Elsinore @ Canopy Club in January for Rehearsal Space

Well last night was Elsinore’s first night at Rehearsal Space, Canopy Club’s new Monday night gig.

I made it a little late last night, but just in time [...]

The Samples

No, I’m not referring to sampler tracks, I’m referring to the laid-back melodies of The Samples, a five-piece group mostly from Vermont who have been around since at least the early 90s, and have a catalog of 18+ releases. They tend to stick with very melodic tracks, and the strings come out clearly, blending well [...]

The Eels

I found this one through Filter Magazine’s Media section, and it’s also featured in the Filter Top 5 Picks box at the bottom of the red sidebar. What a funky, middle-eastern feeling, chilled out dance tune. Try it out, I think it will have you all addicted. It was released on Dimension Mix: A Tribute [...]

Cameron McGill

Ok, today we’re covering Cameron McGill. Great relaxed rock type of music. If you enjoy Wilco, Ryan Adams, or maybe even some country you’ll probably enjoy this stuff. The first track off the album, “Long Way Back To California,” is the best contender I’ve heard yet to replace Phantom Planet’s “California” as The O.C. theme [...]

Feist – Let It Die (2004)
