Standby: Harry Nilsson

standby :: harry nilsson from The Window Seat on Vimeo.

Harry Nilsson is someone every music fan should know. He is one of those fellows who you might not have heard of, but you’ve definitely heard his music. If you’d like a good introduction to him, I recommend starting off with album Nilsson Schmilsson. You can buy it on Amazon here.

Oh and check out  clips from the Son of Dracula rock opera he made with Ringo Star here. Awesome right?!

Secret Ingredients: John Vanderslice

Who doesn’t like blueberry cobbler, WHO I ask you? This is a recipe from John Vanderslice, we found this recipe in our friend Kara Zuaro’s book. One time I brought John Vanderslice brownies on tour, and he loved them so much he gave me free tickets to the show! He mentioned something about venues being cold, dingy places that could benefit from music fans bringing more home baked goods to concerts. So next time you have a ticket to see Uncle John Vanderslice bring him a  baked treat!

We ate this whole blueberry cobbler in 1 day. There may have been some licking of the pan…just saying. Don’t judge me.

Dance Card: Middle Brother

I cannot stop listening to this album! I rolled down my windows today for the first time this year, and Middle Brother was playing on my ipod. I’ve decided it’s the perfect soundtrack to the beginning of summer. Especially the first song on the record, Blue Eyes.

Dance Card: Data Rock “Fa Fa Fa”

dance card :: datarock from The Window Seat on Vimeo.

I actually was listening to an LCD Soundsystem song during this dance, but then I found this Datarock cd in a box of old things and I had to send this song to Megan. I remember seeing this Norwegian electro rock band play years ago, and it was such a fun show! Data Rock where are you now? Make a new record and come to the US of A on tour!

UPDDATE: Guess what I just Googled them and they had a new record come out in March. Very exciting! Or as my Norwegian friends would say, veldig spennende!

Standby: Wye Oak

These guys have been around for awhile, and their 3rd album, CIVILIAN,  sees them reaching a new maturity in their sound and lyrics. Download the title track of the new record here.

I also am obsessed with this live performance they did on a rooftop in Amsterdam. Oh to be part of an impossibly cool indie folk rock duo like Wye Oak….and sigh.

PS: I do a killer Jenn Wasner impersonation…. well I think it’s killer…..Megan thinks it’s one of the top 10 worst sounds she’s ever heard.

Dance Card: Jamie Lidell

This red building is right by my house. It used to be a bar, but they closed it down because I think there was a shoot out. It was one of those bars where every night at 1am, like clockwork, the cops would show up due to a brawl or drug bust. Thats the Window Seat girls for you…living dangerously. Shooting in the sketchiest of locations for the greater good of dance moves and music.

Mates of State are like my kid brother, I will always defend them and punch out anyone who talks badly about them. In other words, I will stand by this band until the end of time. They have a new record coming out in September, and I’ve already set an iPhone alert to buy the record at midnight!
