EAR FARM Presents... at Sin-é - 29 June, 2006

Last night, EAR FARM sponsored a show at Sin-é. Unfortunately, the skies opened up and there was a downpour right before the first band started. Also, there were a bunch of other great shows going on in NYC and my BYP friends held the third Beg Yr Pardon last night so there were definitely a few reasons for people to not show up. Point being the turnout was pretty good, all things considered, and the night overall was a total success. See, the four bands were all flat out EXCELLENT. More than a few people talked to me about how much they liked (not just one, but ALL of) the bands, and the chance for more people to be exposed to musicians I really believe in is what these EF Presents shows are all about.

Daylight's For The Birds
The early evening thunderstorm actually set the mood nicely (even if it may have kept a few people from braving the rain to come to the show early) for the first band of the evening, Daylight's For The Birds. Whether you're already familiar with this band or not, get ready to hear a lot more from them. Gorilla vs. Bear posted about them a while ago and Chromewaves posted about them, again, this past week. Their recordings I listened to before seeing them live promised a sweet mixture of classic shoegaze sounds from bands like Slowdive and dream pop bands like Cocteau Twins. Sounds such as these are often not easy to bring to life on a stage but Daylight's For The Birds was completely up to the task. I was entirely impressed with their performance, with Amanda Garrett's vocals, and with the overall image the band has put together...from pre-show music to the dormant disco balls on the stage to their straight-forward confident demeanor.

Random comment made to me about them: "their sound was so amazing, it really filled up the room and kinda blew me away".

Listen:
"To No One"

Visit Daylight's For The Birds on MySpace.

The Secret Life Of Sofia
Band number two - The Secret Life Of Sofia. Loved their set. Loved it. It's that simple. What else can I say? Want to know what they sound like? Well, remember when I said:

"I could see some of the songs by The Secret Life of Sofia being the soundtrack to the wintry landscape paintings by Caspar David Friedrich. The ones where everything is all massive and dark and snowy and humans are nothing more than a small part of the whole. Like this one and this one."
Yes, so I stand by that description and to see them live was like finally getting to see a favorite painting in person at a museum after falling in love with pictures of it online or in books. It's evident that their recent tour probably helped the band build upon their live chops and chemistry as they seemed extremely comfortable together on stage and confident in their ability to deliver a fully memorable show. They did just that. Go see one of their upcoming shows to see what I mean.

Random comment made to me about them: "I loved The Secret Life Of Sofia, they reminded me of '80s Cure but with more friendly vocals".

Listen:
"Hospital Inside Me"

The Isles
Here I am, writing about another live show by The Isles...two in one week. I guess you might as well get used to it, their music has really been quenching my thirst lately. Previously I talked about their sound in terms of The Smiths but comparisons such as those don't convey what you need to know about this band. Let me say it like this, because it's the straight truth: if you grew up listening to Duran Duran, New Order, Squeeze, The Smiths, Suede, Blur...if you love Interpol but are a bit put off by their clinically calculated take on the aforementioned bands...if you've loved British indie-pop for as long as you can remember and wouldn't mind finding a New York band who plays music as if they wrote it just for you...if this is you; get up off of your bedroom floor, put down the book, and go see The Isles. Last night their kick ass rhythm section grooved so hard that a member of the audience got up on stage and danced along to a song. Ben's guitar playing was, once again, fully on point and I'll just let the below comment speak for Andrew's vocal skills.

Random comment made to me about them: "That guy's voice is amazing, it's just one of those voices that can totally carry a rock band".

Listen:
"Major Arcana"

Visit The Isles on MySpace.

Mancino
Mancino. They blend '60s pop and jazz sensibilities with time changes and an indie-rock attack reminiscent of Pavement. Each member adds vocals to the mix and at times it seems like this three piece is conjuring extra instrumentation out of thin air. Given how many times I've seen Mancino live throughout the past few years I can say without pause that this band has taken great leaps forward in the past few months with the new songs they've written for the soon-to-be recorded LP. The new stuff is magnetic, complex, and catchy and last night's outstanding set was made up almost entirely of these new songs. I am extremely excited for what lies ahead and for the rest of the indie-rock loving world to start paying attention to Mancino.

Random comment made to me about them: "Mancino pretty much blew me away".

Listen:
"Hiccup Lines"

Visit Mancino on MySpace.

Once again, my friend Franz showed up and did some sketches of three of the bands last night. Wicked cool stuff, check them out below. You can find more such drawings done by Franz of bands from BYP #1 HERE. Also, be sure to visit his site FMP Studio.com.

Holmes lit his cigar and leaned back in his chair.

"Let us hear about it," said he.

"I've got my facts pretty clear," said Stanley Hopkins. "All I want now is to know what they all mean. The story, so far as I can make it out, is like this. Some years ago this country house, Yoxley Old Place, was taken by an elderly man, who gave the name of Professor Coram. He was an invalid, keeping his bed half the time, and the other half hobbling round the house with a stick or being pushed about the grounds by the gardener in a Bath chair. He was well liked by the few neighbours who called upon him, and he has the reputation down there of being a very learned man. His household used to consist of an elderly housekeeper, Mrs. Marker, and of a maid, Susan Tarlton.

No further discoveries of significance were made until 1789 when William Herschel discovered two further moons, Mimas and Enceladus. The irregularly shaped satellite Hyperion, which has a resonance with Titan, was discovered in 1848 by a British team.[107]
In 1899 William Henry Pickering discovered Phoebe, a highly irregular satellite that does not rotate synchronously with Saturn as the larger moons do.[107] Phoebe was the first such satellite found and it takes more than a year to orbit Saturn in a retrograde orbit.

Afghan President Hamid Karzai has cancelled a visit to the UK to return to Afghanistan, after Tuesday's deadly attacks in the capital, Kabul, and in the northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif.

The twin attacks apparently targeting Shia Muslims killed at least 58 people.

A suicide bomb struck a Kabul shrine, killing at least 54, while the other blast struck near a Shia mosque in Mazar-i-Sharif at about the same time.

The attacks seemed to be sectarian, raising fears of new violence.

Mr Karzai was in Germany on Tuesday evening after attending the international conference on his country in Bonn, and was later due to travel to the UK for talks with UK Prime Minister David Cameron on Wednesday.

A serving prisoner who beat to death one of Australia's most notorious criminals has been sentenced to 32 years without parole.

Judges said Matthew Johnson, 38, seemed to believe he had a "special entitlement to kill" and followed a "meaningless underworld prison code".

He beat to death notorious Melbourne mobster Carl Williams with a pole from an exercise bike.

The incident was captured on the prison's CCTV cameras.

Johnson had said he killed Williams in self-defence, but the jury dismissed his claims.

Victorian Supreme Court Justice Lex Lasry said it was an "appalling murder and is offending near the top of any notional range of offending".

In the nineteenth Century the largest greenhouses were built. The conservatory at Kew Gardens in England is a prime example of the Victorian greenhouse. Although intended for both horticultural and non-horticultural exhibition these included London's Crystal Palace, the New York Crystal Palace and Munich’s Glaspalast. Joseph Paxton, who had experimented with glass and iron in the creation of large greenhouses as the head gardener at Chatsworth, in Derbyshire, working for the Duke of Devonshire, designed and built the first, London's Crystal Palace. A major architectural achievement in monumental greenhouse building were the Royal Greenhouses of Laeken (1874–1895) for King Leopold II of Belgium.

The Netherlands has some of the largest greenhouses in the world. Such is the scale of food production in the country that in 2000, greenhouses occupied 10,526 hectares, or 0.25% of the total land area of the Netherlands.[6]
Greenhouses began to be built in the Westland area of the Netherlands in the mid-nineteenth century.

The judge's decision in 2008 to investigate the disappearance of tens of thousands of people during the Franco era, including ordering the excavation of mass graves, provoked fierce criticism and anger.

The probe allegedly violates an amnesty on crimes committed during General Franco's rule.

Mr Garzon, however, argued that no amnesty can cover crimes against humanity.

A very strict officer was talking to some new soldiers whom he had to train. He had never seen them before, so he began:
“My name is Stone, and I’m even harder than stone, so do what I tell you or there’ll be trouble. Don’t try any tricks with me, and then we’ll get on well together.”
Then he went to each soldier one after the other and asked him his name. “Speak loudly so that everyone can hear you clearly,” he said, and don’t forget to call me "sir".
Each soldier told him his name, until he came to the last one. This man remained last one. This man remained silent, and so Captain Stone shouted at him, “When I ask you a question, answer it! I’ll ask you again: What’s your name, soldier?”
The soldier was very unhappy, but at last he replied.
“My name’s Stone-breaker, sir”, he said nervously.

Vacation property insurance coverage is not the same as the plan you obtain on the property you actually live in - and it can be a lot harder to get hold of. However, assuring your holiday house is every bit as essential as assuring your own residence.
