By popular demand (OK, like, seven of you, but I was moved by commenter Lori’s request in verse!), here are the three tracks the Shout Out Louds performed on Minnesota Public Radio’s The Current in June.
These versions are pretty much stripped down, acoustic beauty. The version of Shut Your Eyes they said was the “November recording,” so a bit different from the album version, which is uptempo and energetic.
Also of note, the band said The Comeback was the first song they wrote, which makes it all the more impressive.
Shout Out Louds, in-studio on The Current, June 3, 2005:
1. Shut Your Eyes (November recording)
2. Please, Please, Please
3. The Comeback
Question: Anybody have these earphones? I’ve been looking at them for months and I can’t decide if it’s worth the scratch. Those in-ear phones never seem to fit me right, but I hear good things about those suckers.
- You need to add Marathon Packs (one word or two, Eric?) to your daily reads/blogrolls/bookmarks/whatever. The music is great, but I really appreciate Eric’s insight and intelligent writing, like his Poorly Constructed Thoughts on Pitchfork’s Year-End Top 50.
- Dodge has all sorts of shizz (his word) he’s givin’ away, including that new Queens of the Stone Age CD/DVD I badly want to win.
- For you sports fans, Deadspin is a must read. These guys have it all covered, including groupie/athlete sightings (with photos!).
I’m sorry to report that Goose at Veritas Lux Mea has hung it up. Go pay your respects.
