Laird’s Library: One Blog Wonders

July 31, 2015

For my latest Laird’s Library mix I decided to go with bands that only have one song in their folder on my hard drive.  So, in essence, I liked a track, wrote about it, and then either never looked into the band again or they just went about releasing stuff I didn’t like.  They’re all One Blog Wonders!  Get it?  You get it.  Enjoy.

:Explorers Club – Last Kiss:
:Dark Side Of The Cop – Shaky Little Rules:
:Eugene Francis Jr – Poor Me:
:The Oohlas – Small Parts:
:Chairs In The Arno – Winter Song:
:Etta Place – In Reverie:
:Dead Man’s Bones – My Body’s A Zombie For You:
:ultCult – Five Bedrooms And Two Lounges:
:Happy Birthday – Girls FM:
:Gentleman Auction House – The Book Of Matches:

Laird’s Library: Missing Bands

June 12, 2015


For this month’s stroll through my hard drive I decided to pull 12 bands that seem to have disappeared.  Did they break up?  Are they on hiatus?  Perhaps they’re just busy living their lives?  I dunno.  I’d google each of them, but the recent episode of Silicon Valley (the one partly about Schrodinger’s cat) says I should do otherwise if I want them to keep existing.  So there’s that.  Enjoy.

:Saturday Knights – 45:
:White Rabbits – Percussion Gun:
:Splinters – Dark Shades:
:Pomegranates – Beachcomber:
:Palomar – Bury Me Closer:
:Mason Proper – Lock And Key:
:Headlights – Cherry Tulips:
:Imaad Wasif – Oceanic:
:Kristoffer Ragnstam – Beauty:
:Pelle Carlberg – I Love You, You Imbecile:
:Pas-Cal – You Were Too Old For Me:
:Grand Buffet – Oh My God You’re Weird:

Laird’s Library: Tim Fite

May 22, 2015


My plan for this mix was to always make it an assortment of artists, but then while crawling around my hard drive last night I got eternally hung up on the brilliant Tim Fite.  So, here I am, abandoning my guidelines and instead presenting to you my top 10 favorite songs (plus two skits) by Mr. Fite.  I do what I want!  Or whatever.  Enjoy.

PS – Tim has a ton of music on his site, if you’re feeling browsy and generous.  Support him!

:Tim Fite – It’s All Right Here:
:Tim Fite – No Good Here:
:Tim Fite – More Clothes:
:Tim Fite – I’ve Been Shot:
:Tim Fite – Bully:

Hey there.  Recently I was looking at the hard drive that holds my music, and I realized I was closing in on 63,000 mp3s.  This made me wonder about the random things that must be buried on it, so as an excuse to rummage through its endless folders I’m starting Laird’s Library.  It’ll be a semi-regular mix.  Below is the first one.  It’s a variety of cover songs – some I’ve posted, some I haven’t.  Enjoy.
