Francophile

Posted on by Eric in M&T Favorites | Leave a comment

Gearing up for French class next semester with the original French badass, Jacques Dutronc. This song was introduced to me by my worldly friend Trevor who is a big fan of French culture. The last time that I took French was freshman year, but I think that the musical stylings of Dutronc will be enough to bring me up to speed. The song below, “Et moi, Et moi, Et moi…” was featured in the 2002 Matt Dillon film City of …

Silver Swans have been making some waves recently in the music world and if you haven’t heard of them, they are a “dream pop” duo out of San Francisco and you can listen to the title track off of their new Secrets EP below. This track really caught my attention when I first heard it and you can definitely tell why it is classified as dream pop. Listening to this song makes you feel like lead singer Ann Yu (also singer …

I am working on a research project about 1960s American counterculture and its music and I came across this gem while looking for some inspiration. God I wish I was in college in the ’60s.

Tonight I went to see Dawes play at the Royale, formerly the Roxy, in Boston. Earlier in the day the Goldsmith brothers played a free acoustic set at Newbury Comics in Faneuil Hall which I was able to attend as well. Both sets featured songs from their debut release North Hills as well as their forthcoming disc which is due out next year. The second set kicked off with “My Girl to Me” and a whole lot of Springsteen swagger …

New Music Mondays: Kite Club

Kite Club, which is actually just the musical moniker for Aussie artists Nicholas Futcher, has been all over the blogosphere recently and I believe that it would be a shame if we didn’t post about him on Maimed and Tamed. He very well could be the next Passion Pit or dare I say Animal Collective for all of you die hard freaks out there. Listen to the tracks below and download them for free here: http://kiteclub.bandcamp.com/album/goodtime-tea-show

Barebum Bandit Strikes Again

Posted on by Eric in M&T Favorites | Leave a comment

I was fortunate enough to head down to the Newport Folk Festival this summer for two days filled with great music, great times and great people. Obviously one of the highlights was getting to see Jim James play two sets, one solo and one with pals Ben Sollee, Daniel Martin Moore and Dan Dorff, whose 2010 album Dear Companion was produced by James. My intense infatuation with James led to me jokingly telling my friends that I wanted to reveal myself …
