Let’s electro pop, kids. Depeche Mode is out on tour, supporting their album Spirit, released this past March.

MP3: Depeche Mode – NOS Alive! Palco NOS, Passeio Marítimo de Algés, Oeiras, Lisbon, Portugal; July 8, 2017.

Intriguingly, only a few songs from the new album was spotlighted, as there were plenty of hits and fan faves such as “Personal Jesus,” “Walking In My Shoes” and early gem “Everything Counts.” The full tracklisting is below.

Who out there doesn’t love Yo La Tengo? (Okay, you in the corner, the dude with the Fatomas T-shirt, please let yourself out quietly.) In March the Hoboken heroes mounted a unique concert billed as Yo La Tengo Turned Itself Inside Out that featured additional instrumentation beyond the core three: two drummers, a guitarist, a four-person horn section, and Zeena Parkins on electric harp being processed through multiple effects boxes. The good folks at Big O Zine have now posted the show in its entirety online – via a hot-sounding audiende recording at Dime A Dozen, natch.

Beatles “Pepper’s” 6-CD Bootleg Issued to Compete w/Official 50th Anniv.

File under “B” for…. you know.

By Uncle Blurt

So you say you are enjoying that mega-Beatles box released the other day to mark the 50th anniversary of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band? Y(ou can read all about it HERE on our site.) Well, get set for an additional endorphin rush: The estimable Japanese Label Digital Archives Productions has just dropped its own version that by all accounts is remarkably competitive with the official EMI title, with comparable handsome artwork, intriguing song selection, and very good sound quality.

Titled Sgt. Pepper’ Lonely Hearts Club Band Recording Sessions Chronology, the bootleg is, like its aboveground brother, a six-CD set focusing on studio sessions for the landmark 1967 album and includes extensive documentation of both “Strawberry Fields Forever” and “Penny Lane,” which were released as a 45 and later surfaced on the Magical Mystery Tour soundtrack album.

You can find more information HERE – it will help if you can read Japanese – and meanwhile, check out the tracklisting, below.

MP3: Download Midnight Oil’s 5/18 Chicago Show

Power and passion par excellence…

By Uncle Blurt

There are a lot of us here at BLURT who are big fans of Australian rock bands, and Midnight Oil is near the top of the list. So your ol’ Uncle was mighty chuffed when news arrived that Peter Garrett & Co. would be barnstorming across North America throughout May for their “Great Circle 2017 Tour.” Last week they performed in Chicago, and now an audience recording of the show has surfaced on Dime A Dozen, with Big O zine picking up the ball and posting the MP3s, along with downloadable artwork, at their site.

MP3: Midnight Oil – The Vic Theatre, Chicago, IL; May 18, 2017.

Worth noting: the Oils performed their fourth album, 1982’s 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 , in its entirety during the first set, then plenty more fan favorites and politically-charged hits. The full tracklisting is below.

MP3: Download Kendrick Lamar’s Coachella ’17 Set

Get some California lovin’, KL style.

By Uncle Blurt

I know what you’re thinking: Uncle Blurt, you never gave us the slightest hint that you were down with Kendrick! Au contraire, frere. I’ve got all his records on vinyl, so there. And now I’ve got his entire Coachella set from this year burned to CDR, complete with downloadable artwork, thanks to the archivists at the Big O zine.

MP3: Kendrick LamarEmpire Polo Grounds, Indio, CA; April 16, 2017.

The show was ripped from an HD webcast, so the quality is sweet. Tracks from all his albums are spotlighted – check the tracklist, below. And let’s face it: being able to listen to Coachella shows without having to actually BE at that clusterfuck for rich people is second only to not having to be at the Fyre Festival.

MP3: Download Run The Jewels 3/1/17 NYC Show

Hey kids – stay calm!

By Uncle Blurt

You could say we love us some El-P and Killer Mike around the BLURT crib… even your aging ol’ uncle, who until a year ago still thought the term “rap” was what folks did back in the ’60s when they wanted to have a serious conversation. (I remember an Episcopal Church preacher who prided himself for his “rap sessions” with us teenagers… but I digress.) So Run the Jewels had an HDTV broadcast of their March 1 concert in New York last month, and it’s now up at the Big O zine for free download, complete with artwork.

MP3 – Run The Jewels: Terminal 5, New York, NY; March 1, 2017

The sound is pretty awesome, and guests who come out include Boots, Joi, Gangsta Boo, and Zach de la Rocha, so things get, uh, pretty lively, to say the least. They even close out with a wild cover of the Pixies’ “Where Is My Mind.” Here’s the full tracklisting:

MP3: Download Patti Smith’s 4/16/17 Melbourne Show

PSmelbFr crop

Band performs Horses plus selected faves.

By Uncle Blurt

It’s been nine years since the Patti Smith Group toured Australia, and even longer since I saw her, so to nab a very hot audience recording of Smith performing this past weekend in Melbourne is a treat indeed. Over at longtime Smith supporters the Big O zine, the Sunday evening show is now posted for free download, along with downloadable artwork.

MP3: Patti Smith – Hamer Hall, Melbourne, Australia; April 16, 2017

It’s not only great sounding, it’s a raucous show as well; as Big O informs us, “The crowd sat for the first two songs, then during Birdland one enterprising young lady decided to make her way up to the front, which then led to a free for all abandoning of seats and everyone else rushing to the front and everyone in the stalls standing for the rest of the show.”

Added a reviewer at Australia’s The Age, “[Forty years after the release of Horses] and in the flesh, this holy figure spits, burps and whips her followers into a spiritual frenzy. Standing ovations were happening before the band played a note, and while the first couple of tracks built the mood – ‘Jesus died for somebody’s sins but not mine’ – ‘Birdland’ saw people get out of their seats and march down to the front and out in the aisles, dancing, clapping and reaching out for Smith to touch their hands like she was, well, the Pope.”

Below, check out the setlist. Lineup: Patti Smith – vocals, guitar (on My Generation); Lenny Kaye – guitar, bass, vocals; Jay Dee Daugherty – drums, bass; Tony Shanahan – keyboards, bass, vocals; Andy York – bass, guitar, vocals.

MP3: Download Father John Misty 2/3/17 BBC Broadcast

fatherjohn1

 

By Uncle Blurt

Here at the Blurt pirate ship (we’re moored just off the shore of Ireland, incidentally) we have a hard time reaching a consensus about Father John Misty; Joshua Tillman’s music is intermittently brilliant, occasionally self indulgent, and moderately interesting (if a bit ’70s soft-rock derivative). On my part, I’m on the fence – and I detest his latest bathtub fart, Pure Comedy, which came out last week via Sub Pop. (Nice colored vinyl for the 2LP set, though.)

But fans will dig this show posted for free MP3 download at the Big O zine recently.

MP3: Father John Misty – BBC Session (for Lauren Laverne show), BBC 6 Music Studios, Wogan House, London, UK; February 3, 2017
