Okay, I have moved my album review for this week to what I am really hoping is Friday. Scooter has flipped days and nights again and if Kahuna didn’t tell me what day it was I would be completely lost.
A few old and a few new tracks in the jukebox this week. I’m still annoyed the Takers broke up and no one told me. Then Devon and Chad went and made a new band (Snakehealers) and again no one told me.
The Bart Walker Band – Left Turn, Snakehealers – Roadside, Joshua Black Wilkins – Late Night Talks, The Delta Routine – Oh, No , Tyler Walker Band – Maybe We Were Wrong, and some Eden Burning with If You Want Me ’cause coffee alone is just not enough this morning.

Teen Girl Scientist Monthly – Summer Skin
So I am finally playing Dragon Age Awakenings and I just…see I am playing a mage. I have another mage in the party. We both have enough healing magic that everywhere we step should burst into glorious, bubbly life. I have (at last count) enough healing poultices and injury kits to open my own hospital – and yet, every stupid NPC we come across has an injury and instead of my being able to heal it they just die.
Seriously Bioware? I can bring my entire party back from the dead but I can’t set a broken leg before the dude dies?
Shiny new tracks in the juke this week by Nick and the Ovorols - Try Me, Todd Dorigo - Alive, Cobalt Cranes – Head in the Clouds, Bobby Long – Devil Moon, and Josephine Oniyama – Portrait. I also have older track from Frank Turner called The Road.
Brooklyn-based Arc & Stones are in the featured video spot this week with Silence, from their soon-to-be released EP, Arc & Stones.
Brewed Southern Pecan coffee this morning. The house smells like pecan pie.
New tracks in the jukebox this week. I’ve also posted links to all the jukebox songs within the post for anyone pulling the blog on feed. Unless it says differently these are all linked from Soundcloud.
Precious Bryant passed away this weekend. The Music Maker Relief Foundation has a nice article about her on their website. Check out Fool Me Good from her 2002 release of the same title over in the jukebox.
The featured vid this week is Green Lights by Eastern Rift off their new EP Left of the Mark. You can check out more stuff from the band on their Facebook page or over on their Reverbnation page.
Stacey from the official SXSW site listed over a hundred more bands added to the 2013 line up. She also included a link to the list of around 1000 bands scheduled to perform this year. I noticed Lee Bains III and the Glory Fires, BOY and Frank Turner on the latest addition.
Tony Porter from Music That Isn’t Bad reviewed The Amends new release, What We Could Be.
Ninebullets.net put up the December podcast, while Charlie, Mike and Bryan added posts with their best albums of the year.
Ryan Bingham tossed up a new video because he knows I get twitchy if I go too long with nothing from him on the blog.
That’s pretty much it for this week. I’ve had a cold so I mainly listened to some new music, played Skylanders and coughed. If you have a post from your blog you want added to the list just shoot me an email (guitarkit at gmail.com) or leave your post addy in a comment below.
Sooo…daytime is very…bright.
Having finally eased Scooter back into sleeping at night, I give my brain another day or so until it back in working order. Until then, here are some “things Kit learned while watching middle of the night television“. You have been warned.
For some bizarre reason all the Scorpions videos on VH1 are three times louder than any other video being shown, shoulder pads in women’s shirts and dresses will NEVER stop being painful to watch and there are actually two (2) different shows about guys that build and install aquariums. As a bonus, I am also addicted to Storage Wars.
The featured vid is the shiny new release from the Amends, A Certain Speed. You all can pick it up for free over on Soundcloud.
I intended to add all new songs to the sidebar but my connection is so bad I can’t get them all switched. I did manage to add Slow Trains by the Anaesthetics.
