"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

  Wed. 6/8/11 6:15am bryn:

hello hello
  Wed. 6/8/11 6:17am Looms:

Hello again!
  Wed. 6/8/11 6:44am bryn:

I don't know what this is exactly, but I like it :) / has that quote at the top always been there? only just noticed it
  Wed. 6/8/11 6:45am pierre:

Bonjour again
  Wed. 6/8/11 6:50am George of Troy:

Great vibe this AM, John! Enjoying it.
  Wed. 6/8/11 6:50am hamburger:

hello pierre - are you going to Sonar? (if so, you get to see Yelle!)
  Wed. 6/8/11 6:56am JA:

morning reg'lars
  Wed. 6/8/11 6:58am annie:

crappy internet connection makes for very disjointed listening... i can just pretend it's part of the musical plan..
  Wed. 6/8/11 7:12am maestroso:

Man, this Battles piece is amazing.
  Wed. 6/8/11 7:16am Looms:

I didn't know Neil Young made a synth-pop record.
  Wed. 6/8/11 7:38am Dead Corporate Eyes:

tuning in whilst getting ready for work...first time listener--great playlist! and good morning!
  Wed. 6/8/11 7:39am Dead Corporate Eyes:

why are these early shows "web only"?
  Wed. 6/8/11 7:48am pierre:

Hello Hamburger,
i'm afraid i'm not going to Sonar as much as i'd love to.
Yelle is not really on my top list (although i admit i've seen her live, before she became famous, she has the nicest legs, but i'm not a big fan of her music). I'd like to Baleapop which is a new french festival near Biarritz, in the south west.
  Wed. 6/8/11 7:49am pierre:

"go to Baleapop" > sorry
  Wed. 6/8/11 8:00am hamburger:

heh - I guess it helps that I don't know the lyrics :)
  Wed. 6/8/11 8:05am Bastian:

Julie Discroll is awesome!
  Wed. 6/8/11 8:15am pierre:

@ hamburger : i guess that, and the fact that you didn't see her all the time on tv (or radio, or media) the last two years. To many exposure can ruin things sometimes.
