Ben Harper in concert from the Ed Sullivan Theater

Ben Harper is one of my favorite artists…11 years since I first heard him play live in Chicago and he just keeps getting better and better. Enjoy this set over a nice cup of coffee. Cheers!

CBS seems to have messed up their embed code…here’s the link to all of the songs and videos over at Ben Harper’s website.

A band that I’ve been listening to for a very long time

I love that Jason and Mike have been able to keep making music for all these years…The Nadas have been one of my favorite bands ever since I was an undergrad at the University of Northern Iowa. I think it’s pretty funny that they just busted out Eye of the Tiger in Philadelphia!

6 tracks that I’ve been spinning lately…

Life, love, change, and the future.

The Nadas

Listen to “Feels Like Home”

I’ve been listening to the Nadas for quite a while. At least 12 years of auditory enjoyment. I remember seeing them perform at the OP in Cedar Falls, Iowa while I was a student at the University of Northern Iowa. I’ve seen them perform at venues in Iowa, in Chicago, IL and at a friends wedding in Minnesota. I’ve watched these guys grow up while I myself was maturing. When the inevitable occurs and the Nadas retire/break-up, I’m going to be bummed out. They have been a musical constant in my eclectic musical collection. I wonder if they’ll ever make it out to Oregon for a gig?

Listen to “Blue Lights”

Listen to “Coming Home”

Listen up, the RIAA sucks

Pandora

Pandora, my ultra-favorite web radio station, may be forced to shut down due to a RIAA sponsored policy by a federal panel that has skyrocketed their operating costs.

Muxtape - make a mixtape online using MP3s

In other web-music news, Muxtape, another favorite locale for web music, is currently down. The homepage sadly displays the following message:
“Muxtape will be unavailable for a brief period while we sort out a problem with the RIAA.”

The RIAA sucks. Seriously. Web-based radio stations “pay more for playing a song than traditional or satellite radio.”
