new face, same old smile
by Sean
Please note: MP3s are only kept online for a short time, and if this entry is from more than a couple of weeks ago, the music probably won't be available to download any more.


On November 26th, Said the Gramophone celebrated its sort-of second birthday. While the site's been running since March of 2003, it wasn't until November of that year until I found the will or the resources to start hosting and writing about mp3s. Just about every weekday since then, - thanks to Jordan, and Dan, and you, - we have been sharing our favourite songs.

Said the Gramophone is (as of right now) 559 entries long, and just under 225,000 words (yes, two hundred and twenty-five thousand). It's longer than Moby Dick and certainly not as good. But we're going to keep trying.

In honour of our second birthday, StG has a new look. Our lovely redesign was only eight months in the making and comes thanks to the fantastic work of Neale McDavitt-Van Fleet. Neale not only designed things and cobbled together most of the code, he did the illustrations above. And he's a good friend, too.

Please let us know if you spot any bugs.

I'd like to thank you all for coming back, day after day. I hope you'll not stop, even as we reach our middle age in blog years.

For the geeky-curious, I've hand-transcribed basically every song that StG has posted since November 2003. There are going to be a lot of omissions because I skimmed, rather than reading, the whole thing. But it still makes me pretty proud to browse that list and see all the wonderful things we've found. (And also how many more wonderful things we've left out!)

You can read that long list after the jump.

And thanks again, on this chilly Edinburgh evening, for reading our writing. You are the warmest audience we could ask for.


Exploding Hearts - "Throwaway Style". In the summer of 2003, most of the Exploding Hearts died in a car crash. I lacked the words then, and I still do today. But what I know is that Guitar Romantic still exists, in gaudy yellow-pink-and-black, and it's not going anywhere. One of my favourite rock albums of the past ten years, this a record of buzzing garage-pop that's feels like it musta been scalpeled from some 60s/70s/80s scene, cut from a chest hot and slippery. As Said the Gramophone throws away its old style, here is two minutes and fifty-four seconds of glad punk splendor, something so charged with life that it's impossible to think of its authors as passed on: something that brings them to us with breath and sweat and electric guitars, immortal finger-snapping scoundrels who will bum you a smoke, if you ask. It's mixed so loud that you don't even have to turn it up (but you should).


Songs:Ohia - "Coxcomb Red (Joe Beats Experiment remix)". Most of the best remixes make a song more awesome. They improve its dance moves. But here's a remix whose raison d'etre is something altogether opposite. The beats here are weak, empty and echoing. They're there but they're not going to grab your feet or hips. You hear the room around the beats, the reflecting walls and slamming doors. You hear the groupie chatter. You hear the man in a room, a man singing his earnest rock-blues (and he's one of my dearest artists in the world), but you hear the echo, the walls and doors and groupies. You hear the space. You hear the ache and emptiness of standing at a gig, of listening to a song, and of hearing it just as a song - words sung, notes played. Because sometimes the music won't give you what you want, or you don't know how to take what it's offering. So you just stand there, you sway, and you hope that maybe it'll just hold you.

The Joe Beats Experiment presents Indie Rock Blues includes remixes of Neutral Milk Hotel, M Ward, Andrew Bird, The Make Up, and all sorts of other nonsense. More importantly still: it includes artwork by William Schaff. [BUY]


Other things -

I didn't see Wolf Parade on Friday. A pileup on the highway to Glasgow more than doubled the trip-time to Glasgow, and as they were the first of two openers at a gig that wanted people out in time for a club night, it just wasn't possible. I was sad, yes. Tonight - Mogwai.

NPR blame Dan for kick-starting Clap Your Hands Say Yeah's hype. "Their name both attracted me and repulsed me at the same time," says Beirne. Hooray! [applause, yeah]

There's also an NPR story on NaSoAlMo (National Solo Album Writing Month). It's only a couple days till the deadline (!). Said the Gramophone will (hopefully) be providing hosting for the finished product of a bunch of entrants, and I can't wait to hear them. More on that later.

Very nice! Looks good to me although in my opinion the calendar on the side is underused and unnecessary. I like the color scheme though!

Posted by Zach at November 28, 2005 3:17 AM

Sean, Dan and Jordan,

First I'd like to thank you for the music and musing the three of you have been providing the last two years. Thank you!

And second - I like your new design. Nice color scheme and nice illustrations. Nicely done, Neale!

In short just keep on keeping on!


Posted by Kenneth at November 28, 2005 4:16 AM

From an old January post:
"So yes - the Arcade Fire are back. And if they can make a record which meets the promise of their material, it will explode. Maybe I'll explode. Maybe."

haha! Right on.

Posted by Matthew at November 28, 2005 4:50 AM

Congratulations on your 2nd Anniversary of sorts! Nice redesign. Keep up the great work - Ive been learning A LOT about music from you.

Posted by (Aunty) Debbie at November 28, 2005 7:35 AM

Congrats on your anniversary. And the new site looks awesome. Thanks! Heather

Posted by Heather at November 28, 2005 8:19 AM

Alright! The new color is soothing. Thank you.

Posted by tim+ at November 28, 2005 9:31 AM

Very awesome redesign. I really appreciate its simplicity, especially when combined with the refreshing lack of ads and other useless visual clutter.

Posted by ian at November 28, 2005 11:18 AM

Today is a day for celebrating. I love the Exploding Hearts song.

Great redesign Neale!

goodbye tangmonkey, hello soothing green and butterflies!

Posted by Robin at November 28, 2005 1:11 PM

I've had a couple of Exploding Hearts mp3's since the album came out, and it's been at the top of my 'must buy if you can find' list since then as well. It's never in London record shops. Maybe I should insound it, finally. 'Throwaway Style' is eeeee-lectric.

Posted by gooblar at November 28, 2005 1:20 PM

Oh yeah! Nice redesign! I really like the post-titles in white.

Posted by gooblar at November 28, 2005 1:21 PM

congratulations, and thanks for the music.

Posted by kathryn at November 28, 2005 1:24 PM

I'm digging the new look! It's very awesome, and I'm excited to hear the songs:ohia remix. nice post.
My friend and I started a blog, and I was wondering if it would be cool if we linked to your blog.. we just wanted to make sure it was cool before going ahead and linking.
Thanks! Keep up the awesome work!

Posted by earlgrey at November 28, 2005 2:31 PM

The redesign is beautiful and simple, with a thoroughly chamring home-made look to it. But I wish it were paired with a favicon.ico. :-) (I tried making you one; it sucked; I deleted it.)

Congratulations on your anniversary-of-sorts. I couldn't tell you the number of great artits and songs I've found through your (collective) writings here. Keep up the good work.

Posted by Tuwa at November 28, 2005 3:25 PM

oooh...pretty and soothing green. I like it!

Posted by matthew at November 28, 2005 3:35 PM

I find it amazing that I remember almost every single post from the early days. I still have all of those songs in my itunes, and bought a whole grip of albums directly from those recommendations. There's some amazing shit in there.

thanks for everything, and keep up the good work.

Posted by robot mark at November 28, 2005 3:58 PM

Nice redesign. For some reason I am hungry for a nice cucumber avocado bisque...

Mogwai, cool!

Posted by rodii at November 28, 2005 4:25 PM

The individual RSS pages have a humungous "Said the gramophone" at the top, which doesn't look so good.. But otherwise the new look is very nice indeed.

Posted by kieran at November 28, 2005 5:31 PM

Hi Darlin'
REALLY like your new look. It is a wonderful thing that you could introduce me to your kind of music,
Luv always !!

Posted by Zaidie Ben at November 28, 2005 6:21 PM

Ladies and gentlemen: my family loves me, and I love them. :)

The super-huge StG title on individual entry pages and the search page is a feature, not a bug, but if people really dislike it I'll consider changing it. There's something cool about using such big, bold text.

Needless to say - thank you all for the very, very kind words. I'm so glad you're here.

Posted by Sean at November 28, 2005 7:01 PM

This is now the prettiest blog in the world, and probably also the best. I'm painting my walls this colour right now.

Posted by David at November 28, 2005 7:49 PM

Greenliness is next to godliness. Nice work, Neale.

Congrats on two years of sustained amazement!

Posted by moominpappa at November 28, 2005 8:52 PM

The new look is spectacular- that green is a shade that approaches 'appetizing'. Congrats on the 2 year anniversary, all three of you not only possess impeccable music taste, but are also responsible for some truly compelling and stylistically impressive prose (makes me jealous). Keep up the great work- hope you’re all well!

Posted by Kevin at November 28, 2005 11:28 PM

This design is absolutely lovely. Thanks for all the music & writing -- I've found some of my favourite songs here, many of which I would probably never have heard otherwise.

Posted by meghan at November 29, 2005 4:51 AM

Revel in the glory that is pistachio.

Happy (belated) anniversary, you guys. Thanks for all the music 'n inspiration.

Posted by chris at November 29, 2005 11:48 AM

Man, this is a gorgeous retrospective. I had a lot of fun trying to pin down the first post I read - I believe it was sometime in late Sept. 2004 but I'm not sure. Sean's post-US-election post from Nov. 4 is still one of the best reaction pieces I've ever read. I can't help but think of it every time I listen to "Wake Up".

Posted by Alia at November 29, 2005 1:35 PM

lovely redesign. and i'm so glad you posted the coxcomb red remix for all these people to hear! i've been in love with it sice i first heard it on some college webcast a few months ago. it's one of the examples i use of a remix that i like better than the original song. something i remember onceuponatime thinking wouldn't exist.

Posted by justin at November 29, 2005 6:49 PM

I've been reading your site since January 2004. Funny, I remember thinking I'd come late to the party *then*.

Posted by Tuwa at November 29, 2005 10:53 PM

I wouldn't have agreed that a change was needed but the new look and colr is....soothing to this angry, brown man's soul. Your site is helping music win the fight against porn for the soul of the internets.
