BLUSIRKUT Live at Bobolink (With Guests)18/09/2007 Duração: 01h45min
The end of summer is upon us and fall is quickly approaching. We've had a great year so far and want to share some of the live BLUSIRKUT vibe from the warm festival months... So as promised, this is an hour and a half long selection from our performance at the Bobolink Festival 2007 with guest musicians and 'On The One' with John Staten and Jesse Molloy. It's a 90MB download but if you're into live recordings, this was a great show. I can't say that the quality is the best because the group that was supposed to be in charge of recording clearly walked away from the mixing board and just let it ride... but the performance is still exceptional... The house was grooving! BLUSIRKUT Live at Bobolink :: 90MB :: 1:35:00 12:14 Noisey Stabber 11:45 BLU 08:46 Bs Lodge Jam 11:59 Samba D 19:44 Hip-Hop 21:23 MJ - Afrobeat Jam 10:03 Lauren Hill We're gearing up for another West Coast run in October and are still in deep space construction on the album so stay tuned & thanks for listening!
Lauren :: BLUSIRKUT Live @ Humboldt Brews09/07/2007 Duração: 12min
This is a pretty little ditty you might recognize :) The man tearing it up on the classical guitar is Mr. Brian Jordan (BLUSIRKUT, KDTU) who also happens to be the guitarist for Lauren Hill. There's a little feedback at the very beginning but it clears up by the time the song kicks in around 2 minutes... the classical guitar meistro steps in around 4:45... absolutely not to be missed... Coming up next on the podcast will be a full hour from BLUSIRKUT live @ Bobolink Music Festival... Guest Musicians include John Staten & Jesse Molloy from 'On The One' and Karl Denson... stay tuned!
Noisy Stabber28/06/2007 Duração: 03min
As per our conversation on Youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1WJIx0k_3lQ) I am posting the track 'Noisy Stabber' for my man 'FunkerPunkerJunker'... It's been one of my absolute favorites from the get go and is normally served up right after 'Electric Sounds' (the first track on this podcast)... they have an excellent contrast together... On another tip, the Bobolink videos are up on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/blusirkut - more are coming along with a Meltone live cut of "I'm your Venus, I'm your fire, your desire..." Fantastic... If anyone wants something special posted to the podcast from youtube or off of the website (www.blusirkut.com) feel free to post a comment about it or send us an e-mail... we are here to please your senses... werd...
