Rufus Wainwright

Half the time I don't have a clue what Rufus Wainwright is singing, and who gives a shit? his voice is a mellifluous opium den. go inside and next thing you know it's four days later and there's drool dangling from your chin to the floor. now this is a guy who simply is incapable of rushing a song. i bet they give him coke just to get him singing in the same measure as the band. he is behind the beat, dead center in ultra cool. and he holds the notes. sometimes i'm like "is this still this, note?

Parker Posey

6.8.04 Boulder CO

I just heard Nellie McKay for the first time.  Holy shit.  My friend Cori (she's married to Matt Westgate, our illustrious webmaster) gave me the CD some time ago, and I only got to listening to it now.  It's quite arresting.  It's sort of french cabaret meets club meets 40's jazz, meets rap.  hmm... I'm sure there's been a million comparisons of the like.  I'm going to be listening to her a lot.

New CD

Hi Friends, it's Stuart writing from Beautiful Illinois. Had a great time at shows this last week (Potato, anyone?), thanks to all who came to Schuba's in Chicago and Mother Fool's in Madison the night before. In other news, LA's Famous / Infamous producing duo Alex Gibson and Tripp Lanier are nearing completion of the new Stuart Davis CD, due out in September sometime. We're spinning like teenage quarks over this one, it's shaping up to be a milestone of an album.
