The Curate's Egg 7.21.2008

Good...in parts.

I left the house today to play some music in the cavernous space next to Cafe Alma in downtown St.Petersburg. My band, Incredible Crisis, was invited to play as part of the opening of Carises Horn's art exhibition. I wish I had some examples of his paintings to share with you, but he seems to keep them off of the World Wide Tubes. His rigid line use nicely offsets the soft washiness of the watercolors he tends to employ in his work. Stop by Cafe Alma sometime in the next month to see what I mean.

As for our performance, we played as loud as we could. The acoustics of the alleyway made for some epic sounding vocals, but probably made us sound a lot less crisp than we would like.
Also, the Best Song Ever this week is...

"Gobbledigook", by Sigur Ros
It is wonderful to finally hear the music that elves listen to when they get freaky. "Gobbledigook", when compared to the grandiosity of most previous Sigur Ros releases, does come across as a club banger. It's uptempo. It's got a hook, although this hook is sung in some strange invented language, in an odd time signature, and possibly, though not necessarily, pitch-shifted several octaves above where it was recorded. It's true greatness is in it's immediacy. The vocals are close mic'd and the toms sound almost as though they're being struck by your hands as you're listening.

The rest of the new album is very beautiful, but there's something about hearing this song, their greatest departure of late from their move towards a more orchestral sound, right at the very beginning. Maybe they're showing us that they are still able to occasionally plant their feet on the ground.

Hello.

I've been a little lazy in my posting. Please forgive me. I've been working on music and other various what-nots. Speaking of which, I'd like to take a moment to plug a couple ventures of friends.


The Thickness of the Ghost
Ryan Costello, singer for The Oaks and an old friend from my college days, has started a blog called The Thickness of the Ghost.



It's a series of ruminations on some of Ryan's favorite vinyl. There are only two posts so far, but knowing Ryan, good things await us.


WOOT Computers
In other news, my computer was purchased from my buddy Wouter of WOOT Computers. He specializes in audio workstations and game computers. My machine has somewhat modest specs compared to some of his systems, a 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo processor with 2 GB of RAM, but it's dead quiet and in a beautiful rackmount case. Also, I've augmented my setup with some:


with which I've been doing some extra-curricular production for the radio show.
