Today I'm checking out a few favourites from a couple years ago, Alchemy and Brothers in Arms. Dire Straits certainly had quite the impact on music, in a very positive way.

And, "Rock Royalty" strings and all.

Dhani Harrison performs live on KCRW

More visually appealing perhaps

With the risk of Grizzly Bear overdose, here is a fantastic nearly flawless live set and an interview video, crisply recorded by Bob Clearmountain featured today on KCRW.

KCRW is a frickin' treasure trove. I'd also go some of the NPR Tiny Desk. Here's Moon Hooch. There's a whole lot of great other stuff to be found in those sessions.

No fuckin kidding. Right?!

So there are ways to download these and convert them to mp3s for off net listening and relistening. In my experience the most rapturous music requires multiple listens to fully appreciate.

Yeah, there's some recordings that should be heard at maximum fidelity, but I think YouTube has opened up a whole new concept of bootlegging. Not that people want to rip off those recordings that should be bought, but just want (in quite a positive way) access to live performances that might never otherwise be heard.

It's a bit of a grey area, and always has been. I can tell you how to capture public videos, if you like.

I've got a tool myself, but those KCRW performances can be downloaded directly without a tool if you know what to look for in the html.

I've recently been listening a lot to one of my new favorite online radio stations:

Minsk House Radio.

Very good and varied mixes, excellent for mundane tasks like driving or cleaning up. They play "Deep, Tech, House, Electronica, Techno, Drum, Jungle."

Oh Wonder live set and interview on KCRW
Reminds me of Prefab Sprout at times. It's the vocals.

http://www.kcrw.com/music/shows/morn…ctic/oh-wonder

And "Led Zepplin re-incarnated"

This is an interesting atmospheric mix of funky bass, piano, electronics, strings, and nice vocals
