The Devil, You + Me

The Notwist's first album in six years--The Devil, You + Me--drops today in the US. Back in my WRRG days, Kurt Greisch put the amazing "Nothing Like You" on a comp tape for me and life has never been the same.

Notwist Retrospective:

Nothing Like You live from The Notwist (1990)

The Incredible Change of Our Alien from Nook (1992)

Torture Day from 12/Loup EP (1997)

Chemicals from Shrink (1998)

Moron from Shrink (1998)

One With the Freaks from Neon Golden (2003)

Pick up the Phone from Neon Golden (2003)

Bizzare Off the Rails video and the making of Off the Rails recording from Neon Golden (2003)

On/Off the Record Neon Golden documentary trailer (2004)

Good Lies from The Devil, You + Me (2008)

Perfect Speed from 13 & God, a Notwist and Themselves collaboration

Soft Alias another 13 & God song

They live!

Quite possibly the crappiest recording to ever give me goosebumps.

Emmy is STILL h-a-w-t

Age is irrelevant to the ever-hot Emmylou Harris. Quite the singer/songwriter she, as well.

Exile in Lizville

So Liz Phair is doing a limited number of live shows where she plays her classic Exile in Guyville in its entirety. While Guyville is one of my favorite albums ever, Liz hasn't done much for me since. The debut is raw and beautifully unrefined, while her subsequent recordings are--in my generally snobby opinion--increasingly overproduced and unoriginal.

In any event, I have tickets in hand for the San Francisco show on the 23rd along with mild hopes that I'm not dissapointed. Whatever she does, I am fairly sure she'll be better than THIS guy:

An...umm...interesting cover of Liz Phair's "Fuck and Run." Ah YouTube.

Liz Phair Exile in Guyville shows:
6.23 San Francisco, CA - Fillmore
6.24 Chicago, IL - Vic Theatre
6.25 New York, NY - Hiro Ballroom
6.26 New York, NY - Hiro Ballroom
