It’s All Rock & Roll to Me – Part 2

rock n roll

 

I mentioned yesterday that I have days at work when I barely do more than turn on my computer, but then there are those days when I’m in front of it for 8 to 10 hours. BMFBV1D1 & BMFBV1D2 are my soundtracks for days like that.

There is a little of something here for just about every musical taste so Enjoy!

Everything Is Nice

With Hockey’s Stanley Cup Finals relentlessly grinding on I decided a nice three disc collection of Indie and Alternative rock should keep everyone occupied until someone finally hoists The Cup.

Let’s Go Bruins!!


Just a side note.

You’ll notice that the songs in each disc are tagged differently. That wasn’t my intent. I had been using EAC version 1.03, but on occasion while ripping a disc ripping would stop and I’d get the following error message:

Unhandled Exception at Compression 4515—>Assign Range

After a lot of research but with no concrete solutions I’ve gone back to using the zipped version of EAC 0.99pb. Anyone who uses or as used EAC knows that configuring it, while not overly difficult, also requires some tweaking to achieve the results you’d like.

That being said, Enjoy the Music and Let’s Go Bruins!!

Summer Re-runs: DIY

I began this blog in 2006, and my fourth post, Various-artists-DIY, has been one of my most popular posts, popular enough that I’ve updated it three times.

I noticed last week that it had recently generated a considerable amount of interest, but because it hasn’t been updated since 2008 all the links were dark. That is no longer a problem.

You can find Anarchy in the UK, The Modern World, Teenage Kicks, Starry Eyes and Blank Generation here, here and here. We’re Desperate and Shake It Up are here. Come Out and Play is here, and Mass. Ave. The Boston Scene can be found here.

Fall and the beginning of a new season are almost here so enjoy these re-runs while they last.

D.I.Y.
ANARCHY IN THE UK THE MODERN WORLD TEENAGE KICKS

STARRY EYES BLANK GENERATION WE’RE DESPERATE

COME OUT AND PLAY SHAKE IT UP MASS.AVE.

Various Artists

In 1994, while still in high school, Matt Lunsford and Darcie Knight started the publication, Polyvinyl Press, to cover the burgeoning independent music scene in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois. As the magazine grew so did it’s connections to label-less artists. The July 1995 issue of the magazine included a split 7″ EP with Back of Dave and Walker. And so a label is born. Their first major releases came following their signing of “emo”/post hardcore rockers Braid in 1998, which with the subsequent national exposure allowed the label to work with a wider repertoire of artists.

Polyvinyl finally achieved mainstream success following the release of Montreal’s The Sunlandic Twins in 2005 . The success of that album,

which produced three successful singles and national television and media exposure

also increased the visibility of all Polyvinyl’ s artists to the point that in 2008 the label opened a San Francisco branch. No longer confining themselves to local bands, the label currently boasts a roster of 21 bands, including international artists like Australia’s Architecture in Helsinki and Norway’s Casiokids.

With rare and exclusive tracks from Aloha, matt pond PA and Pele, 2001’s ReDirection documents the label’s first six years and Lunsford’s and Knight’ efforts to expose “independent artists” to a far wider audience.
