Neat! Previously, I would simply save a post and get back to it through my profile. This keeps you from having to go through those extra steps though and I'd assume would likely keep you engaged in discussion a lot better since it is instantly presented to you (and therefore you're reminded of it) whenever you browse through your feed.

I'd save your 17€ and just stay in and watch this instead. I know it's nothing like actually being present and feeling that heavy bass reverberate inside your chest and getting out and moving, but you could maybe save the cover for another night with another act. I guess it also depends who they're playing with too.

I too love this album, but I should say that I don't find them all too appealing live. I really don't feel like Lauren is cut out for performance at this point in time. I could be entirely off, but she seems pretty unsure of herself when on stage and whether to trust her in-ear monitor or not. That, and there is little to no stage presence at all between the three of them, but most so from her. I get that you can only do so much when in front of staged keys/sampling equipment, but come on! Anyhow, that's just my opinion. Don't stone me too hard.

All things aside though, really catchy stuff. It's pretty apparent that the tracks not heard until this album were recorded much later than say The Mother We Share and Recover (I see you too Gun + Lies). Out of the new tracks, I didn't find myself skipping over any, but they don't seem to stand on their own in my eyes except for Night Sky and We Sink.

    1 can be found in the upper right of any post.

Doh. I completely missed that. Thanks for pointing that out.

    I should mention that commenting is often as important to getting followers as posting is.

I happen to have used post to interchangeably mean post/comment. That's just my folly.

I'm late to the party here (I arrived with the recent influx of reddit users), but is it too late to submit recordings? I see this was posted a month ago, and so I'd think chances are good that the upcoming podcast is already in the midst of production. If things are still early in the process and submissions are still welcomed, I'd love to submit!

One of my favorite performances on youtube from them is here.

Pickwick - Staged Names / Hacienda Motel (2011 - The Doe Bay Sessions)

Here's a link to a KiwiIRC powered web client which is already set with settings for our IRC channel!

For those who'd like to try out a full fledged software client, here are some great open-source and cross platform options!

* Smuxi

* Quassel IRC

* XChat

Note: The pre-compiled windows builds available from the XChat site aren't free, and require a registration fee of $19.99 USD after 30 days, but the source is freely available and many forks are out there. Some examples are...

* X-Chat SE

* HexChat

* X-Chat 2

Of course, there are many other options available, including closed source freeware/shareware/paid options. Take a look at this wikipedia article for a pretty thorough listing.

Esrever  ·  link  ·  parent  ·  post: Album Template - Updated 2013.10.06

Great idea! I'll work on that. I'm also planning on adding a section for specific links meant to work as playlists / streams of an entire album. This template will also be adapted for playlists too, and not only for albums.

Hey guys/gals, I made up a template for album postings which could possibly be used for #weeklydj. It's still a work in progress. I'd love to have those interested in this to visit here and throw around their ideas so it may be improved upon. Let me know what you think!

Oh, my apologies. I wasn't able to find a list of known issues anywhere previously. Would you be kind enough to link me to it so that I may not inadvertently post issues you're already aware of in the future?
