No I don't remember that things have always been this bad and you cannot convince me otherwise.

This is kind of funny. Belle and Sebastian forgot their drummer at a rest stop near Fargo. Their drummer was not on board.

I was driving by The Echo music venue on the way home from work (it's a couple blocks from my house) and I saw Matthew Sweet on the marquee. He had played there a few years ago and I wasn't in the mood at the time, but on a whim I contacted my friend who works there and got on the list for tonight's show.

I hadn't seen him since the Altered Beast tour back in the early 90s, and while the guy appears to have put on 100 lbs in the interim, his voice doesn't seem to have changed a bit. He sounded great. A mixture of old and new stuff; a handful of tracks from Girlfriend, Beast, and 100% Fun as well as some from his new album Tomorrow Forever. He really has a knack for writing catchy hooks and his retro pop style with harmonized vocals never gets old for me.

His backing band included Ric Menck and Paul Chastain, who have been playing with him for a while and were also in the short-lived band Velvet Crush, who put out the amazing Teenage Symphonies To God. His guitarist, Jason something, did a lot of impressive shredding.

Anyway the big surprise was that late in the set when they performed I've Been Waiting from Girlfriend, Susanna Hoffs of The Bangles fame came up to sing backing vocals. That was quite the treat. In retrospect, not exactly a shocker as the two of them have put out three albums of covers (Under The Covers) and are longtime friends.

She looked hot from where I was standing. I do miss the dark eye shadow though.

That's hilarious. Stuart Murdoch had been posting a bunch of road trip photos these last few weeks, they seemed to be having fun. And now this.

At least they are taking it pretty well:

Yep. Pretty damn keen. The Future's Void was a highlight of 2014.

Lots of albums I'm keen to hear coming out on the 25th in fact. Turnover, Hammock, Leprous, Sannhet, The War on Drugs...

Really looking forward to Mount Kimbie's new one on Sept 8. "Blue Train Lines" is the song of the year for me.
