This is great.

EDIT: After Hearing "Phantom in the Valley", there's no way in hell I'm not buying this album.
I highly recommend checking out their first two albums as well. I just love everything about this band and I really look forward to what else is to come from them in the future.

Also, check this out...a three song acoustic EP posted by their guitarist/lead singer Ethan Miller on his blog: http://silvercurrant.blogspot.com/2...d-acoustic.html

Calling Lightning and Nomads are from Magnificent Fiend, In Sand and Dirt from their self-titled debut.

^ I have my own copy of Magnificent Fiend, and I've heard my Dad's copy of their debut.

They're definitely a good band. My favorite song is "Dancers at the End of Time".




*Now, let's see this little EP...*



BTW, have you checked out the Mother Hips yet?

Mother Hips - White Falcon Fuzz

Ah. I interpreted your post as this was the first time you had heard them

I've listened to two of their albums a few times and liked what I've heard. I should probably look into them a little more seriously.

Given the fact that my computer doesn't seem to want to work for more than 20 minutes at a time recently as well as the stupid amount of school work I have had to get done for this week...no I haven't.

Ouch...

Being that (I'm sure) you rely pretty heavily on your computer for school work, that's gotta suck. A lot.

Luckily most of the work I have to do is on programs that can be found in two computer labs on campus. It still would be nice to be able to use my computer and do the work in the comfort of my own room (mainly so I can listen to music while working) since I do have the programs, but my computer is not cooperating. I'll be doing a system restore as soon as I finish backing everything up.

Nudge nudge, wink wink.

I got a pair of random free tckets from a friend to go see Van Halen in Louisville last weekend for the tour opener. Now THAT was an awesome show. Definitely he ludest I've ever been to on top of that. If you didn't know the song right off, it just sounded like a wall of noise. 2 of my friends who came along had never seen the actual band before & I couldn't convince them that DLR wasn't on drugs, that's he's just wild all of the time.
Though now that I think of it, it could be both...

Ouch. Only band I remember seeing that was like that was Motley Crue, opening for Aerosmith in '06. Even when they played a song I actually knew (Helter Skelter) it took me until the chorus to figure it out because they were so loud and distorted

I've got to say, the first time I saw the Black Crowes I was against the stage directly in front of Rich. Luckily the first 4 songs were acoustic or I might not have realized the rest of the band were even playing. At least now I have a pretty good idea of EXACTLY what Rich's setup sounds like. Heh.

No regrets though- it was my first time seeing one of my favorite bands and I got to be that close. I scored Luther's set list too.

Does it matter if anyone but Rich is playing?

Seriously though, you know I know the feeling. Couldn't hear a thing after 3 hours in front of his cranked Harry Joyce/'65 amps in '06. Just so you know, I have a picture from opening night of the summer '08 tour that clearly shows the knobs on his amps...master on the HJ is dimed and normal is at about 3 o'clock, while the Royal Albert is on about 9/10.

Just listened to Ryan Adams and the Cardinals' Cold Roses for the first time in a while - maybe a year or more... Looking through the liner notes I notice that Neal Casal isn't even on that fucking album. Instead, it's a guy named J.P. Bowerstock on lead guitar.



So, at this point, I have to look this up to see what the deal is. Where could I have possibly gone wrong?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neal_C...6_The_Cardinals

So, I was mistaken. Casal replaced Bowerstock for The Cardinals' Easy Tiger and played on everything else afterwards. These albums fall into that "touch and go" category that Adams so easily falls into. With the exception of the Follow The Lights EP; which, while being decidedly mellow, is pretty solid. It also contains an excellent cover of Alice In Chains' "Down In A Hole". And, I suppose, to be fair, Jacksonville City Nights gets better with each listen; but I was never crazy about it.

Jacksonville City Nights really is a grower. somehow became my fourth favorite of his things, not including Whiskeytown stuff.

"Hard Way To Fall" is just, shoot.

I've heard their 2008 album "Let It Ride", and while it was good, there honestly wasn't anything that really caught my attention and made me want to keep listening to them.

Let It Ride is up on grooveshark though, so you could always check it out there.
