Porcupine Tree at the Grove in Anaheim... again

It’s only been a few months, but Porcupine Tree returned to the Grove in Anaheim. They are really an amazing band. Their blend of metal with pop harmonies is so unique, so well played, so inspired I find it incredible that they are so unknown. This time around, they focused less on the new CD and more on their more dark and intense songs. The mid section of the show seemed to lack in variety, which made this show a little less interesting than the previous performance in June. But overall it was a great show and a band that I look forward to seeing many times in the future.

This Weeks PLay List

I returned from Austin last week with lots of music and memories. It’s going to take awhile to get all of the music to you. Meanwhile, this week we have a sampling of ACL bands to go along with everything else. Songs by the Asylum Street Spankers, The Decemberists, Built to Spill and Kate Earl will lead off this week’s set.

We’ve also got Kate Bush’s first Single in a dozen years. Called “King of the Mountain”, it starts with a spacey opening and then builds with a reggae beat that grows and grows. What an excellent song. I can’t wait for the rest of the CD in November.
