I’ve been waiting a long time for Land Of Talk’s first full-length. It was over two years ago that I recorded a “new song” at The Syrup Room. That song is now “Give Me Back My Heart Attack”. Part of the delay might be attributed to the departure of drummer Bucky Wheaton, who was replaced by Eric Thibodeau in 2007. But I like to think they were just making sure the album was sufficiently awesome before it came out.

Land Of Talk’s show at Mercury Lounge was split evenly between songs from their 2006 EP “Applause, Cheer, Boo, Hiss” and songs from the brand new “Some Are Lakes” (buy: LP, CD) released by Saddle Creek.

On all of Land Of Talk’s recordings, Liz Powell’s voice is doubled in a very obvious way. It leads to an effect which I personally love. At the live shows there’s only one of her, but she’s still amazing. The vocals were a little low on the first few songs, but the sound was great after that.

Three-piece bands are my favorite because everyone needs to pull their weight at all times and there is little room for error. Even though Liz’s vocals are the most pronounced element of Land Of Talk’s sound, each instrument plays a unique role. Eric’s transitions to the off-beat hi-hat are seamless and he is always in sync with Chris’s bass playing which carries as many melodies as the lead vocals. The chords that Liz chooses to play on her guitar are perfectly dissonant and she knows just when to pluck out arpeggios and when to strum away.

Land Of Talk are currently on tour with Broken Social Scene. Liz often joins them on stage for 7/4 Shoreline and other songs that Feist and Emily Haines are too busy to sing.

ATJ @ CMJ

ATJ invades Canada

After The Jump wasn’t content just sponsoring shows in our own country so we decided to involve ourselves with Canada’s shows as well. If you’re heading up to Pop Montreal this weekend to gain some foreign policy experience be sure to check out the show at Petit Campus on Saturday.

Near bd. St-Laurent, Plateau Mont-Royal

Mother Mother sound promising. They’ll be down for CMJ later this month, playing Mercury Lounge on the 24th. By the way, I just realized that the myspace music player has been revamped. The sound quality of the music still leaves something to be desired, but at least the moving EQ bars are actually reacting to the music and are not completely random. Audio dorks care about this stuff.

Here is the first of many recordings from this year’s SXSW festival. I mentioned Jukebox The Ghost briefly last summer and promised you’d hear from them again. Here they are performing at After The Jump’s Backyard BBQ in Austin, Texas.

Jukebox The Ghost hail from Washington D.C. and their first full-length album “Let Live and Let Ghosts” hits stores on April 22nd. They are touring quite a bit this spring and I recommend that you catch them live. I had trouble believing this sound came from only three people until I saw it with my own eyes. All tour dates are listed here.

Ryan does Austin – SXSW 2008

It’s been a rather slow start to 2008, but I’ll be at this year’s SXSW festival hoping to discover some new bands and catch some old favorites. I will be helping out with the sound at After The Jump’s backyard barbecue on Friday and Saturday. Downtown gets really crazy by the end of the week, so I’m looking forward to chilling out in the east side ‘burbs with free food and drink. Stay tuned to the site for post-SXSW audio goodness.

After the Jump Heads to Austin for SXSW!
After the Jump is headed to SXSW for the first time ever with four outrageous shows, including our very own official showcase (not bad for an organization under a year old huh?).

Laura Veirs’ album Saltbreakers was one of my favorite albums of the past year and I was terribly disappointed when the Decemberists tour which she was supporting was canceled. I am extremely happy to have caught this solo show which was a warm-up for her short tour of the UK. She should be back on tour with her band this spring.

During this Sunday night show she played a little banjo, shared stories of her quiltmaking adventures (with samples) and debuted a brand new song for the attentive crowd at Union Hall. Though it hadn’t been named at the time, her new song has been listed as “To Be Held” on her recent setlists.

Laura Veirs – To Be Held (live at Union Hall 1/27/08)

Aside from the dull thump of bocce balls coming from the bar above, the atmosphere was just about perfect for this solo show. It was the first time I had seen folding chairs (about four rows deep) set up in front of the stage at Union Hall, allowing for everyone to have a great view.

Below is the setlist along with some highlights from the show.

“It’s so fucked, eh? The Internet, eh? We perform and you go off and you blog that shit.”
– Adrian Jewett, 12/14/07

I agree that the internet is fucked (we have a love/hate relationship), but I wouldn’t be blogging this shit if I didn’t think it was fantastic. Since I first heard them play live at CMJ two years ago, The Most Serene Republic have only gotten more and more exciting. Their latest album Population is simultaneously overwhelming, enveloping and infectious, and their live show is no different. You may wonder how a person with only four appendages can play such complicated drumbeats, or how three guitars can be so tastefully combined into such a cohesive sound, or how music so progressive can still be so catchy. Or you could just stop thinking about it and get lost in the music.

Almost invariably, it seems that my favorite time to see a band is between their second and third albums. The catalog is deep enough that you don’t know exactly what they will play, but you’re sure to hear most of your favorite songs. It’s not that I don’t enjoy going to see… let’s say Radiohead, these days. But at this point they have so many songs I love that I know I won’t get to hear all of my favorites. I can only wish that I’d seen them touring The Bends while trying out songs from OK Computer.

Last Friday, The most Serene Republic played mostly songs from their new album along with 3 selections each from their first record and their EP Phages, which is still my favorite of their recordings. I especially enjoyed the three-part vocals on “(Oh) God”, the pots and pans opening up “Humble Peasants” and all of the keyboard and drum segues between songs, which sounded partially improvised and partially born of sections from various songs.

Double Dipping

During a commercial break for Jay Leno tonight I heard the same New Pornographers song on two separate ads. First was a shortened version of the University of Phoenix ad that’s been on for months. Second was a commercial for the new film “Feast of Love”. I can’t remember noticing that before, at least never with an indie band. The song was “The Bleeding Heart Show” (my favorite track on Twin Cinema). Not so weird to have two ads with the same songs… just weird to hear them both in a span of two minutes.

The University of Phoenix ad:

Here’s the full length trailer for “Feast of Love”. The New Pornos chime in during the last 40 seconds or so.

Here’s an excerpt from a Pitchfork interview on the U. of Phoenix commercial:

—————————–

Pitchfork: I saw an ad for one of those quasi-legit universities, the University of Phoenix, and it happened to have a song of yours in the background.

Carl Newman: Yeah, I know. It’s weird, isn’t it?

Pitchfork: What’s the deal with that?

Carl Newman: It’s one of those things that just, you get a call, and somebody said “hey, the University of Phoenix wants to use the end of “Bleeding Heart Show” in a commercial.” And I thought, “eh, fair enough.” And I really honestly didn’t know that University of Phoenix was a huge online university. I actually thought it was, like, the University of Phoenix; like, every city has its big university, you know? And I thought, “oh, it’ll show in the Southwest.” It seemed kind of odd to me, like, I’ve never heard of a university having a TV commercial, but I thought, oh well. All of a sudden, people started saying “I saw your commercial during ‘Saturday Night Live'” or “I saw your commercial during ‘American Idol’,” and I thought, “what the hell is up with that?” Then I began to realize that, well, I guess we inadvertently signed up to be in a big commercial. How about that?

Pitchfork: Does it seem odd to be connected with a sketchy university?

Carl Newman: You know, if University of Phoenix is some kind of scam, then I suppose I’d feel kind of stupid for being a part of it, but you know, I can’t really say that I have much of an opinion, you know? It’s a university, or a school, and it might be a crappy school, but it seems like letting a crappy school use your song is probably better than letting the best business use your song. I’m not overly political, but if Wal-Mart wanted to use the song, I would just go, “fuck off, no chance in hell.” But for a lot of other things, I’m not so precious about our music. A lot of work went into it– you record your song and you mix it and you put it out and it’s there in the world, and as for the rest of it, I can’t really stop people from doing with it what they want. Songs always mean the same thing to me regardless of whether they’re in a commercial or playing in the background on “The Office” or whatever. I don’t really have any… I’m kind of shocked that I have to talk about it.

One thing that made me feel better was, right around the time that commercial started showing up, there was also the Outback Steakhouse commercial with Of Montreal in it. And I thought, “thank God, that’s really going to deflect some attention away from us.” At least we didn’t give our song to Outback. Now I’m afraid if I accidentally say something about the University of Phoenix that a hammer is going to come down on my head, or I’ll find myself in a lawsuit. My official stance is, “I fully support the University of Phoenix,” but to back that, I honestly didn’t know what it was. But then again, if I did know what it was, I’m not sure that I would have said no. We’re just trying to get by in this world. When you play music for so long and don’t make any money, and people start offering you money for things that involve no effort on your part, you start going, “I’ll do that.”

—————————–

This all allows me to point out that Band of Horses recently licensed one of their songs to Wal-Mart. I finally have a legitimate reason to rail against them, you know, besides their songs making me want to run a rusty spike through both of my eardrums. They really sound like they couldn’t come up with enough words to write a legitimate album and they just drag out the same sorry chord progression for years. I mean, for God’s sake… their lyrics are published with ellipses.

“Then I’m sure… I could steer…”
[chorus]
The Title Of The Song
[end chorus]

Sorry, I’m not mean very often. I feel better now.

The Most Serene Republic is coming!

I only post about upcoming shows when I’m really excited about them. And I haven’t been this excited about a show in a long time. For the last year, I’ve listened to The Most Serene Republic’s Phages EP more than any other album. I’ve been anticipating their second full-length Population so strongly that I thought I might have doomed myself to disappointment. On the contrary, it’s been one of those rare and beautiful instances where I’m absolutely enraptured by an album from first listen. While Phages is short and dense, Population allows for some breathing room with slow building songs and a couple of jazzy moments. It’s still an album that demands your undivided attention, but if you’re a fan of sweeping, driving, complex pop music (or any other Arts & Crafts band) I guarantee you it will be time well spent. The album drops on October 3rd.

The Most Serene Republic – Present of Future End.mp3

I’ve seen them only once, which was at the Arts & Crafts showcase during CMJ 2005. It was simply awesome. They have one of the most insane drummers you’ve ever seen and the talent of the rest of band does not lag far behind. But while you might revel at their musicianship for a song or two, you’ll quickly come to hear them as a cohesive group, not a bunch of hot-shot prog-heads. Most of their songs are in crazy meter, but flow so smoothly that you barely notice the changes.

Here’s a live performance of my favorite song from Phages, the title track:

Anyway, they are playing three New York area shows and I’ll have to miss two of them, but there is no place in the world I’d rather be on September 21st than Union Hall. My friends at Neon Lights are presenting the bill and I hope to be recording the show. From their press release:

NEON LIGHTS PRESENTS announces our return to Union Hall, following a victorious two night stand in July (Ola Podrida, De Novo Dahl). In an effort to top ourselves, we’ve brought in a secret Canadian weapon, THE MOST SERENE REPUBLIC. The Ontario seven-piece were the first group signed to the Broken Social Scene’s Arts and Crafts label that weren’t a direct off-shoot of BSS themselves. The lovely expansive pop sound of their upcoming sophomore release, Population, will place the band on the level of their celebrated countrymen like Stars or Metric. Joining MSR will be hotly tipped Brooklyn newcomers, HIGH PLACES and SHE KEEPS BEES. The sweet melodies and alien instrumentation of HIGH PLACES have earned the duo Pitchfork love letters and an opening spot on the Blow’s upcoming Northeast tour. The spooked songwriting and soulful voice of SHE KEEPS BEES’ Jessica Larrabee have garned favorable comparisons to Fiona Apple or the early work of Chan Marshall. Between sets, music will be lovingly selected by our fellow blogging /concert promoting guest DJ’s, Justin and Nghia from CRACKER’S UNITED/ FRICTION and Chris from THE BATTERING ROOM/ KNOCKOUT.

Neon Lights Presents...

I can’t make their Mercury show because I’m helping to produce Beirut on the 20th at Brooklyn Masonic Temple in Fort Greene. We scouted the venue today and I have to tell you, it’s going to be an amazing show. One of the greatest things about this season of the Wordless Music Series is that WNYC has signed on to record and broadcast all of the shows. This means their extremely knowledgeable engineer and all of his expensive microphones will be there. I can’t wait to hear Zach playing his trumpet through a ribbon mic that’s three times his age. Honestly, in that hall with those mics, Beruit will sound better than ever. And if you can get over your fear of the G train, the venue is not very hard to get to and very unique with superb acoustics. Or come to Manhattan on the 24th, both shows will be great. [details at Wordless Music Series]

I can’t make the Maxwell’s show on the 22nd because I need to be at Battering Room’s Knockout: Round 6. Some good friends of mine are playing… Details on that are forthcoming.
