New Find

October 14, 2008

Why am I just finding out about British singer Adele? Okay, maybe I’m jumping the gun a bit since I’ve only heard a few tracks so far on her album “19” (she was only 19 when she debuted! geez! I’m 19!) but I’m liking it. I’m having a bit of trouble describing her style. Think Amy Winehouse not on crack and singing about happier things. Her voice reminds me a bit of Feist and Yael Naim except maybe with more…soul? Which I like, although I feel like some tracks would be more suitable to a thinner voice.

She was just in New York in September. *Sigh*  And she’ll be on SNL this week.

I don’t think I can go to any of the concerts I wanted to go to this year.

Chairlift | 10/18 | Bowery | 9 PM | $15. Opening with Holy Ghost! for The Juan Maclean.
Yael Naim | 10/27 | Webster | 7 PM | $25.
Kaki King / The Mountain Goats | 11/09 | Webster | 8 PM | $23.
Sondre Lerche | 11/20 | Bowery | $22.

ALBUMSCONCERTS

September 21, 2008

I made a mental note about a month ago to write about this but forgot about it until now. Oops.

BUT GREGORY AND THE HAWK HAS A NEW ALBUM COMING OUT OCTOBER 7TH CALLED MOENIE AND KITCHI!!!! So soon but not soon enough.

I first discovered Gregory and the Hawk on YouTube when I stumbled across her cover of Beyonce’s “Irreplaceable,” lulz. But no really, I’ve yet to hear a song by her I don’t like. Think light and airy and guitary and beautiful.  Kind of like Joanna Newsom, minus the complete suck.  Her lyrics are like poetry!!!

So I am really looking forward to Moenie and Kitchi. Hehe, how cute does that sound.

I wonder if it’s been leaked already. I mean, not that I would go looking for it or anything. ESPECIALLY SINCE COLUMBIA SUSPENDED MY NETWORK ACCESS FOR SOMETHING I DOWNLOADED A MONTH AGO, AT HOME IN GEORGIA.

In other exciting news, I will have another chance to see Yael Naim! Seeing as no one wanted to go with me to her free concert this past summer. This time I will have to pay. Monday, October 27th. 7 PM doors. Webster. $25. I will find someone to go with this time.

ANYWAY.  Here’s Gregory and the Hawk.

The guy’s laugh at the end is kind of creepy.
BUT WHY IS SHE SO CUTE. I could eat her.
