I must be slippin’. This one almost flew right past me. NPR’s All Songs Considered has made available Monday’s The New Pornographers and Belle and Sebastian show from the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C., available for download here.
This is especially nice for me because this tour is skipping Arizona: straight from Austin to Los Angeles. Sigh. Phoenix, nothing more than a rest stop on the way. So, again, thanks to All Songs Considered.
As is custom around here, I’ve split the one file NPR provides into separate tracks. My slicing excludes chatter (only to keep files to a manageable size). So if you’d like it all in full, I encourage you to visit All Songs Considered to pick up the full file.
A note about the show: No Neko (I hear she has some sorta new album out or something). And vocalist Kathryn Calder had laryngitis. Still quality stuff, including my one of my favorite New Porno songs The Slow Descent Into Alcoholism.
Another note: I’m not the biggest Belle and Sebastian fan. I’d have to really be swayed (read: bribed) to work on that one.
