    Elbow are bloody well amazing. Truly God Tier.


    I was gonna see Flogging Molly today, but that fell through, due to only learning about the gig yesterday.

    Anyways, the band that opened for Elbow was called Glasser, and they were pretty good, especially when the non-singer guy went and played the drums, and layered his drumming over his drumming, to make extra-special drumming.

    Basically, take that song, and make the drumming thunderous, and make everything else also way louder. That's what they were like live.

    I went to my annual Celtic Festival last weekend and got quite thoroughly excited about a few groups-
    Emily Smith: She's been one of my favourites since her most recent album released, I got to see her 4 separate times this weekend so that was excellent. She's the best Scottish trad singer out there right now and is quite grounded in Scottish traditional culture and whatnot. Here's one of her songs.
    The Young Dubliners: Always good, always energetic. Song.
    Whiskey and Stitches: This is a new one, a local band that apparently formed recently. Since they're new, it's hard to find a good video of them. They played the hardest Fields of Athenrye I've ever heard, and it was quite good. This is the closest I can get, but it still doesn't match the sheer intensity I heard from them this weekend. They had a real crunchy bass, and their guitars and bazoukie drove hard.
    There were many other good ones, but, uhh, yeah. Emily Smith. She's amazing.

    FIFA 12 is for Hipsters and I love that. It's reminded me of the glory that is bands like The Strokes, The Naked and Famous, and CSS, to say nothing of cool new bands like Pint Shot Riot, The Medics, and Kasabian that I wasn't very familiar with.

    I am also now in love with Tying Tiffany.

    What songs do you really like by Ozric Tentacles? I have Sploosh and I'm looking for more in that kind of vein.

    You say that like it's a bad thing

    So, I've been in an instrumental mood lately. What are some of your favorite instrumentals? Preferably from artists that don't exclusively do instrumentals, but bands such as Pelican and Laura are in fact awesome.

    My personal favorites include but aren't limited to:
    Hate Eternal - Faceless One
    Jethro Tull - Bouree
    Voltaire - Tempest

    I just posted an entire set from local group Exquisite Corps. Amazing manic energy from this 6-piece, acoustic guitar, drums, bass, cello, 2 violins.
    I have my own TV show featuring local musicians performing live. YouTube page with full episodes and outtake clips here.
    I also have another YouTube page with local live music clips I've filmed on my own.

    Possibly my favourite instrumental is Orion from Metallica, believe it or not.

    Well, that and Agalloch has a few brilliant instrumentals. Here's one.

    I'm not hugely knowledgeable on Ozric Tentacles (I'm still only getting into them myself) but if you like Sploosh then checking out the album it's from (strangeitude) would seem a reasonable starting point. If I get through their back catalogue (ridiculously large) I'll get back to you on it.

    In terms of instrumentals, most of my favourite songs are instrumental. Probably because I need music to sleep, and vocals tend to make that harder for me.

    Also, I've recently realized that all my favourite music is very repetitive- my favourite song ever has a four-on-the-floor beat and builds up by layering unchanging riffs over that.
    You can shout it from the roof-tops, you'll be preaching to the choir.
    And you better get started on this funeral pyre, and one day I will truly set myself on fire so you can see how dim my light is.
    So you can see how dim is my life

    Argh, guitar wanking...while I appreciate that it takes a LOT of talent to do that, I just can't stand how it sounds.

    One of my favourite instrumentals of all time would be this one: Lesson no. 1 for electric guitar by Glenn Branca.
