MusicNOW Festival 2011 If you live in or near Cincinnati Ohio, this is a fantastic music festival for you – MusicNOW Festival 2011.  I’m officially jealous, as I won’t be able to make it out this year.  I went in 2007 when I still lived in Cincinnati, and it was amazing.  Trust me, I thought about going back for this year’s line-up… The National / Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond) / Sharon Van Etten / Richard Reed Parry / Little Scream / yMusic / Owen Pallett / Meg … Read More

Silverchair/Daniel Johns short film + free music from Owen Pallett

22nd Dec 10 (Wed) 2 comments

Two unrelated music new tidbits…

First off, Daniel Johns (frontman for Aussie rock trio Silverchair) will be part of a short film that received a grant under the 2010 Screen NSW Emerging Filmmakers Fund.  Josh Wakely, an experienced actor and writer and an emerging director, will have the opportunity to make My Mind’s Own Melody, a short musical drama he has written with Daniel Johns.  http://www.chairpage.com/news

Second, Owen Pallett just put out a free demo EP on soundcloud.  It’s instrumental except for a spot vocal appearance from Shara Worden (aka My Brightest Diamond).  It is delightful.  Get it while it’s still a free download.  For other great Shara Worden guests spots… well, the Clogs record (with Sufjan Stevens guest spots, too) and Sarah Kirkland Snider‘s Penelope concept album rank high this year.

Yeah, my “Best Of” lists are still in the works.  It’s still 2010; so I’m not late. (I hate it how some people start putting out their lists in October… argh…)
