Video Watch… Joanna Newsom – New Stuff Live

Man, do I love watching audience-taped live performances. The loud fumbles, the inability to see what exactly is going on, and best of all – the occasional word whispered to the friend in the crowd. If you’re into this fine display of consumer videography like me, then check out these videos of some new tracks from Joanna Newsom. (Seriously though, this is pretty exciting).

[Giveaway!] Elvis Costello Spectacle Season 1 DVD + Sundance Channel Prize Pack

If you like well shot live performances and artist interviews, then I highly suggest you peruse your long list of cable channels to see if you’re carrying the Sundance Channel. Along with their Live From Abbey Road program, the network also carries a performance/talk show that has nothing to do with the recent fight for late night, and that’s Spectacle: Elvis Costello With… .

Seriously, listen to this. Wendesday nights at 10 p Elvis Costello invites a wide range of artists to come on his show to perform with him and his band and talk music, from one musical genius to another. Last season featured visits from Lou Reed, Bill Clinton, James Taylor, Elton John, Bruce Springsteen, Tony Bennett, The Police, Rufus Wainwright, She & Him, Jenny Lewis, and Smokey Robinson… the list goes on. I know, right? Check out this clip from the Boss’s interview, where he admits that “Hungry Heart” was originally written for… The Ramones?

Now to the good stuff. If you missed out on Season 1 of Spectacle or desperately need for it to be in your home collection, then you’ve come to the right music blog. E-mail dustsleeve@gmail.com and you will be automatically entered into a random drawing for Spectacle Season 1 AND a Sundance Channel Prize Pack. Update: Congrats to Laura from Chicago!

New Release Update – January 18

Spoon – Transference

Merge Records / buy!

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like Austin-based, Britt Daniel backed Spoon. Music lovers tend to come from one of two viewpoints on the foursome – they either absolutely love them or are luke-warmly interested. Either way, I have a feeling their 7th release, Transference, is going to be a crowd-pleaser.
MP3: Spoon – “Written In Reverse ”

Surfer Blood – Afro Coast

Kanine / buy!

Every year there is a bucket full of over-hyped, Pitchfork-approved, blogged-to-death groups that put out a few good singles and one mediocre album. Surfer Blood seemed to be a good candidate for this category, but after hearing their debut Afro Coast , I have to say – this time the hypers got it right. These Palm Beach, 90’s throwback rockers are worth listening to.
MP3: Surfer Blood – “Swim”

Eels – End Times

Vagrant / buy!

When it comes to Eels, you pretty much know what you’re going to get. E has his scratchy, melancholy vocals and minimal guitar/piano/drum sound set in stone, so you’ll either like it or you won’t. The four track recording sounds bare and personal, and that’s because it is – one listen to the lyrics will have you uncomfortably involved in E’s loneliness and misery… just the way you like it.
MP3: Eels – “Little Bird”
