VIDEO: Beach House "Heart of Chambers"

I'm going to their show tonight (3/01) at The Earl with the Papercuts, and to say that I'm extremely excited is a severe understatement. Their new album, "Devotion", is going to rank VERY high on my year-end list, count on it!

It's my birfday...

I'll be older tomorrow. And since I'll be older, I'll also be crankier and more selfish. That being said, I am planning on doing lots of fun things tomorrow and sitting in front of a computer is not on the list. I will not be posting tomorrow. I am selfish. Hooray for me. See you Thursday.

(Maybe I'll make up for it by posting on Friday. Depends on how tomorrow goes. ;-))

NEW OLD MUSIC: Velvet Underground "I'm Not a Young Man Anymore" (unreleased, Live in New York, 1967)

Apparently some bootlegger starting selling vinyl LPs on eBay earlier this month with the description, "1967 performance by the Velvet Underground at the Gymnasium in New York. WITH UNRELESED SONG,IM NOT A YOUNG MAN ANY MORE, AND 1ST TIME PLAYED SISTER RAY,ONLY 100 COPYS ON GREEN". Some fine peeps scooped up a copy of said bootleg vinyl, and ripped and posted the set in full, which includes this here previously unheard track, "I'm Not a Young Man Anymore" as well as the first ever peformance of "Sister Ray" (19 mins. long!). It's an excellent addition to the VU catalog if you ask me; I'm pretty partial to live's pretty when it's gritty. You can download the whole set from April 30, 1967, here.

1) I'm Not A Young Man Anymore (previously unreleased) - 7:18
2) Guess I'm Falling In Love - 4:18
3) I'm Waiting For The Man - 5:25
4) Run, Run, Run - 6:55
5) Sister Ray (1st time ever performed live) - 18:56
