The Two last commercials for this run

When Jeff drove over to the house last week to deliver the stove, he had no idea that Barth Edmonton would show up and throw a wrench in the plans. By the end of the day Jeff had broken his leg, pinched a nerve in his back. While old Barth would be stuck with a scar he would keep for the rest of his life. An emotional scar. Me? I came out unscathed. well, mostly.

POOTIE- Man Pig – Music Essay

Calling this a music review would be missing the point. I’m neither trying to convey a positive or negative view of this music. You should not base your further study of this music on the fact that I reacted to it in a way that might jibe with your beliefs. What I am trying to do is ignite your interest or at the very least spark some conversation. Here’s what I think this music makes me feel, reminds me of and conveys to me. Now you take it and run with it. I am not criticizing the work, on the contrary I found it interesting enough to talk about. Pootie Man Pig pootie.bandcamp.com This is a name your price digital download. So do yourself a favor or don’t, click the bandcamp link above, give it a listen and give Pootie a few bucks for his hard work. Reminds me of Tony/All, early Descendents, Guided by Voices. Some of these songs are long, I think Pootie would be better served by shorter songs, i.e. early GBV. Like the kinetic energy behind “C.B.”, while it’s the shortest song its got some good energy. Like the beat. This kid has a lot of good ideas. I can hear a lo-fi Tripping Daisy or some hints of Sebadoh. There are two or three songs in each song. At least. I still say he benefits from shorter songs, break up some of these songs, a seven minute ride through the woods on a snowmobile with no seat might be a bit much to ask of some people. Great ideas. Good execution. Needs a producer or editor. Some of the songs tend to be overlong, with lots of change in each song, you can of lose track of what song you are listening to and where you started. Bandcamp was made for artists like this, to release a song or two at a time. When you don’t have to sit on the songs too make an album, this kind of site really makes use of your creative energy. Sitting on these songs for three years and releasing them all at once doesn’t serve Pootie. The conventional album is no longer the accepted frame work, what’s an album anymore? Some artists have stopped releasing music in a bunch, for good or ill, but it seems like this would be a better option for Pootie. “Two more Years” perfect example of too much. Song is over six...

SLTM (the podcast) Episode 241

I really crapped out on this one, I had a bit that I wasn’t sure of and instead of polishing it in time for this episode I laid down like a wuss. So instead I read from some crappy book that someone gave me as a joke. How sad, doing a stupid, lazy, unfunny radio bit on a ten year old podcast. This was supposed to be about freedom, about doing your own thing. Instead, I buckled under my own low self esteem and went the easy way. Pathetic. You should not listen to this podcast anymore.

Johnny Indovina – trials of the writer – music review

Johnny Indovina Trials of the Writer johnnyindovina.com Likable pop music. Kind of a breathy, low register vocal on the first two tracks. This guy has an agreeable voice, soothing almost. Third song is a nice Neil Young knockoff, pulls it off well. I’m not sure he needs to use the same vocal on all the songs. Let’s see if he does. Per the first three songs, the songs are too long. All over four and a half minutes. Nick Cave like vocal timbre/tempo. Vocals also remind me a bit of Kevin Tihista. Lyrics are a bit cliched. Almost a talk sing vocal quality. Kind of reminds me of when David Bowie would do that in a song. Sorry, but the songs are way too long. Not all of them need to be 4 ½ minutes plus. Some editing in length or a short one would be a nice change of pace. Some nice guitar work on the songs. Lyrics can be a bit trite at times. “Wrote a letter, wonder how it ends?” too false sincere. Never trusts those false romantics, it’s all about the pootang. Starting with track 8, last four songs. While the last song picks up a bit, adding some steel guitar and a steppier beat, the last four songs are pretty much the same tempo, timbre, and speed. The vocalist never gets much over a Mike Scott/Liam Neeson whisper sing. It would have been nice to have some variation or to jumble the track order. The singer does have a warm inviting voice. Songs are a bit long, over five minutes each. It doesn’t detract from the songs. It’s just that it’s a bit much over 11 songs, to much to digest in one sitting. My advice, such as it is, would be to either trim the songs, or release an EP with 5 songs. AC/DC, Van Halen, Aerosmith (when they were good) understood back in the day that a good album was 35 minutes or below. Better to leave your audience wanting more. Maybe this is the problem today in music. You Feel like this is maybe your only chance to be heard, why not wow the audience with everything you got. You may never be able to record again. Put it all out there. “I love the Way” is a nice Neil Young rocker. Still I would like to hear the vocals differ at times. *This review was written by an idiot. Just...
