Been looking forward to this show for quite some time now. Jessie Ware + MS MR at the Crocodile in Seattle WA. Haven’t been to a show in a while so it will be nice just to get out and hear live music at a minimum and when seeing Jessie Ware live is just a bonus, you know you have a good night ahead of you. That is not the only bonus though, MS MR are opening for Ms. Ware and I just love that track ‘Hurricane’ they released last year. You can here that track HERE. Also it looks like they are set to release their debut LP next month.
Should be a good night for sure. The ‘cherry on top’ would be watching the Sounders pull out a victory in the CCL semifinals vs Santos Lagunas. Now that would be amazing…. But I digress…
Jessie Ware + MS MR + GF + Crocodile(s) + Seattle = A solid Tuesday evening

Angelo Badalamenti - Twin Peaks Theme
I woke up this morning, took a shower, made some breakfast, put on my work clothes, kissed my girl goodbye, hoped in my car, turned on the radio which was playing Angelo Badalamenti’s ‘Twin Peaks Theme’ smiled and thought to myself this might be the best start to a work week I can remember.
I am confident this week and for that matter this month will be a very good one. Its my last few weeks as a 20 something… I am staring 30 in the face. My response to that. BRING IT! This month will be chalk full of good times. Going to see Jessie Ware at the Crocodile on Tuesday night. Have a good friends 30th birthday party on the books for the weekend. Hopefully I will get up at least one more day of skiing in at Alpental this weekend. Headed to the potato state for my future brother in-laws Bachelor Party on the 20th then to Victoria the with my girlfriends family the weekend after. To close out my 20’s I will be going to the rainiest place in the lower 48, the Hoh Rainforest. I chose this location because these trees are the oldest living things around these parts and I want to feel young when I turn 30. Here is to a great month.

—Parking Lot Blues
ESG - Parking Lot Blues
Before this morning I don’t know that I had ever heard a track by the 1980’s NYC group ESG. I was searching for something new to listen too and came across the 1983 LP ‘Come Away With ESG’ and my initial reaction to the find can be summed up with one work : Jackpot.
If you haven’t heard this album yet, do yourself a favor and track it down. It was so far ahead of its time that its almost hard for me to believe that it was released in the early 80’s. The album is a bare bones blue print for the fusion of rock / funk / dance / pop ect. that would continue for the next 30 years. It is also hard to believe that this album was the product of three sisters and a bassist from the South Bronx and that is was recorded in a small studio above the Radio City Music Hall. How they managed to make it sound so raw and dirty being so close to one of the most grandiose venues in the US is beyond me.
I went over to whosampled.com and searched for ESG and it came back with 269 credited samples! That is a HUGE number for a band that broke up after only 1 LP. They remind me of a lot of bands from the early 2000’s most notably The Rapture who’s classic track ‘House of Jealous Lovers’ sounds like an almost direct continuation of ESG’s sound. If you like The Rapture, Gang of Four or good funk influenced dance rock track ‘Come Away With ESG’ down ASAP. You wont be disappointed.
