Options September 21, 2009: From a Distance, The World Closes In: BELL X1 + WILDBIRDS AND PEACEDRUMS live, from Ireland and Sweden, from a distance

One night, two spectacular performances from radically different bands from very different and awesome parts of the planet. At 9pm, Bell X1, from County Kildare, Ireland - these guys come from a future made of pop music that's brighter than anything you've ever heard - a dose of Talking Heads with a Top 40 flair from the year 2045. They drop by to play songs from their new album "Blue Lights on the Runway," out now on Yep Roc.

Then at 10 o'clock, Swedish two-piece Wildbirds & Peacedrums rock the studio with stripped-down Kate Bush-ian tribal vocals and bold, bare drums tinged with splashes of production that will make your face tingle. Their new album "The Snake" is out now on The Control Group, and they're playing tomorrow at The Bell House.

i can't believe you just did this. by the way, these have to be the absoulte dumbest lyrics ever written. if you just don't look too closely at anything, then everything appears fine even if it's really fucked up in reality. great message, bette.
  Mon. 9/21/09 8:05pm paul:

starring bette midler as.................................... ....................................... ....................................... ........................................ ........................................ ......... the ring master!
  Mon. 9/21/09 8:07pm Dominick:

He keeps his distance because of the way we smell
  Mon. 9/21/09 8:10pm jess your roomate (and friend):

why are you running late what is going on?
  Mon. 9/21/09 8:11pm trent:

WTF late?!? I am right on TIME! FROM A DISTANCE
  Mon. 9/21/09 8:13pm jess your roomate (and friend):

oh i guess my brain is just running late today. yes, from a distance.
  Mon. 9/21/09 8:20pm lupica:

Everyone should watch the video for Mund Auf Augen Zu. Not right now, but later.
  Mon. 9/21/09 8:24pm trent:

no, i give you permission to watch it now, if that's your speed. check it. thanx lupica.
  Mon. 9/21/09 8:26pm JT:

Mund auf augen zu?

mouth open eyes closed?

so dirty. i like it.
  Mon. 9/21/09 8:29pm trent:

hey JT, chill out, it's just about how someone wants to get someone to try some "prairie oysters"
  Mon. 9/21/09 8:41pm jess your roomate (and friend):

whoa trippy cell phone interference jam!
  Mon. 9/21/09 8:44pm marty mcsorley:

i totally checked my phone cause i thought i was gettn a call
  Mon. 9/21/09 8:48pm trent:

yes that means I've crossed over into "mind radio"
  Mon. 9/21/09 9:17pm dave:

belatedly: i love love LOVE 'the great defector', and that version was really awesome.
  Mon. 9/21/09 9:23pm leital:

Wendy and Lisa! Recently heard an awesome interview w/ them on Sound Opinions. I had no idea they were lovahs and had so much to do w/ Prince's sound.
  Mon. 9/21/09 9:24pm Irwin:

Thanks Trent (and Hatch!). I just downloaded this great W&L track and will recycle it some Weds. afternoon.
  Mon. 9/21/09 9:32pm trent:

you are quite welcome, I had that same idea from hatch. Let's make it a week for "waterfall" ! Kind of like a benefit. Maybe we can drive them mysteriously up in itunes sales.
  Mon. 9/21/09 9:40pm Laurie:

I first heard this Tiesto/Tegan & Sara song on Sulimay's. I don't think Joe liked it.
  Mon. 9/21/09 9:45pm trent:

wait laurie can you give me a quick crash course on sulimay's? just googled it and it looks.........
  Mon. 9/21/09 9:45pm paul:

god doesn't think his tiesto.
  Mon. 9/21/09 9:46pm paul:

(not as weird as tiesto on the new dizzee rascal album) (!?!?!)
  Mon. 9/21/09 9:46pm paul:

oh cool i have this solvent song on my computer already. done and done.
  Mon. 9/21/09 9:51pm trent:

i feel like he occupies a universe i need to work harder to get inside of
  Mon. 9/21/09 9:51pm Laurie:

Trent: I don't know much about it. It's three old farts from Philly who sit in a diner, eat breakfast, and listen to popular music. Actually, it's a little more than that, and I really love Joe, especially his facial expressions when he listens to music. Too funny! Joe's also a pretty good interviewer! He has interviewed Holy Fuck, Fuck Buttons, and some bands that don't have "fuck" in their names. Actually, only one other band. Apparently. Mogwai.
  Mon. 9/21/09 9:54pm Laurie:

Oh, I also think of Alby from Big Love whenever I hear the Killers. Awwww poor closeted Mormons. :'(
  Mon. 9/21/09 10:00pm A:

Nothing witty or obscure to say. Simply: great show, as always.
  Mon. 9/21/09 10:00pm dave:

if stoney, psychedelic records are making you want to shoot yourself in the face, you might want to ease off on the combat drugs and switch to something a bit less harsh.
  Mon. 9/21/09 10:01pm dave:

also: this is the one true bright side to the presence of the dead kennedys in rock band.

that and it's a whole mess of fun to play 'police truck'.
  Mon. 9/21/09 10:05pm a man with heavy head:

I like the rock band and to a lesser extent the guitar hero games but I can't stand the way it looks when they try to model actual people in the games. They need to just stop that.
  Mon. 9/21/09 10:56pm charles:

Hey Trent, I'm trying to find a song yuo played a couple weeks ago: syoung Russian girl, dancey - sounded about two or three years old. It might not have even been Russian, but it sounded like TATU. I think the chorus went:
shtep-a-fey, shtep-a-fey, shtep-a-feyyay
repeated a couple times.
  Mon. 9/21/09 11:14pm mb:

missed a cool show
  Tue. 9/22/09 12:20pm Ike:

Really great show from what I heard. Wow, did you actually play Bette Midler? I missed that. I must compliment you on your gigantic cojones. When I heard you back-announce that, I figured I must have misheard you. I thought it must have been "Mett Bidler" (an obscure breakcore group from Montana, or Idaho, or Tuva, but they only exist in my mind).
