The TouchTunes jukeboxes? Those things are amazing.

I hate those things. It used to be exciting seeing which random albums a bar's jukebox has, now they have like 50,000 songs and it takes all the fun out of it.

Nice.

I immediately loved Come Back the first time I listened to it (has it really been two whole years since this album leaked? wow.)

Over time I found myself not listening to it nearly as much as some of the other tracks on the album.

Then, about a year ago, I put on the headphones and the song hit me like a ton of bricks. The last minute or so is pretty powerful...Eddie's emotional wailing and McCready's little slices of guitar breaking through. Beautiful song, if you find the right moment to receive it.

If you want something more current, his recent release Bluefinger is one of the best things he's done in ages, and he just released an EP, Svn fngrs, as well that's quite good.

The guy doesn't really have a bad album, unless you listen to the assholes from Pitchfork.
I only have the Cult of Ray, and that one's excellent!

I actually want to see Grizzly Bear as much as Radiohead on the second leg of their tour. Their performance of the fantastic new song, 'While You Wait For the Others', on Conan last night is a perfect example of why.

I'd kill for an mp3 of this. Beautiful.

^ The lead singer looks like a young Paul Simon and sounds like a young Bowie.

Actually, the singer reminds me of the singer from British Sea Power (on their first album) sounding like Bowie.

The song is ok, not bad. It's not completely my cup of tea.

2 things:

1. He's not the lead singer
2. If you only think that song is "ok", what do you think is good?

I was disappointed that the lead singer wasn't an actual Grizzly Bear.

What the fuck?

Just re-read this now and realized I came across as an a-hole with this. I was actually trying to joke and didn't mean to be a jerk, Fitz. Hope you were not deeply hurt and/or offended. If so, I will punch myself as hard as I can in the stomach.


Good point, Laz. Who the hell do these lying SOBs think they are? I hate them now. HAAAAAAAAAAATTTTEEEE

Also, they neglected to jump off the stage and eat members of the audience. Totally unprofessional.

It leaked some time ago, my friend. I'm going to pick it up for sure. I have their first album but do not think it's as good as many others seem to think.

Also, I'm thrilled to see a Morphine mention or two. Every once in a while I would think to myself "I need to start a Morphine thread," and then would never do it.

I have Yes and Cure For Pain. Cure For Pain is really great.

the only issue with touchtune jukeboxes is that bars can't add their own music to them... thus springsteen and the beatles, who apparently don't have contracts with the people who put out the jukeboxes, are never available to play in bars anymore.

i miss my 3am badlands fix.

Really? Wow, that really blows.

My neighborhood old-timey tavern has a digital jukebox. A few years ago, I went in on St. Pat's day and was investigating the jukebox, when the semi-elderly owner came up and said, "Hey, you know how to use that! I can't figure it out." Then he gave me a ten dollar bill and told me to pick some Irish music. So I did.

The end.

I'm starting to wonder where you've actually been last week.

Remember, it's never too late to ask for help.
