"That's a bummer man"

Tough day for me over here. My sports addictions are taking it on the chin with the Cardinals starting 0-3 and Billy Donovan emphatically turning down the UK coaching job. Thankfully, as Jackopierce once wrote, music as salvation. This podcast pays homage to one of my favorite music websites, Emusic.com. This is a great site for finding obscure bands at reasonable prices. They feature lots of indie greats, heavy hitters, and a wide variety of music. You can even get a few free mp3s by trying out their site. All of the following tracks were gems I found at Emusic. Hope you enjoy!

Ok, you've convinced me. I've gone and joined emusic. I've already chosen my 25 free downloads. By the way, nice cast....that Sun Kill Moon was awesome. Weird take on Ocean Breathes Salty, it was hard to recognize the original. I'm curious does he (or they) write his (or their) own lyrics to songs also, or does he just redo other peoples stuff??

Mark Kozelek is the main songwriter. He writes his own stuff as well. I highly recommend the Sun Kil Moon album, "Ghosts of the Great Highway". It is an album of originals. I don't think it's available on Emusic, but it's on Itunes. Highly highly recommended.

He also did a similar album of rearranged covers of AC/DC songs. His arrangements turned the tone of many of those songs upside down.

emusic sounds like a pretty sweet deal. I reckon I should check it out. On the other hand, perhaps I'll try to keep this blog rooted in some old timey music as well.

Nice blog. It seems like the quality turned out just fine. The Dexateens were featured in Paste Mag the other week. Neil is a good song.
