BarbWalters

Feeling a little goofy and a little dancey today, so here's some bouncing post-disco electronic funk from BarbWalters.  "BBROWN" features a Bobby Brown sample and makes me want to groove at a ridiculous party with ridiculous people.  Listen below and get the "Pleasure" cassette here from Business Casual.



Daily Jam - Bama Gettin Money (Diplo Remix)

A friend recently reminded me of this song, noting that i had written about it on the blog years ago, and that it always reminded him of me now.  I can get behind that kind of endorsement.  Featured on the 2011 mixtape "Fear and Loathing in HuntsVegas," Diplo's remix of the Paper Route Gangstaz track "Bama Gettin Money" features a Wham! sample and some southern ghetto verses.  I fucking love it.  Listen below, your Daily Jam...

SXSW 2019 Day 7 Pics

One last day to squeeze some stuff in.  We left the boys with my mom and sister and their cousins and hit up the Big Easy Bar and Grill for some final SXSW goodies, seeing sets from Gong Gong Gong, David Boring, and Cindy Cane.  I also had some crawfish which made me about as happy as anything else could this week.  It's been real SXSW.  I'm gonna attempt to do a real write-up in the next couple of weeks to be published...somewhere...hopefully, and god willing, i'll be back again next year.  Here are my last pics...

Daily Jam - Screams in the Ears

Every year, i end up discovering a whole bunch of old songs, sometime obscure ones, that rank right up there with any of the new stuff i'm excited about.  So far, this year, folk/pop artist Bill Fay's 1970 B-side "Screams in the Ears" is my absolute fave.  Check it out, your Daily Jam...

THYLA

With kids, it's a lot harder to catch most of the Saturday parties during SXSW, as i generally have to scour the area for family friendly events.  Today, the fine folks at Lazarus Brewing were up to the task, and i was able to coerce the boys into going for a short while.  Brighton, England band THYLA were there, and while i don't know if my boys were impressed, i was taken with the band's particular brand of dramatic pop rock.  Listen to "Only Ever" below and be on the lookout for the band's "What's On Your Mind" LP on REX Records.


SXSW 2019 Day 6 Pics

Was not able to get out to see too much today, as has become the norm since becoming a father of two.  And without the usual Waterloo day party going on today, i went to a little kid's birthday party instead.  But then, we made it out to Lazarus Brewing again whose lineups for their day parties this year have been surprisingly good.  Today i caught sets from Japan's DYGL and England's THYLA.  Good stuff, and maybe more importantly, good beer.  Check some pics below.  I've got one more day to see some stuff tomorrow, and then it's all over...

Daily Jam - The Rip

It took 11 years between Portishead's second and third album...which means we're about due for a fourth right?  Anyway, here's "The Rip," a haunting and mysterious song that became one of the band's instant staples, your Daily Jam.

SXSW 2019 Day 5 Pics

Today started off with some bullshit revolving around a child's car seat and my inability to remove it from a car.  It kind of dampened my spirits for much of the day (along with all of the horrible, heartbreaking news coming out of New Zealand), but i still got to see some great music today, this time jumping around from Hotel Vegas to Kitty Cohen's to Waterloo Records.  I could have wandered all over for the rest of the day, but my feet were tired...because i'm old.  Here's some pics...
