Over the course of December, I’ll present a series of my own end of 2012 lists. Unlike many, I won’t give you a best of list because that’s no fun. Instead I’ll give you lists of my favorite things from 2012. Because let’s face it: the best stuff isn’t always what you love the most.
My favorite live bands of 2012:

Now, Now is currently my favorite band. I love listening to Threads and obviously think you all should listen to the album as well. They did a session over at Audiotree a few weeks ago and the entire one hour session is now available to stream. The session is sprinkled with brief interjections of interview questions that gives you a better insight to the trio’s personal and musical lives.

My good buddy, Liam McCormack, played a gig over the weekend at the Living Room in the Lower East Side where he premiered tons of new tracks with the help of some amazing backing musicians. Among them was a new jam called “Waiting” which I had the pleasure of watching him perform underneath a tree in Brooklyn Park Bride earlier that day. We chatted about his music throughout the weekend and what he felt about his latest album (and first full band one) and what’s up next for yellowbirddd. He’s recently been playing with a stripped down version of a full band, usually with some combination of a piano, upright bass, pedal steel and drums. While he may be a ways away from recording a new LP, he’s been busy working on tons of new material, which further expands on his amazing lyrical skills.
Check out “Waiting” below. I filmed it on my mobile phone, so the quality isn’t too terrific, but you can still live the magic that is yellowbirddd.
One of my favorite local bands, What Laura Says, was in LA recently and just posted this video of them performing “Sun Is” acoustically off of their new EP, Talk. Check it out below:
