The Pines-Live At Sacred Heart Music Center

Posted August 11, 2012 By admin

As you may remember last post, I was trying to a find a new home to host live shows/bigger downloads since Demonoid went down. I’ve come up with a solution that should solve the problem. From here on out, I will be hosting shows on The Pirate Bay, as well as files under 400 MB on File Factory. This means for shows like the following, it will be hosted on The Pirate Bay, as well as having the opening act show being able to be downloaded from File Factory as it is under 400 MB’s. If it sounds confusing, you will see as we go it will actually be easier this way than in the past. The Pirate Bay uses “magnet links”, if you’re not familiar with what that means, you can find out more here. If you want to use old-fashioned .torrent files, click here to find out how to download those from The Pirate Bay. Please feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions, I am more than happy to help out. Here is the inaugural show using this method.

Record Store Day

Posted April 19, 2011 By admin

Saturday was the 4th annual Record Store Day. Full of exclusive releases, cool sales and live performances, it’s a music lover’s version of Christmas. I got to my local record store at 8:30 (opened at 9) and was 161st in line. But, I was able to get pretty much everything I wanted save for a few albums that weren’t really high on my list anyways. Here is a complete list of grabs:

-Jenny And Johnny / Gram Parsons & The Fallen Angels featuring Emmylou Harris-Love Hurts
-Ryan Adams & the Cardinals-Class Mythology EP-7″
-Doors-Riders On The Storm
-Jackson, Michael-“Hollywood Tonight / Behind The Mask”-7″
-Dennen, Brett B Side To The D Side-7-inch
-Nathaniel Rateliff-Shroud
-Rhymesayers Picture Disc
-Hendrix, Jimi-“Fire”/”Touch You”(previously unreleased)-7” Vinyl
-Hendrix, Jimi-“Fire”/”Touch You”(previously unreleased)/”Cat Talking To Me-CD
-Spektor, Regina-Four From Far
-Adele-Rolling in the Deep (Jamie XX Shuffle)/Rolling In the Deep (Live at World Café)

I ended up going to 4 different stores in the Minneapolis area. While there, I also caught 3 sets by local musicians and was able to record them. The following one was recorded at Hymie’s Vintage Records. It’s a really cool record store (and they do only carry vinyl), and April 16th was also named Hymies Vintage Records day in Minneapolis. This set is by a musician named Erik Koskinen, who’s music really reminds me of the old country singers from the 50’s/60’s with a rock flare. Weird description, I know, but it makes sense when you hear him.
