Slow Burner from Jordan Klassen

jkI have to admit, I’m one of those dudes that probably works too much on everything, any thing, for that matter. So lately, with the SXSW horizon and real life and all that, feeling a little stressed, so it’s good to find something gentle, like this Jordan Klassen tune. There’s some Bon Iver in the vocal tones, breathy and fragile. The music around the voice builds a steadying land where Klassen can take the spotlight. His album Javelin will be released on February 19th via Nevado Music…could help you steal away the Winter.

Yeasayer @ La Zona Rosa (4/10 & 4/11)

Date 4/10/10 & 4/11/10
Location La Zona Rosa
Doors 8pm
Tickets $15 for Sat or Sun

Unless you’re currently brain dead, you better be making a point to go see Yeasayer at one of their much anticipated shows this weekend.  Since I am currently gainfully employed with an early wake up time, I’ll be heading out on Saturday.  Now I know some of you people may be gettin’ all hot for that Vampire Weekend show, but let’s be straight here, Yeasayer is a killer live act you can’t pass up.  Be smart.  Opening support on both nights will be provided by buzz band Javelin.  If I haven’t sold you yet, check out their latest single “Ambling Alp” and tell me that doesn’t do it for ya.
