass It On by Her Space Holiday will be on their new EP Boys and Girls coming out in 2009.

Verse 1

We start each day off the same
With every click of the clock, our world continues to move and change/
You can see it on the face of every person that we meet
Things just keep multiplying from house to house from street to street/
We cover the city with a simple 3 chorus song
And on the count of 3, we let our voices ring out/

Chorus

Verse 2

Let's take tomorrow at a much, much slower pace
With a little rest and a rise, a gentle smile, and a wave/
That we'll pass along to every person that we meet
From the quietest humble soul, to the noisiest petty thief/
We'll start our holiday with a simple 3 chorus song
By the time the sun goes down, it will be a full blown orchestra/

Chorus

End verse X3

Every day's different, and nothing stays the same
We gotta keep it movin', We gotta find a way/
Pick up all the pieces and cutting out the haste
There's not a lot of time for you and I to waste/

Lydia- Her Space Holiday

you and me and a black heart

You and me
we like to talk about that summer night
you came over to my house and I
sat there while you told me everything
all of your ups and downs
and in betweens
and i just thought to myself
and i just thought
to myself
"how can so much good exist in such a tiny heart
and despite of all the pain she's in,
she never falls apart"
And if she doesn't last the length of seven songs
She dries her tears on her best friend's sleeves and dances right along

In a dream
You call me up and ask me, quietly,
If I would like to meet you for a drink
And when I got there you just looked at me
As you spoke to yourself
"If you take me home tonight
I know that we will kiss
One of us will fall in love
And it will be a mess
But if you want to take that chance
then please just let me know"
I slammed my glass down on the bar
said "grab your coat let's go"

so here we are

we've gone too far

And I just thought to myself
How can so much good
Exist in such a tiny heart
Despite of all the pain she's in
She never falls apart
And if she doesn't last the length of seven songs
She dries her tears on her best friend's sleeves and dances right along

Una canción de amor muy bonita.

Mountain Goats cover "Drug Life"

The Shins - Plenty is Never Enough (Tenement Halls cover)

Siguiendo con versiones .....

Bright Eyes - Papa Was a Rodeo (magnetic fields cover)

Otra versión realmente impresionante

The National and St. Vincent - Sleep All Summer (Crooked Fingers Cover)

Crooked Fingers siempre me fascinaron, asi como The National. Por lo que una versión de un tema de Crooked fingers interpretado por The National y con la colaboración de la voz de St. Vincent.

Muse - House of the Rising Sun

NO ONE knows who wrote House of the Rising Sun.
No, it wasn't the animals nor bob dylan.
It's much older than that.
The Animals version is considered definitive and I myself consider it to be the best.

Pink Floyd did not cover it. Thats a Floyd cover band called Frijid Pink.

muse - feeling good (nina simone cover)

Posiblemente me guste más esta otra versión interpretada por MUSE, pero la verdad es que depende ´más del día de la semana o de como me encuentre...

Me parece un mensaje muy positivo, sobre todo para enmpezar la semana con energía.



My Brightest Diamond - Feelin' Good (Nina Simone) live in SF

El que alguna vez se haya acercado por aqui sabrá de mi afición a las versiones.

esta versión de Nina Simone interpretada por My Brighest Diamond me parece genial.

También me parece genial la de MUSE de este mismo tema

Sufjan Stevens - You Are the Blood (CASTANETS COVER)

Una versión impresionante!!!!!

The National - So Far Around The Bend

I know you're a serious lady
Living off a teacup full of cherries
Nobody knows where you are livin
Nobody knows where you are

Take a bath and get high through an apple
Wanted to cry but you cant when you're laughin
Nobody knows where you are livin
Nobody knows where you are

You're so far around the bend
You're so far around the bend

Ill run through a thousand parties
Ive run through a million bars
Nobody knows where you are livin
Nobody knows where you are

You've been humming in a daze forever
Praying for Pavement to get back together
Nobody knows where you are living
Nobody knows where you are

You're so far around the bend
You're so far around the bend

Now there's no leaving New York
Now there's no leaving New York

You're so far around the bend
You're so far around the bend

Now there's no leaving New York
Now there's no leaving New York
Now there's no leaving New York
Now there's no leaving New York

Brand New 'The National' Song on Q TV

Aqui tenemos un tema nuevo del próximo disco de THE NATIONAL.

No sé como se llama, pero si he conseguido la letra:

there's no saving anything.
now i'm swallowing the shine of the sun.
there's no saving anything.
from the shine of the sun.
no i won't be no runaway
cause i won't run
no i won't be no runaway
what makes you think i enjoy being led to the flood.
we've got another thing coming undone.
it's taking us over
we don't bleed when we don't fight
go ahead, go ahead
throw your arms in the air tonight
we don't bleed when we don't fight
go ahead go ahead
lose your shirts in the fire tonight...

The National - Apartment Story (Live, acoustic)

Un temazo en una interpretación genial, en versión acíústica.

Un delicia para los oidos y una forma de ocupar el puesto de trabajo con ,mejor estado de ánimo

Feliz Semana

EEF BARZELAY

Eef Barzelay, músico estadounidense cuyas melódicas y profundas canciones forman parte del denominado country alternativo: una música que escarba en las profundidades de la cultura de EEUU, pero con una particular forma de transmitirlo. Tras formar parte de Clem Snide, una de las bandas musicales estadounidenses más significativas del movimiento indie actual, y cuyo nombre se lo tomaron prestado a uno de los personajes de "El almuerzo desnudo", de William Burroughs, Eef Barzelay nos habla de sus orígenes, de su forma de componer o de sus constantes actuaciones en España. Nos encontramos con su música en el Aulario de la Bomba, de la Universidad de Cádiz

Eef barzelay let us be naked

Life's the most tender illusion
my hands, they'll cover your eyes
breathe and you'll put out the fire
in forests of where we will hide
and the trees clap their hands as we enter
and put flowers into your hair
the shadows will let us be naked
what's under that rock
don't be scared
life's the most tender illusion
close your eyes and you'll see
nothing is real since you've kissed me
afloating away we shall be

why can´t i touch it- clem snide

La verdad es que clem snide, me encanta!!!

Wire: Outdoor Miner

Cuando el rock es un arte
30 años de punk intelectual contemplan a los británicos Wire, que encabezan el festival Monkey Week



WIRE | Cuándo: Miércoles 7 en Barcelona (La 2), Jueves 8 en Madrid (Ramdall) y Viernes 9 en el Puerto de Sta. María, cádiz (Festival Monkey Week) | Cuánto: 18 euros


DAVID SAAVEDRA



Wire

Entre 1977 y 1979, los londinenses Wire sentaron las bases del post-punk desde el mismo centro de la cultura punk.

'Pink Flag', 'Chairs Missing' y '154' fue esa trilogía inicial de álbumes a cargo de cuatro estudiantes de Diseño y Bellas Artes dispuestos a tomar la composición de canciones como si se tratase de piezas artísticas, bajo un método muy minimalista, y con letras concebidas como un juego que, a su vez, mostraban una realidad fracturada.

En estos 32 años, aun con varias interrupciones, la banda ha seguido activa y ha trazado una trayectoria siempre insobornable, siempre inquieta, que ha dado lugar a once álbumes.

El último de ellos, 'Object 47', es el que presentan esta semana en España y la mejor prueba de que no estamos ante un regreso nostálgico como el de tantos otros compañeros de generación.

"Es una ventaja con la que contamos", afirma Newman, vocalista y guitarra. "A la gente le gusta tanto el material antiguo como el nuevo, y canciones como 'One Of Us' obtienen a menudo una de las mejores reacciones en los conciertos actuales. Es una situación muy gratificante, pero tampoco quiere decir que no nos lo hayamos trabajado. Siempre nos ha gustado ponernos en situaciones difíciles e incómodas cuando podríamos haber tomado el camino fácil".

En la última década, además, Wire se ha potenciado como banda en directo. El bajista Graham Lewis recalca que, en el último lustro, han tocado más que en cualquier otro período en la historia del grupo, idea que completa Newman: "Nos hemos desarrollado como una formación en vivo realmente potente. En los 70 y los 80 tuvimos nuestros momentos en el escenario, pero la interpretación nunca fue tan central en la banda como es ahora".

La principal novedad en esta gira es la ausencia del guitarrista Bruce Gilbert, sobre cuyo abandono nunca se esparcieron demasiados detalles: "Había un montón de problemas alrededor del grupo antes de grabar 'Object 47', además de asuntos personales, así que decidió dejarlo", afirma Lewis.

Su sustituta en esta gira es ni más ni menos que Margaret Fiedler, componente del grupo de culto Laika, aunque, como apunta Newman, su verdadera razón para reclutarla fue "recordar que había estado 18 meses en la carretera como guitarrista con PJ Harvey. Necesitábamos a alguien que pudiese caminar por la delicada línea de ser parte de esto sin ser parte de esto, y ella lo hace perfectamente". "Se ha adaptado genial a la forma de tocar de Wire", completa el bajista, además de señalar que en sus conciertos hacen un repaso por toda la historia del grupo, con una paleta sonora más amplia que la mostrada en sus anteriores visitas a España en 2003 y 2004, en la gira del álbum Send.

"Era un repertorio de tempo rápido: poca melodía, no canciones, no prisioneros y el máximo asalto sónico todo el tiempo. Nos asegurábamos de no provocar indiferencia y sonaba como una gran guitarra atiborrada de esteroides. La gira actual -concluye- tiene horizontes más amplios y una mayor profundidad emocional... además de esa agresividad".

Mando Diao - Long Before Rock'n'Roll Live Grammisgalan 2007

Con Mando diao es uno de esos grupos que me pasó su discografia un amigo,. y que borre prácticamente si escuchar porque les di una pasada alguno de sus temas y nmo me dijo nada.

Es de esos errores que se cometen cuando te graban música a cascoporro que npo te da tiempo a asimilar.

Posteriormente corregí el error gracias a un podcast de spin

Pavement - Zurich Is Stained

ZURICH IS STAINED

I can't sing it strong enough

it's that kind of strength I just don't have

if you watch the lights change

don't hold them hanging

you think it's easy, but you're wrong

I'm not one half of the problem

Zurich is stained and it's not my fault

just hold me back or let me run

so what does it mean, a mistake or two

if it's the kind of mistake no one can trace

to the fountain where we sold it

and held them hanging

you think it's easy, but you're wrong

I'm not one half of the problem

Zurich is stained and it's not my fault

just hold me back or let me run

you think it's easy, but you're wrong

I'm not one half of the problem

Zurich is stained and it's not my fault

just hold me back or let me run

Pavement - In the Mouth Of A Desert

IN THE MOUTH OF A DESERT

Can you treat it like an oil well
When its underground, out of sight?
And if the sight is just a whore sign
Can it make enough sense to me?

Pretend the table is a trust knot
Well put our labels down, faith is down
Ill watch some yards of twine unravel
And youll never get it back

Its what I want (its what I want)
Its what I want (twine comes down)
Its what I want (its what I want)
Dont you know, I could make you try
Make you try [3x]

Ive been crowned the king of it, and it is all we have
So wait to hear my words and theyre diamond sharp
I can open it up and its up and down

Its what I want (its what I want)
I see your bag like a little dog [? ](ball of twine)
Dont you know that its what I want (its what I want)
Ill see your bag and it makes you try
Makes you try [3x]

Ive been down, the king of it, is all we have
Ive been down and I could wait to hear the words
Theyre diamond sharp today
