Soundcheck Sessions Live From Studio M: GOOD OLD WAR

Before opening up last Thursday’s Xavier Rudd & Izintaba show at The Barrymore, Philadelphia’s Good Old War stopped by Studio M to give an intimate performance to a few lucky attendees.   Thankfully for those of us who couldn’t be there, videographer Ryan Heraly has allowed us to share some of his phenomenal recordings with you.  Enjoy!

If you like what you see, be sure to keep checking the site.  We’ll be posting much more from these truly special sessions in the future.  To view previous artists’ performances from Live At Studio M Sessions, head on over to Triple M’s website to browse the archives.  It’s beautiful stuff.

TALLEST MAN ON EARTH

Psst!  That’s not his real name…and he’s not even all that tall, but “Tallest Man On Earth” sure looks great on a concert poster!  Musicians love to get creative with their stage names, and there are a TON of great ones out there.  How many can you think of? Post your list in the comments and we’ll pick one lucky contestant to be added to the guest list for the show!

Matsson’s melodies are remarkably pliant, and while it’s understandable to be skeptical of another skinny dude with a mustache, a guitar, and a worn-out copy of The Anthology of American Folk Music, the more time you invest in Shallow Grave, the more you’ll realize how unusually memorable it is. Ultimately, Shallow Grave transcends comparison– which is saying an awful lot, given the popularity of its prototype– and Matsson is a natural-born folksinger, earnest, clever, and comforting.

Good Old War

There’s a line in Good Old War’s ‘We’ve Come A Long Way” that goes “I thought I’d learn to behave, but I don’t feel I’m acting my age.”  Is that supposed to be a bad thing?!  For those of you who refuse to grow up, let us know how you manage to stay young at heart.  Your response might just land you and a friend a spot on the guest list for the show!

Paul and Ringo will lead an alarmingly amazing lineup of musicians who will perform at the upcoming “Change Begins Within” benefit for the David Lynch Foundation.  The foundation “raises funds to teach one million at-risk children to meditate — giving them life-long tools to overcome stress and violence and promote peace and success in their lives.”

The Roots are settling into their new role as house band for Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.  Check out a video interview complete with rehearsal footage of the band here.

Britpop legend Jarvis Cocker has a new album called Further Complications due out in May.  Let’s hope he’ll make time for an American tour after he completes his European dates!

If you read the endlessly entertaining memoir Petal Pusher from Madison-native, rocker and author Laurie Lindeen (which you definitely should have), then you’ll be interested to know that her former band, Zuzu’s Petals, has a new retrospective album available from Rhino.

This year’s festival season is starting to take shape.  Pitchfork announced the first batch of confirmed acts for their July showcase, plus a brand new feature where ticket holders have the opportunity to pick the bands’ setlists.

Jack White and The KillsAlison Mosshart are so strangers to being members of fantastic musical duos, so it only seems natural that they would join forces to create a brand new band called The Dead Weather. Along with The Raconteurs‘ “other Jack” (Lawrence) and Queens of the Stone Age‘s Dean Fertita, White and Mosshart plan to release the band’s debut album in June. Get the full scoop here, and check out a video of their first single.

Congratulations are in order for Ryan Adams and Mandy Moore, who recently wed in a private ceremony in Georgia.
