I grew up playing shows with Jason and his band On the Might of Princes in the late 90s and early 2000s on Long Island, NY. Although my taste in music was much different at the time, I could appreciate the raw and honest energy he put into every set I've seen them play. Whether there were 5 people at the show or 500, Jason played with a sense of authenticity and passion like he was playing the songs for the very first time. His music played a vital role during a very important time of my life, and for this I thank him. For those unfamiliar with his music, here is a solid jumping off point.
This one's a slow burner, press play and then go make some oatmeal or something.
This Dream Koala track whirls around a mesmerizing 'XX-sounding' guitar line and builds so effortlessly only to escape to the space around it.
It's all about the space in between the song.
Proud to welcome Long Jawns back to NO REQUESTS. It's been a big year for him for his GENT & JAWNS project he's doing with Billy the Gent. Gonna be a sweaty one.
The happiest song you'll hear all day.
Goddamn these filthy rats.
R.I.P. to one of the greats.
Give me more brass!
I am currently at the beginning stages of a training program for my first marathon in November. This was sent to me today of a Ted Talk with Zoe Romano, a woman who recently ran across the United States and is preparing to run the entire length of the Tour de France. While I am not running across the country, and am uncertain of how everything will turn out, I am excited about this adventure. Listen to some of her insight into her motivation to do these runs, it translates well to life in general.
I've been ending my sets with this track lately, it sits so well in these damp summer nights.
Haven't done a live off the cuff mix like this in a while, had a lot of fun with this one. A mish mash of some of my favorite disco tunes that I've been playing out lately.
