St. Louis is in the middle of a pretty decent stretch of live music that looks to stretch until April. Tonight, Retribution Gospel Choir is playing at The Firebird. RGC is the generally louder and more energetic side project of some of the members of Low. I imagine I would love singer Alan Sparhwk’s voice in almost almost any musical setting. If I was not leaving town early tomorrow morning, I would certainly be at the show. Here’s and RGC video and couple from my favorite Low album, The Great Destroyer.
Retribution Gospel Choir – “Hide It Away”:
Low – “California”:
Low – “Death of a Salesman”:
Low – “Monkey”:
If I didn’t have unchangeable plans tonight, I would most certainly be seeing Langhorne Slim at Off Broadway tonight.
“Say Yes” (live):
The Old Rock House just announced a show by Midlake, a band I have been a fan of for a few years, on May 15. I will definitely be checking out that show. Their song “Roscoe” is the one that really turned me onto the band, but several of the other songs off the album that featured “Roscoe”, The Trials of Van Occupanther, just hit me in a special musical sweet spot as well. They have a new album out, The Courage of Others, that I am just now digging into, but have enjoyed thoroughly so far.
We’ve been pretty lacking in the posting quantity and quality recently, so I am now just resorting to random youtube videos of whatever songs catch my fancy.
Here’s Shocking Blue doing “Venus”:
Whoa hey, yeah. I am seeing Camera Obscura tonight at Off Broadway. It’s sold out, so here is some music to hold you over in case you can’t make it:
Camera Obscura – “Honey in the Sun”:
Camera Obscura – “Let’s Get Out of This Country”:
Camera Obscura – “Lloyd I’m Ready To Be Heartbroken”:
Camera Obscura – “French Navy”:
So I am a big fan The Tallest Man on Earth, which is the moniker of of Kristian Matsson, a Swede with a serious Americana/folk fixation.
Here he is performing my favorite song of his, “Pistol Dreams” at the House of Blues in Dallas:
Here he is performing “It Will Follow the Rain” on Swedish television — tell me this doesn’t remind you of Townes Van Zandt…
