RANDOM START: Far ‘Bury White’

I don’t have the time or energy to write anything of real substance, but Far is awesome and I still love this record.  That is all.

Random Start: Far, “I Like It”

trawlingthegrey:


After a YouTube search for “far i like it” directed me to pages upon pages of that godawful Far East Movement G6 song, I wasn’t able to find an album version of “I Like It”, and had to settle for a live version from the Troubador in 2009. The audio quality is not the greatest, but it’ll have to do. It beats the hell out of the alternative. O__o

I was at this show and am almost certain the guy that filmed this (along with every other song they played that night) was a few people in front of me.  Hopefully he watched them when he got home and got to see what he missed.

RANDOM START: FAR ‘AT NIGHT WE LIVE’

Pre-order

WARNING: I’d suggest starting the video and letting it play in the background so you can hear the song, but not actually watching it.  Nobody wants to start their Friday off with tears.

From time to time I disregard the purpose of Random Start and make a completely non-random song choice.  Today is one of those days.  In honor of my impending trip to Troubadour in West Hollywood to see Far and Dead Country this evening, I’m choosing a new Far track called ‘At Night We Live’ off of the new album of the same name.  This particular track is the instant grat. track you get when you pre-order the album, which you should do. Now.  These guys recently reformed and are putting out a new record on Tuesday through Vagrant.  I was lucky enough to get the chance to see them at Troubadour back in Oct when they were playing a few shows as Hot Little Pony. I wasn’t into them enough back in the late 90s to have ever seen them live, so that was my first Far show.  Jonah is the kind of front man I love.  Active, energetic and highly entertaining.  Super excited to see them again tonight.

I’m equally as excited to see Dead Country and recommend checking them out if you haven’t heard of them.  I’ve been devouring their EP lately but haven’t seen them live yet.  I’m expecting good things.

Random aside: What happened to the spell check button?  I’ve now been relegated to manual proof-reading and spell-checking.  wtf.
