About: Grand Funk Railroad

Live Album

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Grand Funk Railroad is an American power trio band. Not usually well-received by critics, the original Grand Funk Railroad lineup was highly popular during the 1970s, having sold over 25 million records and selling out arenas world-wide. They were often cited as “the loudest rock and roll band in the world.” The current Grand Funk Railroad lineup uses the nickname “The American Band”, from their hit song “We’re An American Band”.

D’oh! I’ve been trying to implement a MUSIC LYRICS Database

I’ve got a database, but I don’t have an adequate script to utilize it – yet … So, I was trying to fiddle something from something else into something completely different .. and well – PHP hates me! I am not a programmer, I do not know PHP .. but hopefully, I can figure something out soon.

It would be nice to have some lyrics from some of the bands in here .. don’t you think?

Video: The Album Leaf – Making the album “Into the Blue Again”

New Release: The Album Leaf – Into The Blue Again

Buy it from Insound: The Album Leaf

Jimmy LaValle’s varied experience includes stints with Tristeza, The Locust, GoGoGo Airheart, The Blackheart Procession, and Sigur Ros. Into The Blue Again sees LaValle handling the bulk of the vocal and instrumental duties. After tracking, he took the concentric billows of feathered keyboards, filmy strings, and chiseled drums to Iceland for three weeks of mixing to tape to maintain Brian Eno-informed translucence. Having shared so much time and space with others on the road, LaValle proves, with this personally charged release, that The Album Leaf resonates most profoundly when he goes it alone.

About: The Album Leaf

In a Safe Place

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Album Leaf is a pseudonym for Jimmy LaValle, formerly of The Black Heart Procession, Tristeza, The Locust, and GoGoGo Airheart.

The Album Leaf is the solo-project of Jimmy LaValle. His former work includes the ambient post-rock Tristeza, noise punk band The Locust, and epic-core group Black Heart Procession. With The Album Leaf, LaValle utilizes the elements of classical, ambient, jazz, and post-rock to form music that masterfully negotiates an even space between minimal electronic composition and mournful post-rock. Like many similar musicians in the genre, The Album Leaf uses white noise, field recordings, and radio transmissions to add to his work.

During the Fall of 2001, The Album Leaf opened for Icelandic post-rock band Sigur Rós during their US tour. During this tour, LaValle secured the use of Sigur Rós’ Icelandic studio for his third album, In a Safe Place, as well as the services of many of its band members.

On September 12, 2006, LaValle released his fourth album entitled Into the Blue Again on Sub Pop Records in North America. The album saw an earlier release in Germany (Sept. 8) and throughout the rest of Europe (Sept. 11) courtesy of City Slang Records.

New Release: Supersystem – A Million Microphones

Buy it from Insound: Supersytem

Supersystem has always been ready to destroy a song in order to put it back together. Hip-hop, electronica, punk rock, so-called “world music”; a little bit of everything has gone into the architecture. This construct/deconstruct reflex is groomed and refined on the NY/DC quartet’s latest release. Its eleven original tracks are saturated with African-tinged guitar, complex polyrhythms, atmospheric synthesizers, jaunty, funk-fried bass, and infectious beats.
