Photos (for Impose): CMJ Day 2

Oh my goodness.  Now that I’ve just gotten home from day 3 of CMJ, day 2 seems like ages ago.  I can hardly remember what happened.  Actually, there was some pretty good stuff, and you can check out my visual record of it over at Impose right here.  I started the day off at Chocolate [...]

Recommended Thursday Show: CMJ Day #3

At least CMJ Thursday is pretty straight-forward during the day.  It’s the I Guess I’m Floating (one of my very favorite blogs) Pianos day party.  It’s pretty much wall-to-wall worthwhile bands including Baths, Beach Fossils, Oberhofer, Teen Daze, Young Man, Braids, and Gobble Gobble. The nighttime gets much more complicated.  Of course, part of this [...]

Recommended Wednesday Show: CMJ Day #2

1AM and I just stepped in for the first time since 10AM this morning.  These festival thingys are pretty exhausting.  Luckily for most everyone, tomorrow has a lot of good shows, but only a few real standouts.  I definitely recommend picking somewhere and staying put, at least as the nighttime is concerned.  If you’re lucky [...]

My Favorite 50 Songs of 2009: 20-11

To recap:  As for My Favorite 50 Songs of 2009, I made a few rules for myself.  First, a band can only appear once.  Also, this is purely about singles I enjoy.  For instance, I would never put Harlem Shakes’ Technicolor Health on my favorite albums list, but “Sunlight” made it pretty high on this list [...]

CMJ: Recommended Saturday Shows

I took last night off.  I fell asleep in front the newest It’s Always Sunny at 10, awoke two hours later to zombie-walk into my bed, and just woke up again a few minutes ago.  This CMJ business is a lot more tiring than I remember it being.  I hope everyone rested up for today, [...]

Hot New Artist: Dent May & His Magnificent Ukulele

  I first heard of/saw Dent May back in October during CMJ.  It was during the Paw Tracks (Animal Collective’s label) showcase at Le Poisson Rouge.  By the time Dent May came on I had listened to about four band’s worth of experimental, nosiy static, and was starting to lose steam quickly.  All of a [...]
