Hey guys, it's Mags again. I'm gonna spin a couple more SXSW artists. I'm not gonna go crazy with it, just on a Saturday here and there. Because believe me, I could fill at least 3 weeks, but that seems a bit excessive, so just a few highlights.
This one is Gossling. I saw them at the Aussie BBQ, which featured exclusively bands from Australia. I picked them over the other band I really liked (Miami Horror) because I immediately developed a huge crush on the singer. Shallow? Probably. Am I sorry? Not in the slightest.
The songs they did at the BBQ were a little more electronic(?) than this one, which I felt suited her voice better.
I'd never heard of Chromeo before Thursday night, but I enjoyed their show. This video doesn't really capture the energy in the tent. I'm not sure what exactly to call their sound, but it's interesting.
If there's more interest, I'll see about posting a few more after we all enjoy The Dread Pirate's selections.
Hey guys, it's Mags. Today and tomorrow I'm sharing an artist each that I heard for the first time at SXSW. Today is Nicole Atkins. She went on at like 6:30 in the morning on Thursday before The Hold Steady. My friend and I agreed Nicole was our favorite artist of the morning.
"Girl You Look Amazing" starts around 7:15, which she played on Thursday and was in my head most of the rest of the day.
From the Ben Affleck hosted SNL earlier this year, so the language is OK. Once again, Kanye puts out one of my favorite albums of the year.
This originally was intended to be a BKaC entry, but DP and I recorded on a Saturday morning while watching soccer, so everytime we tried to get on topic, something happened to drag us back off. Never the less, I think it's an enjoyable podcast. We've always said this is our neighborhood bar, and all this episode is is a recording of two dudes on some virtual barstools.
Welcome back to WGOM Radio. Our next episode is a discussion between CarterHayes and me, MagUidhir. I've already apologized to CH directly about the audio quality. We had a great discussion, but I feel like I let him down by not capturing his input very well. I obviously didn't set up the settings correctly after reinstalling everything on my new hard drive And now I apologize you, the listener, for the jarring transitions between speakers. I promise future episodes will be better. Come for the comparison between Mike Trout and Jason Tyner, stay for the rundown of the 1998 Royals roster.

This is my oldest male cousin Jacob. He's four years younger than me. My oldest cousin is his big sister. Often times when we got together when we were younger, the girls - my little sister and his big sister - would always play together, and Jacob and I would play together. I haven't seen as much of him as an adult as I would like, but we're working on seeing each other more often.
This is an original work of his. I'm really proud of him not only for his talent, but having the guts to put himself out there like this. I couldn't imagine opening myself up like that for the world to see.
If you'll indulge me, I've deviated from our live version habits because this video holds a place in my heart.
Boring personal stuff after the jump, if you feel like subjecting yourself to it. Continue reading Jack Johnson – “Sitting, Waiting, Wishing”
Back in July, I went down to Tennessee for my (3rd out of 4) little cousin's wedding. While I was down there, I really got to reconnect with my oldest little cousin (We're both the oldest in our respective families, but she is, as I like to teasingly remind her, 1 year, 10 months, and 6 days younger than me). Anyway, she told me to look up this song when I got home. I did, and there was something familiar about it in the deep recesses of my mind, but I couldn't figure out what exactly. Then she told me that we used to listen to Guy Clark, and this song in particular, together a lot when we were younger and got to see each other a few times a year. It was really nice to be reminded of when we were closer, and it's gotten regular rotation since.
Let's kick this week off right. FTLT and I were at this concert back in June, and judging from the video not too far from the person taking this. The weather was terrible all day, but broke about 30 minutes before the Hold Steady went on. The show ended up being awesome, though the whiskey and singing along meant I couldn't talk very well for a few days.
