Hello all, we know we've been distant but we're still around... Last year, KC and I weren't exactly prepared to give Christmas gifts to family members so we though we'd share what we love with our family. For the past several years, the 2001 My Morning Jacket performance from WFPK has not gone without 20 spins or so during the month of December for either of us. KC put his skills to work and created this cover and off to Kinkos we went to print it up the best we could with limited resources. The tracks are on the internet archive for all to download and that's where we'll direct you. If you're a music pureist, download the flacs and burn a CD; if you're a fan on the go, nab the mp3s and apply the image at the top for the cover art. Click on the image below to download the full resolution jpg and print and cut to make a cover for yourself. Enjoy!
We hope the best to you this holiday season and we'll see you in the new year!
Love, 37 Flood

Ben Sollee starts his US tour here in Louisville at the 930 Listening room this Saturday. Ben has readied a tour only EP called "Something Worth Keeping." Here's what Ben has to say about the EP and things worth keeping:
"The beauty of people is anchored in imperfection; it is not that we are destructive but that we are ignorant to a better way. We dream big with even bigger costs. Furthermore, we learn the lesson daily that we don’t know what we have until it is gone. Combined, these two qualities are child-like but ever present.
When I look around I see a lot of things that are worth keeping: the mountain tops of Appalachia, family and community farms, art and music in schools, and, most of all, a government by the people and for the people. But how? The challenge that our leaders and us face is that we don’t know how to accomplish these goals. There are many eloquent ideas out there about renewable energy, educational systems, and governing, but realizing them means trying new things; which is daunting at least, and terrifying at most. As my generation takes the reins we should not sacrifice some qualities of this nation and the land in its boundaries to the wayfaring spirit of economy. They are important for Americans, our children, and the rest of the world.
These thoughts inspired these two new songs. But they are only songs…" - Ben Sollee

The Young Republic will be playing a show at the Brick House this Friday the 17th. They have recently come off a tour of the UK with the likes of Bon Iver and The Mountain Goats where the released an EP entitled Idiot Grin. The show this Friday will celebrate the US release of that EP and having had a sneak peek of the EP, I'm happy to say it's an awesome release! The band has recently relocated from Boston to Nashville which puts them in a prime location to trek up to Louisville to earn some new fans. Chris Miller, bassist, also has roots in Louisville so that'll hopefully keep them coming back to give us more and more. Also playing the show... Staging the Area and Josh Napier, show starts at 6pm.
The Young Republic's new EP, Idiot Grin will only be available at the show or online but be sure and pick up the most recent album, 12 Tales from Winter City available at iTunes.
Check out this video from the infamous "Black Cab Sessions" across the pond (such an awesome concept):

With winter right around the corner this Wednesday is the last WFPK Waterfront Wednesday show of 2008. WFPK has organized a hell of a line-up for a finale. Info about the artist below from the WFPK website.
John Mann Band- 6pm
In his twenty-seven years, John Mann has veered both near and far from his native western Kentucky. After going to college in Lexington, Mann moved for a brief period to San Diego, before returning to Kentucky and making the move to Louisville.
With an interesting musical heritage (Mann’s cousin is former Sun Records artist Carl Mann, who had a hit in the fifties with an up-tempo reworking of the pop standard, Mona Lisa), Mann has tried to keep his music planted in the present with an always keen eye to the past.
In December of 2004 John released his second album called Hands in the Pavement, which was a favorite on 91.9 WFPK. References to Hiatt, Dylan, Van Morrison, the Band, Cash, and Muscle Shoals-among others are often coined in describing Mann’s crafting of songs. Mann is also highly sought after as an accompanying guitar player in many local bands, most notably as a full time guitarist/harmony singer with Louisville legend Tim Krekel; he has also played with Danny Flanigan, Hell’s Half Acre, and Ten Months Later.
With the release of his latest effort, Evening News, Mann and family recently relocated to Nashville, Tenn., where he’ll continue writing, recording and touring.@ the Rudyard Kipling in May
Langhorne Slim and the War Eagles- 7:30pm
Something of a one-man mixture of the Cramps, Beck’s early indie records (circa One Foot in the Grave), and the soundtrack to O Brother Where Art Thou, singer and guitarist Langhorne Slim offers a sardonic, modern take on traditional folk, country, and blues. Fancifully dubbed “the bastard son of Hasil Adkins” in some of his early press releases, Langhorne Slim is in fact a Pennsylvania native who resettled in Brooklyn after his graduation from the State University of New York at Purchase.
After a self-released demo garnered some local and online attention (as well as a semi-regular gig as the opening act for indie novelty outfit the Trachtenberg Family Slideshow Players), Langhorne Slim signed with the indie label Narnack Records and released his first EP, Electric Love Letter, in March 2004. The more varied and band-oriented full-length When the Sun’s Gone Down followed in the spring of 2005. Much touring ensued over the next year, including support dates with Lucero and Murder by Death, with drummer Malachi DeLorenzo and upright bassist Paul DeFiglia (aka “the War Eagles”) in tow. In 2006, Langhorne Slim signed with the larger (though still not major) label V2 Records, which released the all-new EP Engine in September of that year, as the singer was finishing recording his second full album, produced by Josh Ritter’s keyboardist, Sam Kassirer."Restless"
Paul Thorn Band– 9pm
The first thing you notice is The Voice, unique and distinctive, the voice of a man who has walked a long, hot span over dusty Mississippi country roads. At turns soulful, raw, melancholy, brazen, funky, circumspect, serene, brooding, and mutinous, the voice expresses the range of human emotions, from forlorn grimness to incandescent optimism. And after repeated listens, you realize that his is not merely the voice of a poet but also of a merciful prophet, a summation not unjustified. Those who follow the career of Paul Thorn believe he is both.
His newest CD is A Long Way From Tupelo, a collection of songs which once again illustrates Thorn’s versatility and authentic connection to the music of the Mississippi heartland: blues, country, gospel, rhythm and blues, and rock ‘n’ roll. Thorn excels as a musical storyteller. Maybe, given his background, he just can’t help it. His songs are conduits for that gritty part of the South where beleaguered wisdom is as likely from the bottom of a bottle of Johnny Walker Red as it is from the pulpit of an old country church. And the latest Paul Thorn CD remains true to form."A Long Way from Tupelo"
