The Blog Continues

I am still here. Well, I am in a different place now, but still here, on your screen. I have finally acquired a place of my own in Saint Pete Beach, Florida. I am connected via my phone for now. 60 Mbps connection is coming in a few weeks. I won't be posting much until then. One thing I have lost is time. I am now a regular old employee at a jay oh bee. Haven't punched a timeclock since 1999!
I may be more active on Twitter (@djtalbot) for now, passing along links to great music. For today:

Scottish trio The Twilight Sad are reissuing their exhilarating debut album ‘Fourteen Autumns & Fifteen Winters’ for Record Store Day on 19 April 2014.

I am excited for my friends in The Luxembourg Signal. The first single "Distant Drive" b/w "Wishing Pool" is coming April 29th on limited edition vinyl and digital formats.

The Luxembourg Signal, while being a brand new project, features members who have been playing together for years as part of the much adored Aberdeen (Sarah Records)(!!!!) Several years, several bands -- including most recently Fonda and Trembling Blue Stars -- and a few reunions later, Johnny Joyner, Beth Arzy and Brian Espinosa started The Luxembourg Signal with Betsy Moyer and Ginny Pitchford. They have created a spacier, noisier, and more mature sound that occasionally harkens back to their early 90s roots. Piecing together almost ten years of ideas and nabbing any recording time possible with Beth when visiting Los Angeles from the UK, their debut is finally here. Six minutes and 25 seconds of pure-pop bliss that is the perfect teaser to their upcoming full length coming in late summer 2014 on Shelflife.
The band also managed to take some time off recording to perform live supporting Shelflife labelmates The Ocean Blue in Los Angeles.
