Toad the Wet Sprocket – ‘All You Want’ (2011)

6th Apr 11 (Wed) Leave a comment

Toad the Wet Sprocket broke up in 1998.  In its ashes, Glen Phillips‘ solo career and Lapdog was born.  Glen has put out a number of solo albums and side-projects, Lapdog put out two great albums, and “Toad” has since gotten back together on occasion to tour.  Well, due to being signed to a major label, they never really owned those recordings that they made back in the day.  Enter… All You Want

ALL YOU WANT is us reclaiming our past for ourselves. While making this album, we got to look under the hood at the parts we’d written so long ago, pull apart some of the magic of the originals, and in some cases, update arrangements, tempos or attitudes that we thought we could improve upon with the benefit of a little hindsight.

The process of recording this music again brought us closer together as a band, and closer to the songs that we’ve lived with for so long. These songs still mean a lot to us, and we hope our fans enjoy listening to them as much as we enjoyed making them.
-Dean, Glen, Randy, and Todd

The album will be available for sale exclusively at the band’s website and shows prior to a formal release date later this spring via both physical and digital retail outlets.

Steven Wilson’s TAPE EXPERIMENTS 1985-1986

9th Nov 10 (Tue) Leave a comment

Porcupine Tree frontman Steven Wilson is always putting out something… this week, he announced he’s making available Tape Experiments 1985-1986 on vinyl via Tone Float.

It was originally intended as a pre-order bonus to his Insurgentes dvd movie release (but withdrawn in favor of a much more recent piece of music), Steven Wilson decided to make his two and four track tape experiments from 1985/1986 available via Soundcloud (free legal download link).

Those tracks are now being released as 180 gram black vinyl album, entitled Tape Experiments 1985/1986.  In tie with the flaws of the original grimy cassettes they were taken from, the album is designed with the 70s vinyl bootleg records in mind (and in particular the legendary takrl label), complete with an insert cover.  The release date is November 29, 2010, and the album is available exclusively from the Tonefloat store.

CocoRosie on Daytrotter

I just got into CocoRosie via a recent KEXP in-studio session.  They have a great mix of rock, hip-hop, chamber music… similar to that of Emily Wells.  Anyway, the few websites that aren’t RSS feed-able that made it to my “must check every day” list… Daytrotter is great, and they just hit us with a live in the studio session with CocoRosie
