The Cinematic Orchestra: TNP in Seattle

All right, we're back on track, literally. I'll be using fileXoom for the foreseeable future, as 2 Gigs and unlimited bandwidth seems like a pretty good deal for free. If you're blogging in the same spacial vein, definitely consider it. The downside is that all previous posts have to be reloaded, which I'll definitely get on. If there's a particular set you'd like to have, email me or leave a comment. Thanks for hanging in there.

It seems like an eternity ago, but seeing The New Pornographers over the summer really instilled me with an appreciation for live music. As fun as their studio work is, I was really won over by the band when I saw them live. If, for any reason, you aren't familiar with them, I can't recommend checking them out enough. They'll be touring in Australia to close out a year, and their fourth album is tentatively scheduled for the spring. 2007 looks to be a great year for new releases.

I wasn't aware initially, but this set was actually posted by B(oot)log some time ago, and originally aired on KEXP. In any case, it's silly to put an expiration date on good music. Kathyrn Calder of Immaculate Machine sings here instead of Neko, but she does a great job, as usual. There's some pretty funny banter from A.C. Newman as well, including a very...resonant line at the end of the superb "Bleeding Heart Show."
