Act One, Scene One (Duke Orsino’s Palace): Enter Duke Orsino, Curio, and other Lords (Musicians Attending): Duke Orsino: If music be the food of love.. play on; Give me excess of it, that, surfeiting, the appetite may sicken, and so die.
Seems the folks over at Joyful Noise have produced another beautiful box set and, as is their tradition, it’s a limited edition (naturally). What’s special about this one? It’s Kishi Bashi! JN‘s exciting description: Announcing… three elaborate 7″ singles from Kishi Bashi! Each of the three releases features a single from Kishi Bashi‘s acclaimed debut […]
While searching around the internet, scouting for interesting spots to visit in New York City, I came across a wooly mammoth of a man with a penchant for guitar and a knack for the absurd. His stark comic stylings remind me so much of a few of our PaisleyMembers that I decided he must be […]
That’s right, not only is Christmas rapidly approaching but, a mere 2,010 years and four days after the (approximate) birth of Jesus, we celebrate another momentous occasion: the birth of the PaisleyTunes blog.

Speaking of Tucson… …wait, we weren’t?

The bonus disc, entitled Spiritoso, was recorded a long way out of Tucson, during the bands 2011 European tour, while […]
Emily Loizeau is French, and, not unlike our very own Jerracid, was born of mixed parents, who, simply through the logistics of raising a daughter with family spanning the English Channel, ultimately exposed her to a great deal of cultural diversity. Good for them. Loizeau’s music, while staid, is easy to listen to. She is […]
While many of the songs on Jimmy’s Show have appeared in the past and are familiar to those of you who subscribed to the now defunct Noir Club, to the rest of the world, Jim Noir has only released three prior albums (not the 27 singles, demos, & EPs you may or may not have […]
Some people go through life erecting informational barriers, filtering their otherwise unobstructed lifetime flow of knowledge & experience into reduced, albeit organized, columns of easily digestible & cataloged, binary stacks: This stack is good, this stack is bad; I’ll eat red food, I won’t eat blue food; These songs are sunshine for my ears, these […]
This post should prove to be a genuine crowd pleaser: Yes, it is officially confirmed that, English folk-rockers, Mumford & Sons has completed their follow-up album to the double grammy-nominated Sigh No More.
