    he films the moment The Take Away Shows are often really lovely and intimate almost always with small surprises and little treats that can only happen with the unplanned gentle collision of a band suddenly playing live in public spaces not typically made for such moments Click to watch Phoenix play live outdoors in Paris A perfect case in point are the most recent 4 songs on La Blogotheque featuring the French band Phoenix who sing just about exclusively in English and are perhaps better known outside of their home country than withing their native France In this heart melting set of 4 songs for Take Away Shows or more rightly Les Concerts A Emporter quite possibly my favorite band Phoenix performs 1901 at Trocedero Square close to the Eiffel Tower with lots of passersby simply stopping to get an ear and eyeful of the band There s even a freshly married couple among the gathering crowd and it simply couldn t be more romantic Click to watch Phoenix play live outdoors in Paris Phoenix then moves onto a crowded Parisian tour bus taking seats at the back of the open upper deck and play 2 songs Lisztomania One Time Too Many while the bus and it s happily surprised tourists take a ride through Paris streets The final show is Long Distance Call played beautifully under a stone bridge along the Seine complete with a sweet echos from the pigeon encrusted columns of the bridge My favorite band my favorite city I m done for Basically it s all awesome and you should watch em all Click the images above or here to watch listen as well as read a bit more about each performance Phoenix Click to watch Phoenix play live outdoors in Paris Posted in Stuff I Like What I m listening to Tagged la blogotheque les concerts a emporter live music music blogs paris phoenix

d share this quite cool internet radio station that I found today called Christmas Vinyl When Music Was Music where the only music is Christmas related fare recorded on vinyl I have to say that I sort of love the somewhat cranky implication that music released on vinyl and in vinyl s heyday is better than more recent music There is something to be said for classics and tradition and sticklerhood Beyond that this station Christmas Vinyl is really cool for mixing all sorts of vinyl recordings of Christmas songs from Burl Ives to jazz artists like Bing Crosby or Ella Fitzgerald to lesser known session pop singers as well as instrumentals and choral works Basically if a Christmas song was recorded on vinyl They re up for playing it over there The site itself Christmas Vinyl is only able to handle 500 listeners at a time but Fear not I actually found the site via Shoutcast com Radio and they re listener capacity is much larger Just search for Christmas Vinyl in Shoutcast com s search box when you click here If you do listen to Christmas Vinyl s stream from their website you get an accurate current and upcoming track listing that s pretty handy too Also it s really nice when you can hear little noises that you only get with vinyl Very warm and cozy I m listening to a lovely recording of Louis Armstrong singing Christmas Night In Harlem and not only does it give the phrase all lit up like a Christmas Tree an added meaning it s the jam Posted in Stuff I Like What I m listening to Tagged christmas music christmas songs christmas vinyl christmasvinyl com internet christmas music

s a good time If you read my blog even semi regularly you know that I am a fan of the NPR music show All Songs Considered And while I don t get to listen to every single show you may consider me curating their offerings for you when I post about a show here on my blog Christmas and holiday music is something so ubiquitous as to almost be a joke Either the crushingly sweet songs that you come to expect are blaring at you from all directions from retail stores from Thanksgiving or sooner ugh until practically New Year s or the ironic or what I call trashy Christmas holiday music is thrust out like some sort of cure to the overly sentimental traditional offerings It s not However look the reality is that we all grew up with the experience of music switching from whatever is on the radio to a slew of holiday cheer for a few special weeks a year I still get nostalgic thinking about that inexplicably special day when the Christmas music vinyl records would come out of the catalogue my parents had and the hours that I would pour over their cover art and listen so closely to each note From the Harry Simeone Chorale The Little Drummer Boy collection to the slightly weird and awesome Victoriana throwback A Music Box Christmas by Rita Ford Or the parade of hits from the 1940 s 1980 s that would fill my neighbor s house for 2 or 3 days at a time day night while 3 generations of women made dozens of types of cookies creating a bounty of literally hundreds and hundreds of treats for us all Somehow while being able to laugh at ridiculous songs as well as collecting some really great tunes the All Songs Considered Holiday Music mix isn t smarmy or ironic or jackassed Have I told you that I am completely sick of and over irony as a statement I am It s boring Knock it off It s just good fun and yes ready Jolly There I said it I m listening to it right now as I write this and I m recommending it to all of you Enjoy Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas Click here to listen to

Seattle s KEXP photo by Dan Shultz As a bit of an NPR junkie you might be able to imagine that the musical offshoot NPR Music s All Song Considered is an even bigger addiction for me If you are not familiar with it come on climb out from underneath that rock friend As a designer I m always interested in how things are put together and more specifically as a rock poster designer well of course I listen to what is likely an ungodly amount of music all day and sometimes all night long So the gigantic culling breadth of All Song Considered and it s amazing way of finding and showcasing music bands and process makes it just about one of my favorite stops to park on the web A recent addition to All Song s Considered s list of Studio Sessions site is this live show by the Brooklyn based band Au Revoir Simone at the KEXP studios in Seattle WA Being fans of both the incredible work of KEXP and Au Revoir Simone for quite some time now it was one of those Awww yay moments when I came across it More photos from Au Revoir Simone s live session at KEXP are here on KEXP s Flickr page Hope that you dig it too Posted in Stuff I Like What I m listening to Tagged all songs considered au revoir

installment Finally Parce que c est trés bon Oui the new Phoenix record is out Ahh really I feel like I shouldn t even write and prattle on about this record Instead I just really urge you to listen I mean if mostly all that you dig is Black Metal well you might want to move along to something like Big Business new record And yes I know that Big Business isn t Black Metal don t be rude But if you ve been on board with the previous two new releases of May here get on the bag son Wolfgang Amdeus Phoenix might be my favorite Phoenix record Scratch that it is my favorite Again like the previous two records discussed The Wooden Birds Magnolia and Jason Lytle s Yours Truly The Commuter Phoenix not only have continued the reincarnation theme that seems so prevalent this May but more they have done something super special complete and lovely with their new record Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix Sprite multi layered poppy and webby like a giant tight rubber band I think that you just need to listen And you can do so here on Myspace for free of course Or you can purchase the record here on iTunes and support the band or gasp leave the house and find this record at your local indie music store I don t know why this superbe French band sings in English but I m glad that they do Though even if they sung en Français comme Stereolab I d still be singing along to every word phonetically Phoenix is on tour in the US now dates here so give it a go if you re lucky enough to live someplace where this quartet of awesome is landing for a night Some fun things always crop up on the Phoenix blog here such as a few process photos from a screenprinted run of vinyl LP covers here Don t know who printed them but I d love to Anyone out there know Close up of screenprinted LP covers yay Posted in Stuff I Like What I m listening to Tagged big business black metal french music french pop good music live tour dates new music New releases phoenix screenprinted record covers wearephoenix wolfgang amadeus phoenix Leave a reply Jason Lytle Super new music releases of May part two Posted on May 22 2009 by strawberryluna 1 And now for part two of a probably just 3 part series of posts Unless of course you have a recommendation then feel free to let me know of anything else released in May Part two and certainly not in any order at all is Jason Lytle and his first solo record Yours Truly The Commuter released by the fiercly rad ANTI It s a bit of a head scratcher really as it feels like he s released a solo record before But he hasn t And this one is worth the wait Ooooh yes Following the apparent theme of reincarnation for music in May this year once again you may feel this record sounds familiar and I honestly hope that you do That would mean that you are already familiar with Grandaddy one of Lytle s previous and superb band projects Furthermore if that s the case then you really ought to listen to and will likely also love this first solo record Yours Truly The Commuter as well Written recorded and sung by Lytle from every angle as he played each instrument and sang all of the vocal tracks it s about as complete a record as one can get without being self indulgent in any way Again we re into editing choices and commitment to a vision around here and again we love it when music is made with those sorts of internal parameters too Do you like thoughts of floating flying dreaming and falling in love all over again with the beloved pets that have moved onto the fields near The Rainbow Bridge Then this record and Jason Lytle in general are you for you Bub Yours Truly The Commuter is available at yoru local independent record stores and also on iTunes with a bonus track Weather Girl You can also listen to a few tracks for free on Myspace And better Jason Lytle is embarking on a great big US tour this summer dates here hopefully some are near you Mad stoked for the Pittsburgh show at motherfreaking SANDCASTLE water slide park what And now for the greatest interview on good songwriting ever Posted in Stuff I Like What I m listening to Tagged ANTI anti records grandaddy great music jason lytle new music New releases the commuter yours truly 1 Reply The Wooden Birds Super new music releases of May part one Posted on May 21 2009 by strawberryluna 1 So around these parts We love music Stunning revelation I know Also around these parts we love melodic perhaps occasionally quiet intentional well constructed and pretty stuff too Kinda like design we appreciate restraint and the product of many choices edits and vision With that leaning let me tell you it s a lovely month for music with two fantastic new and newly incarnated say reincarnated even releases The Wooden Birds first record Magnolia The first is The Wooden Birds first record Magnolia
