So the hectic holiday season is finally over. Despite the usual headaches caused by long lines at stores, delayed packages, trying to visit dozens of family members in one afternoon, etc. it was a damn nice holiday.

My New Year's resolution? Try to post more on this blog! I've been pretty bad about it lately, but I've been pretty busy. Here's what I've been up to over the past couple of weeks:
  1. Enjoying a 17-day break from work
  2. Fighting a nasty cold that still hasn't gone away.
  3. Filming the first Grace Potter & The Nocturnals show at Higher Ground.
  4. Recording tracks for the first Solah full-length album.
  5. Preparing playlists for my post-metal/heavy ambient radio show on 105.9 The Radiator.
So, yeah, that's my list of excuses. I don't have anything to exciting to report, so instead here's an album download link. It's for two unreleased demos and two official studio albums by one of my favorite bands of last year, Wolves in the Throne Room. I would recommend downloading the demos and buying the studio albums, but it's up to you. Either way, enjoy!

Grace Potter does not serve as a valid excuse for anything, ever.

Oh, come now....

Although I'll admit that I'm not an unbiased critic on this one (Grace & the band have paid me quite well to videotape their shows over the past few years), I will unabashedly admit to being a fan of GP & the Nocturnals.

While their albums have been very much lacking (due to restrained performances and over-production) they are an incredible live band, full of energy, invention & raw talent & passion. Blues-rock is an overdone genre, but Grace Potter and the Nocturnals are one of the few bands doing the legacy justice.

I had that cold, it's a bitch.

This cannot have effect in fact, that is what I believe.
