What I'm Playing April 2009

Here's an embedded playlist of what I've been listening to lately (you can use it stream the songs):

Elvis Perkins

If we can't have any new material from Jeff Mangum, then I guess Elvis Perkins will have to do.

Seriously, I really like this song...but it is SUCH a blatant NMH rip-off, especially the ending!

Shellac in Pontiac

A week ago I went to see Shellac play at the Crofoot in Pontiac, MI.  I actually had a couple of tickets (that my mother-in-law picked up for me) but couldn't find anyone to go with me (Prentice was on his honeymoon and no one from Nashville could make the trip).  Phreddy Wischusen, general manager of the Crofoot, told her that by getting the tickets for me she proved wrong all the late night talk show hosts with their jokes about mothers-in-law.  The Crofoot is a fairly new and nice venue.  I was standing right in front of the stage.  Last time I did that was with Matt at Slint in Chicago.  Chris Brokaw opened the show.  The dudes talking loudly behind me during Brokaw's set were annoying.  The Shellac set was loose and enjoyable.  Here are some photos.  More here.
