Gotta love pretapes! Been through my share. Now as I await my release with two more feeds to take in, I figured I’d set up some summer tunes for your weekend pleasure as I do my own thing. Can only imagine the stories about to be had…by all of us.
Surprisingly, I still don’t own this record. Joshua Radin’s music has been a major part of my adult life that almost every single record finds it’s way into my world. Will always remember singing along in a sold out Hollywood Palladium as he performed some of my favorite anthems to a lukewarm crowd back in 2011.
His new independent release — ‘Wax Wings‘ (Out now!) — is much more uplifting than his last. Still haunting. Always beautiful. Joshua’s acoustic romantic folk rock was made for sunny holiday weekends like this. Songs for sunlight poking through living room blinds. Wind breezy. Empty blue sky, riding with the top down. ’Wax Wings’ will keep these stories as lasting memories tucked away in your head.
Lose yourself in the moments. For this is Joshua Radin at his best.

A ‘Dixie Chick’ flys solo, #afterthebreak…
Yes, John. There can only be one. Considering this retribution for the not featuring Mr. Mayer a few sessions ago b/c the track was over used. Battle Studies was my jam when it dropped in 2009. Took me awhile to fall in love with the whole thing…for various singular tracks ranged from awesome to holy shit! Yes, my rankings can be little fucked. Still more than right. The weeping guitar really steals this track. Enjoy.
Had a Guerrilla Night last night. Aren’t you proud? Been awhile since I jammed pack my evening with Belgian Beer & bittersweet / lovely tunes at my favorite venue / bar. The Beer, a blonde, was one of the best I’d had the pleasure of drinking at the blue palms. If the show didn’t follow most likely would’ve had more beer reviews than concert ones. Here’s the drink in question:
Easy readers. Just a picture. Doesn’t it look an amazing tho? Siri how to you say “fuck yeah” in Dutch? Oh it’s “Fuck Yeah”? lol
After my dinner at the bar I joined a long time friend, colleague, and music producer extraordinaire at our homecourt — The Troubadour — to watch a newly freed Dixie Chick fly solo with BEN HARPER! Still geeking out. Yes. Pleasant surprise. Mr. Harper held a place on my music artist Bucket List. Can mark that off now. Here’s a animated gif of Ben killing it…made by me!:
Natalie Maine performed her for the handful of LA based suits & ties under the iconic Blue Lights. She is on the road of releasing her 2013 solo debut entitled ‘Mother’. Long time Dixie fans will be happy by this reinvention of her country-blues-Grace Potter siren style. A formal write up is coming as soon as my life stops. Which hopefully will be in a day or so.
Big shout out to my friend for the last minute invite. If I could imagine my life in a Bourdain style, She would be one of those experts that are featured on a late night adventure. My goal is to build a roster of those contacts by December. Only thing now is to try to pay her back.
It’s Thursday Pay check day. Also, dubbed WING NIGHT! Stories & music coming soon…oh and our 4th Showcase is on Saturday. Stoked!
