Another one of those days I just don’t feel like wasting words. Well, that’s not entirely true, I just spent the past 20 minutes talking with Casey discussing why the kids won’t share the Trix with the rabbit. Just doesn’t seem right to us.
Peter von Poehl is a Swedish singer-songwriter, composer, musician and director. His first album, Going to Where the Tea-Trees Are, was published by the French label Tôt ou tard on 9 May 2006. I’m not sure how I slept on such a great album, but I’m glad I ran across it now. He’s working on a new release, “May Day”, which is scheduled be release sometime this fall.

Lately, I’ve taken to the habit of watching classic movies before going to bed. It’s lead me to become quite the savvy classic movie torrent hunter. Occasionally, in my search I’ll come a across a movie that affected me at a pivotal time in my life, perhaps as a young teen or a child. There is a certain nostalgia attached to those movies, and watching them again sometimes reminds me of the seemingly important life decisions of the time. But I think the reason why I keep watching them is not to be reminded of what my life was like then, but what it is now. Remembering that it can be nice to grow older, to see things from a different angle. The greatest gift time ever gave me is perspective, all those important decisions have already been made, all notions of cool seem to disappear and my life suddenly just is and can never be any different. Unless, of course, the movie happens to be Debbie Does Dallas, that’s a whole other post for an entirely different kind of website.
Somewhere between Los Campesinos, Futureheads, and Bloc Party, LOOK SEE PROOF are brothers David and Lee Sells (lead vocals & bass / vocals & guitar respectively), Jason Slender (guitar) and Jonny Harry (vocals & drums). After a whirlwind 6 months of existence LOOK SEE PROOF have supported The Rifles, The Fratellis, Breaks-Coop, The Heights and The On Offs and build a loyal local fanbase in the dingy bars of Bedford. In less than a year of existence they released two singles on Tigertrap Records (one of which sold out within a week of its release), released two singles on Weekender Records, performed live for Steve Lamacq’s show on Radio 1 at Maida Vale, performed on Lily Allens talk show, and released a full length release on Tigertrap Records. These track are from their debut release, Between Here And There, released on Tigertrap Records June 08.

A few weeks ago, I directed a music video for Brice Woodall + the Positrons. The thing is, Brice lives in Chicago and the band lives in VA which made it a bit difficult to get them together to shoot a music video, especially when they were prepping for a tour. the solution was that they are in the video, but only as cardboard cutouts, which makes for an interesting aesthetic. The cardboard cutouts are still sitting in my apt, but the actual band Brice Woodall + the Positrons are in Brooklyn tonight, live and in person.
They are playing Trash Bar in williamsburg tonight at 10pm, and Brice and Josh are doing a scaled down set tomorrow evening at Spike Hill on Bedford Ave in williamsburg as well.
