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.
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.
I found the last package of Christmas Pocky!!!!! *squee*
Scooter found me shortly after the Pocky discovery so now I have to share. *pouts*
From time to time I glance through the stats area of my blog to see what brings people over here. Lately, Frank Turner and Jonathan Rundman have been showing up on pretty much a daily basis. Unfortunately for those hunting, my entries about them are pretty much just tossing off a song lyric.
So here are some links for both musicians that actually have…er, information on them.
Frank’s website at frank-turner.com. Blog, tour dates, vids, a forum you can join and a store to buy Frank’s music.
Merlin Jobst interviewed Frank Turner this past July over on Little Sparrow:
Jobst – When it comes to your major influences, do you feel more indebted to British or American music?
Turner – Probably more to American music actually, although I’ve been making a conscious effort to find out more about traditional English music recently. That said, the big three for me are Neil Young, Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen. And then there’s Townes Van Zandt…”
Finally, for reviews of his new release England Keep My Bones and general info check out ninebullets.net as the writers onsite are big fans. Frank is also a semi-staple on the weekly ninebullets radio show.
Jonathan’s website at jonathanrundman.com. News, tour dates, music, vids and blog.
Hal Bogerd from No Depression reviews Kaivama by Rundman and Sarah Pajunen:
I’ve been a fan of Jonathan Rundman’s music since a double dose of review discs landed on my desk over at HickoryWind. Jonathan’s previous albums were filled with hooked filled gems, more power-pop and rock than Americana or roots. On their self-titled disc Kaivama (Salt Lady Music, 2011), Jonathan and Sarah team up to shift gears and explore their shared Finnish heritage…”
Pop over to No Depression for the entire review.
Finally,check out Jonathan on Facebook.
