Albert Hammond Jr + Umbrellas + Lily Allen + Mild Insanity...
Umbrellas' Scott Windsor
[MP3] Umbrellas - Ships
AHHHH What a week. Is it over yet? PLEASE FRICKIN' BE OVER ALREADY!
Last night I made a valiant attempt to go to three shows in the same night, but came up short. Hey, I made it to one!
I went to the Knitting Factory to see Lakes. Fantastic show. The sound in the Knitting Factory was absolutely superb. It made the otherwise intolerable venue slightly more tolerable for the evening (If you wish to inquire WHY I dislike The Knitting Factory you can email me, but it basically can be summed up in one word: BLACKHOLE).
I was pleasantly surprised by Scott Windsor of Umbrellas (and previously of The Lyndsay Diaries). Scott really held his own on the massive Knit main stage - performing Umbrellas songs acoustic and cracking jokes about plane rides from Oklahoma to Los Angeles.
Umbrellas recently had a track from their lastest album Illuminare featured in an episode of Gray's Anatomy. You can download that track entitled "Ships" above.
[MP3] Albert Hammond Jr. - In Transit
I have been playing Yours To Keep - the latest album from Albert Hammond Jr. on repeat for the last 3 days. It is a simply marvelous rock record. The album will see its U.S. Release March 6th, 2007. Those hoping to see Hammond perform at the Troubadour Feb 14th will be dissapointed to find out that the show is SOLD OUT.
You'll have a second chance March 6th at The El Rey. Buy Tickets Here.
