Got my advanced copy yesterday and it's officially released today.

It's a great soul/ska mix that was years in the making...the production is even done as to make it sound like an old Motown record from the 1960's. Awsome stuff.
My only biatch is that it's a digipak and I hate those cheap, cardboard things.

When me and Rick (DS49) were watching the draft, he played some Pietasters for me and I was rather surprised to find myself enjoying it.

I hear a lot of people say the same thing.....glad you like it. The disc is solid from top to bottom and if any band deserved a break...it's them.

Waves can be checked out on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/All-Day-Pietas...7673339&sr=8-1

I'm spinning Mew's "...Glass handed kites..." right now.

I havent been able to get over it yet. They are a nice change of pace in a world of stale reproductions.

I also re-bought and am listening to Sunny Day Real Estate's "How it feels to be something on".

Other recent spins:

Paul Simon "Rhythm of the Saints"
Southpaw Preachers "Contender"
Rich Mullins "The World as Best as I Can Remember It"
Mew "Frengers"

More pimping of my Boys:

The Pietasters
All Day

“This record is a version of what a van ride with us would be like,” says The Pietasters’ bassist and songwriter Jorge Pezzimenti of their soul roots, rock and reggae-inspired new album, All Day.

Stephen Jackson, the band’s founder, vocalist and co-songwriter seconds his bandmate’s review of the fresh-baked tracks. “We’ve gotten a lot more comfortable in the studio. I think it’s evident in the vibe of this album.”

All Day, The Pietasters’ first album of new tracks in five years, captures the high energy, brotherly camaraderie and attention to detail on which they’ve built their rock-steady name as an explosive live attraction.

Traveling the miles along a star-kissed path, the first break came early for D.C.’s ska darlings, when they landed a 1992 tour opening for ska originals, Bad Manners. In 1997, Rancid’s Tim Armstrong signed them to Hellcat/Epitaph where they recorded two albums with producer Brett Gurewitz (Bad Religion): the genre-defining Willis (SPIN Magazine called it “An equal opportunity dancehall crasher — part ‘60s keg rock, part 2Tone and part Motown”) and Awesome Mix Tape #6 (CMJ noted it for “lacing a Stax shout-out feel with Caribbean rhythms”). The soul-charged Turbo was released in 2002 by Fueled by Ramen. The Pietasters shared bills with NOFX and Less Than Jake on the epic ’98 and ’99 Warped Tours, and followed with a stateside run with punk legend Joe Strummer Three years later, they worked as James Brown’s back-up band for one surreal evening (All Day was produced by James Brown’s engineer, Todd Harris). Not bad for a bunch of guys who started out as a teenaged underground band from D.C.

“We may not be rich but we can claim some amazing experiences,” says Jackson. It’s that experience, combined with a commitment to expand beyond their humble beginnings as a ska band, which are at the foundation of All Day, a journey through the swingin’ ‘60s and the soulful ‘70s that sounds right on time.

While The ‘tasters have always favored a little bit o’soul, they have not left their signature skank or die style behind for All Day. While the song “Change My Ways” may ring with notes of Northern Soul, “Don’t Wanna Know” riffs on the high-stepping style of an earlier era.

“I’m a total music nerd,” says Pezzimenti. “For example, ‘Fozzy Pt. I’ is supposed to be a Muscle Shoals-y or Stax kind of thing. I made sure there was just one guitar track like Steve Cropper would do it. I wanted to limit ourselves, like they did it back then.”

Meanwhile, the very specific blueprint for sound left by the esteemed Jamaican label, Trojan Records, is what fuels songs like “Late Night Call,” “Dream of You” and “G to F.” “We’re very influenced by that rocksteady and early reggae sound that in turn was playing off of the soul music coming from America,” explains Pezzimenti.

Backing Jackson on vocals and Pezzimenti on bass and vocals are Toby Hansen/guitar and vocals, Jon Darby/keyboards and Rob Steward/drums. And what would a soulful band be without its singing horn section? They are: Alan Makranczy/sax, Jeremy Roberts/trombone and Carlos Linares/trumpet.

Back in 1990, a slightly different line up of The Pietasters intermingled with other punks, mods and skinheads in their area’s small music scene. “This was in the days before the Internet,” says Jackson. “There were fanzines and we mailed cassettes around but we had no pretensions of getting a record deal--that was so beyond our expectations.”

Originally influenced by second wave ska bands like The Specials and the third wave’s Mighty Mighty Bosstones, and punk acts like Minor Threat and the bands on D.C.’s Dischord label, Jackson says they took a friend’s sound advice: “If you like someone, listen to what they listen to.”

The Pietasters’ debut album of traditional 2Tone-inspired songs arrived in 1993, and the more polished Oolooloo followed. Later that decade, the band’s influences opened to such Jamaican institutions as Trojan and Lee “Skratch” Perry, which broadened to soul and its subgenres. “All along we had friends who were DJs sending us rare soul mixes,” Jackson says.

Their deep musical education served the band well when it came time to tour with Strummer: as one member circulated out, Pezzimenti jumped in at a moment’s notice. “It was daunting at first,” he says of his time as the new kid. But his entry marked the next phase for the already legendary band. Next on the list of epic adventures: a shot with James Brown.

“When we were asked to play with James Brown in D.C. we’d just gotten back from a European tour,” remembers Jackson. “Just by coincidence, every night after our shows we’d been listening to James Brown Live at the Apollo, and the guys in the band knew all the music...a couple of nights later, James Brown was standing outside of the little studio where we were rehearsing! The next night, we were on stage in front of 25,000 people at the MCI Center—-with James Brown.” Jeff Watkins, JB’s sax player, joined The Pietasters in the studio for All Day’s “Anj Gil” and “Oolooloo.”

One of Jackson and Pezzimenti’s favorite tracks on the new album is their Rasta-fied version of the‘70s radio hit, “Listen to Her Heart,” by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. “We had all kinds of debate about whether or not to do the song and then we went to see Tom Petty and it was the first song he played. We decided it was a sign,” says Jackson.

The Pietasters have been served well by the signs they’ve encountered along the road during their 17 years as a band. As the sun comes up on All Day, the experience and commitment that defines The Pietasters as an entity should find friends among the faithful as well as to first-timers to the ska-soul sound.

“Allow me to toot our own collective horn when I say this,” offers Pezzimenti. “I think we made a record that will sound equally good to a music nerd and to a random dude listening. We just took our time in the studio and tried to put our own spin on the sounds we love to listen to.”

I got a band called the Spill Canvas recently. A little Emo, but still not bad. Singers got a good voice. Also an R&B singer named Bruce Hathcock, who is pretty good. Hes the lead guitarist in his band too.

Darrell lived adjacent to me for awhile. He and his brother and their handlers were always friendly. It's hard to believe that some sick schmuck killed that guy in the middle of a performance.

Outside of the new Pietasters offering and Yo La Tengo's May I Sing With Me, I've been mellowing out with one of my all time fave albums:

Landau can be a bit wanktastic sometimes.

He's a great player though.

Are you kidding me?

When it comes to tone, taste, phrasing, and seldom playing a note you have to apologize for, Landau is the king.

That's why everybody and his mother has hired him to play on their records.

You don't become king of the hill in L.A. by being "wanktastic."

1) Go to youtube and look at a video.

2) You'll see two fields to the right of the video - "URL" and "embed."

3) Just left click once on the "embed" field and the enclosed code will automatically highlight.

4) Copy and paste.
