a few hours after arriving from mexico, i saw luke doucet play at the broadway theater. it was a very good show, though i was disappointed that nothing from "aloha, manitoba" was played.
"There is no mistaking the genuineness of this record. Danchilla never quivers away from his honesty."
3.5/5, favorable review magazine
"It shows a potentially gifted artist who unfortunately here sounds like he has favored rawness instead of polish."
2/5, vilage voice
"I really liked the impromptu sounding instrumental track."
the decisions for my first album are over and exposed, for better or worse.
it's a tough thing to make yourself public and view your innards, but i am proud to have stuck with it, glad to be done, and hope to build on my next album (which i expect will have some digital ambient experimentation on top of the songwriting)
Elliot: Do you still let that inner voice of yours control you?
J.D's narration: This is getting too serious. Kick her, kick her in the head.
J.D.: Not as much.
"Earlier this year Carline and I were walking in Vancouver and I said 'that guy looks like Beck'. And he was wearing crazy clothing and was with the actor Giovanni Ribisi's sister, who he was apparently dating.
Carline without looking replies 'no, totally not him'. So as he just passed us, I said 'let's pretend we forgot something' and walked back after him.
Then Carline looks at him and says 'that is totally him'. And it was apparent that it was him as other people were saying stuff like 'I love your music, gonna see you tomorrow at the Seattle show.'
However, Carline could not help staring at Beck and she kept looking at him creepily until he got obviously nervous and nessled into me. And then he said 'hey man, do you know where burrard is?' And I told him 'about two blocks that way' and he said 'Cool man'.
The kicker, was upon further inspection he was wearing the exact outfit that he did in his ticketmaster advertisements."----------
To this anecdote I give my highest rating, the derek zoolander "cool story, hansel"
Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds - Dig!!! Lazarus Dig!!! (2008)
This album has been a staple of my music collection since it's release in 2008. I think it is one of Nick Cave's best albums. The album is moody and full of lyrical imagery. Dark, trancy at times such as on the track "Night of the Lotus eaters". The lyrics of this album are very strong and is what draws me back to it time and again. The track "Midnight Man" is an absolute gem:
Hold that chrysalis in your palm See it split and change It won't do you any harm It's just trying to rearrange
It was born to live a day Now it flies up from your hand It's beautiful It's the one they call your ever loving man
Wolves have carried your babies away Oh, your kids drip from their teeth The nights are long and the day Is bitter cold beyond belief...
...Close your eyes, sleep in him Dream of your lost sons and daughters Me, I'll raise up my dorsal fin And glide up and down the waters
The closing track "More news from nowhere" though just under eight minutes could go sixteen and I would be quite happy to listen to it all.
