Live October Streams & Downloads From Yo La Tengo, Dinosaur Jr, The Gossip

I'm a little behind here, and I'm cursing my courseload for taking me away from it.

I'll be posting when I find rare moments to breathe.

For now, check out very recent performances from Yo La Tengo (The Current, 10-7-2009), The Gossip (scorching!) at the 9:30 Club on the same day (NPR Live Concerts)(download mp3), and Dinosaur Jr., more like Dinosaur Sr. these days, but with a 3-Marshall stack show, still heavy and dissonant as a teenager, also an NPR Live Concert at the 9:30, (October 8th)(download mp3).

The Swimmers - A Hundred Hearts

I listen to this, and I can see the exploits of a complicated girl play out in a video that doesn't exist. Let me dream. Music Video, where have you gone?

From The Swimmers' People Are Soft, out Nov. 3.
