I am struck, once again, by what an amazing live band The Avett Brothers are.
Tag Archives: live
Yes, Wilco (The Album) was a great album all the way through. But even so, not one of the other eleven songs came anywhere near being as sublimely amazing as “Country Disappeared”. Given the fact that it is Wilco we are speaking about the track jumps up to a higher level still when played live, which is case in this Blogotheque-video too.
So, King of Limbs (I suppose no further introduction to the album is necessary, deeming from the massive buzz that surrounded it during the previous week) has been out there for four days now, and I have still managed to avoid listening to everything but a couple of songs from it. Not that I am unexcited, but I think I want to wait for the physical release. For no real reason whatsoever, really.
While waiting, I compiled a “best of Radiohead” thingy. And then I converted it to a “dream setlist” thingy instead, since I have never seen the band live. It looks like this:
Radiohead: the dream setlist
“I Might Be Wrong”
“Bulletproof..I Wish I Was”
“Climbing Up the Walls”
“Jigsaw Falling Into Place”
“Fake Plastic Trees”
“Where I End and You Begin”
“Street Spirit (Fade Out)”
“Like Spinning Plates”
“How to Disappear Completely”
“I just can’t… I can’t do this song, I’ve played it too many times. I’ve just played it hundreds of times and I’m just sick of it and I just can’t play it. I’m sorry.”
For the second time in four days, Beach House is the subject of this segment. Instead of spreading christmas joy with their holiday creations, this time they have been guesting that wonderful red-headed Irish-descented talk show host. Giving an enchanting performance of “10 Mile Stereo” from this year’s critically acclaimed Teen Dream (as Conan puts it, it “appears on numerous year-end lists as one of the best albums of 2010”), Beach House proves that they are one of the most potent live bands in their genre.
