"Before you know it as the years go by, you're just like other people you have seen, with all those peculiar human ailments. Just another vehicle for temper and vanity and rashness and all the rest. Who wants it? Who needs it? These things occupy the place where a man's soul should be." -- Henderson the Rain King

More Music-y Goodness

ChromeWaves has a nice write up on the re-release of Wilco's A Ghost Is Born featuring 5 bonus tracks. Good to see that the bonus tracks will be available for free download from WilcoWorld for anyone who bought a copy of the original version. The same post also contains a link to a an excellent (MP3) version of Ashes of American Flags from their recent appearance on Austin City Limits.

Speaking of ACL, PureLiveGigs has a link to this torrent of the recent Bright Eyes appearance on the show. The set list includes 3 Bright Eyes songs, a M. Ward song and a Jim James song. If you just can't get enough of M. Ward, AcousticWood has MP3s posted of his July 29th, 2004 show at Cat's Cradle in Carrboro, NC. The set list is especially cool and features covers of songs by David Bowie, Daniel Johnston, Bob Dylan, Elmore James, and Butterglory.

DigitalPanic has a link to this torrent of one of the recent Centro-Matic shows opening for the Drive-By Truckers at the 40 Watt Club in Athens, GA. Centro-Matic = Awesome.

The Coachella Festival line-up has been announced and it looks really strong. Wilco, Weezer, MF Doom, Bright Eyes, Nine Inch Nails, The Arcade Fire, The Fiery Furnaces, etc., etc. Looks pretty sweet if you can stand the heat.

The Seattle Times recently ran a short piece on one of our great local labels Barsuk Records.
