hardly strictly

Post image for hardly strictly

hardly strictly bluegrass starts today in san francisco!

with one exception – radiohead’s show at outside lands (first ever nighttime show in golden gate park) – this was the most fun i had when i lived in san francisco. the festival takes place each fall in golden gate park, and consists of three days of live music – FOR FREE. those of you who haven’t been to san fran, october is probably the nicest month out there weather wise and there’s really nothing better than spending a weekend lounging on blankets in spectacular golden gate park with a bunch of friends listening to the plucking of guitar strings. this year’s lineup is sick – including t. bone burnett w/ a special appearance by karen elson, jenny and johnny, steve earle, conor oberst, joan baez, trombone shorty, umphrey’s mcgee, the felice brothers, sharon jones and the dap kings, yonder mountain string band, the avett brothers, railroad earth, elvis costello, patti smith, emmylou harris, and many more.

did i mention its FREE??? check out the website here.

I have never been until this year, and I plan to go every year now. I didn't realize how big it was and for something that's free, it's pretty spectacular. It's an overall good time with good people and good music!

The Tallest Man on Earth is playing in Philly Oct. 2nd. You need to be there. He is the closest thing to Bob Dylan - the Bob of our generation. I promise you will fall in love with his music and everything about him. GO GO GO! You won't be sorry! :D

a new deerhunter album is out today! halcyon digest is the band’s first album since “microcastle” in 2008 – which was one of my favorite albums of that year. i used to listen to it on long car drives, blaring out of my speakers with the windows down and heat turned up (since it was winter around this time). it’s the kind of melodic music that sends you into deep thought, or allows you to reflect on thoughts that may already fill your head. also good for dreary days like today…

npr streamed the album prior to its release so i listened to it at work yesterday and found myself completely wrapped up in my own world for its duration. i love it. take a listen to some new songs and let me know what you think!

Post image for have a good weekend, folks!

spent the last couple of hours listening to lcd soundsystem sound-checking next door.  torture, but also pretty cool. tried to sneak onto the tourbus or into the building as they were setting up… and failed.  oh well, happy friday!

AH where can i get those little black booties on the right!?!?
Maria -Sep 26, 2010, 5:06PM
I wish my Friday's looked like that! I have a question about look 4 from the lookbook on the FP website-- I know the jacket/vest is from the Muubaa Convertible Leather Trench Coat, but where can a girl on a budget find something like that?? Would free people make that piece as a separate?! The whole jacket is fabulous and with so many wearable options, well worth the price, just not in my price range...Thank you!!

jenny lewis and her boyfriend johnathan rice have teamed up to record an album, “i’m having fun now”, and it sounds like just that – fun. warm, sunny pop rock is the best way to describe their sound – you may recognize jenny’s voice from rilo kiley, which she fronted.  they’re also just a really cute couple. i remember reading an article in rolling stone a while back about the resurgence of laurel canyon, where some of the greatest music of the 60s was written.  the article talked about how jenny lewis and johnathan rice would hold regular jam sessions at their laurel canyon home, in a style very reminiscent of the 60s –  i thought that was pretty cool. you can definitely sense a little bit of that alternative spirit in some of their songs.

have you guys heard of birdie busch? she’s a philly native whose atmospheric folk music and whimsical voice are starting to gain wider recognition.  her myspace page describes her music as “weird and winding: she sings about magic, luck, the universe, the human heart speeding off on dangerous missions like Inspector Gadget. An intimate partnership with long time band mates has assured that her records are cohesive and remarkably mature, a dreamy Americana too warm to be made in this decade but too grounded and aware to be made anytime else.”

she has just released an EP of four songs inspired by her hometown (philadelphia) called “everyone will take you in” and our music coordinator gave me a copy last week. i was immediately intrigued by the packaging alone, it’s really lovely. it includes vinyl and cd versions of the EP as well as a stack of vintage looking postcards with song lyrics on the back and a letter from birdie explaining the meaning of this project. i wanted to share some photos just because i thought it was so nice!

they’re vagabonds… rock ‘n’ rollers who travel from town to town with their belongings strung across their backs, guitar cases in hand.  the autumn gypsy is a mix of the bohemian hippie with a rocker edge. she spends her days beading jewelry and making necklaces with good luck charms that she gives out to friends and people she meets in her travels.  she reads palms and loses herself in deep thought when the weather shifts a certain way -  as days grow shorter and trees cast long shadows across her path her spirit comes alive, a mischeivious sparkle in her eyes. her friends have gatherings in the woods around bonfires that flicker across the crackling paint of old caravans. they tell stories and play songs into the night, reading poetry by candlelight and looking for patterns in the stars up above.

here’s a playlist of music this trend brought to mind.
