Entries in Superchunk (2)



In it's 43rd year, Bumbershoot is a Seattle institution! Every year Seattleites and beyond come out for diverse live music, comedy shows, and pretty much every other form of entertainment that you may desire. 

Bumbershoot was full of highlights but a personal favorite is Charles Bradley aka "The Screaming Eagle of Soul". Mr. Bradley has an inspiring story featured in a documentary called "Soul of America" proving that your never too old for a record deal and a second chance in life.

Bumbershoot is a festival where you cannot set up camp at any one stage or you might just miss out on an epic performance! Ultimately, you must go to the festival with the mentality that "you can sleep when your dead!"

New Music: Walkmen, Justin Townes Earle, Superchunk and more

Today is one of the bigger new music Tuesdays in recent memory, with lots of new stuff to fill your ipods and turntables.  From legends (Mavis Staples, Superchunk) to relative newcomers (Justin Townes Earle) and those in-between (The Walkmen, Of Montreal) there is a lot to look forward to.  Here's a preview of three of the releases I'm most excited about:

The Walkmen Lisbon

The established NYC indie rockers return with another solid collection of lilting, slurred tunes that were made for late nights.  Time spent in Portugal may have lent the band a bit of inspiration and an album name, but don't expect much of a departure; this still sounds like The Walkmen you know and love.

The Walkmen - Stranded


Justin Townes Earle Harlem River Blues

Harlem River Blues is Justin Townes Earle's third album in as many years.  With so many releases to serve as benchmarks, it's easy to see the maturity and confidence grow over time.  Harlem River Blues picks up where Midnight At The Movies left off - with traditional country and folk delivered with both reverence and a slight urban/punk-rock edge.

Superchunk Majesty Shredding

The last time Superchunk released an LP I was in high school, but unfortunately back then I wasn't listening to indie rock...  With the release of Majesty Shredding, Superchunk is back - and unlike some of their peers that are just cashing-in, they are making some great new music.  Digging For Nothing is a killer track that sounds like vintage Superchunk.
