Scene Not Heard 05.02.09

Had another show on UtahFM.org, the show is going well, trying to find more time to post here! I have some great Dan Deacon vids to share (hence why I played him back to back on the show) as well as a review of the show from last week.

Yes I played Miley Cyrus, the Lauper version is one of my favorite songs ever. Miley does it alright. Check it out sometime if you like the original.

An Evening With Jim James, M. Ward, & Conor Oberst

February 20, 2004, Pantages Theatre – Minneapolis, MN

M. Ward, fine. Jim James, cool. Conor Oberst, inspired and inspiring.
This whole show is pretty good overall, it feels very intimate and personal and the recording is quite nice if a little quiet. Good is good but the Conor Oberst solo stuff is something else, something special, something great.

Typically the live versions of the songs from I’m Wide Awake feel like they are missing something because they are, Emmylou Harris. This performance is not lacking and just might feature the best version of One Foot In Front of the Other ever recorded.

So, take a listen to this gem, if you like it check out the rest of the show which is featured for free download over at AnAquariumDrunkard.

  •       Conor Oberst - One Foot In Front of the Other
If you like this show let me know, I have a ton of Bright Eyes/C. Oberst bootlegs, one of my favorites is from the 400 Bar about a year in advance of his last self-titled release. Stripped down versions of those songs sounded even more pretty than the eventual album recordings.

LivingEars Podcast Volume Three

It’s live and better than ever.

There is just so much damn music coming across our desk it’s impossible to fit it all in! Let’s see… keep an ear out for some brand new Conor Oberst, my .3 second remix of an LCD favorite and don’t be surprised if the Sebastien Tellier song at the end puts you in the mood. You might want to wait and listen to that track when you’re with your special someone…
