the taste in my mouth



Thanks to Asthmatic Kitty for hooking us up with this exclusive mp3 from Shapes and Sizes' upcoming LP, Split Lips, Winning Hips, A Shiner. This song is in stark contrast to "Alone/Alive," the album opener that was posted by Fluxblog/Pitchfork last week, wherein Caila Thompson-Hannant's powerful and unique vocals were described as "assertive," "authoritative," and even "bouncy." But on "The Taste in My Mouth," we find her vulnerable and confused, as the song commences under false pretenses, easing itself into as somewhat disjointed banjo-inflected dirge, before swelling into a vast, surreal multi-part orchestral folk exploration. Thompson-Hannant's voice writhes and quivers amid the epic-yet-restrained arrangements, which showcase S&S' considerable growth and provide a welcome contrast when listened to in the context of the album:

mp3:
Shapes and Sizes The Taste in My Mouth

Split Lips, Winning Hips, A Shiner will be released on Asthmatic Kitty on May 22. Here's one more song from the record:

mp3: Shapes and Sizes Alone/Alive

Bill Baird + Jared Van Fleet (photo by Garrison)

{{{{Sunset}}}}) (aka Bill Baird) rolled through Dallas last weekend, and the man brought along a veritable Traveling Wilburys-style Austin all-star team, consisting of Jared Van Fleet (Voxtrot, Sparrow House), Nathan Stein (Tacks, the Early Tapes), Mark David Ashworth, David Longoria (The Black), and a five-man guitar orchestra. In what I would call the best performance I've seen from Bill, fool's eccentric compositions assumed the sonic warmth of '60s AM radio, a sound that recalled the calmer side of George Harrison's All Things Must Pass crossed with the lilting country shuffles of Beck's Sea Change.

{{{{Sunset}}}} It's Already Here

You can't talk about this show without talking about the Taco Cabana jam session which followed. Taco Cabana!

This song eez not so good. And when I say not so good, I mean not good at all. Bad lyrics. Bad production. Bad all around.

i think there was a few more in the audience than on stage

but who's counting? and since when did something like that matter?

oh well, just another anonymous commenter spreading venom. out to take me down a notch or three. which is all fine and fair.

i s'pose i should simply refrain from reading comments about my music. it's hard not to, though... but sometimes one gets curious. i should know better by now.

I was going to add a comment the other day saying that I really liked bill bairds stuff...so maybe I can neutralize the hate here. Also, I don't think people have an issue with your music...as much as they do with the Shapes and Sizes stuff. Of which I partially agree, it's not as strong as your music from the sounds of it...

My comment was definitely about Bill Baird's music as {{{{Sunset}}}}. Bad lyrics. Bad production. Weak song. Not good all around.

On the flip side, he's a very good graphic designer and adds a lot to Sound Team, both from a playing and marketing standpoint.

hey anonymous bill-hater:
what in the hell have you ever done? i am willing to bet that the answer is either a) jack shit, or b) total crap. Either way, I am quite sure that Bill Baird has more musical/artistic talent, skill, and dedication in his little pinkie's fingernail than your anonymous ass has in your whole body, you no-talent, never-been-never-will-be anonymous hoser.
Go choke on a thumbtack.

Taco Cabana Jam out was one of the most fun things I have ever witnessed at a show. Sorry we told that cop your name Bill. I also ganked your set list, It's posted up on the wall next to my Sound Team poster. Thanks.

i think it should be okay for someone to state their opinion about a song, positive or negative, in a forum like GvsB, without people attacking that person or suggesting that they're just "hating". granted, there's not much explained in describing a song as "bad", but sometimes when that's your reaction, you don't really want to put too much effort into elaborating, and i think that's fair.

i do think it would be unfair to present it as an objectively obvious fact, because there are actually a lot of intelligent music lovers who appreciate {{{{sunset}}}}. i also think it's hard to make generalizations about it, because there's such extreme diversity in the songs and recordings.

finally, for the record, i gotta respond to anon and say that if there's one thing bill doesn't know anything about, it's gotta be marketing. which i think he's probably fine with.

but personally, i didn't think there was anything vicious in what anon was saying. put yourself in front of people, and they should be allowed to respond.

I think it's cool to have any kind of attention paid to the music I make. I don't discourage dissent. If anything, it motivates me to get better.

My comment was lamenting the fact that I was reading a comment about myself. Ultimately, extended exposure to that kind of feedback loop is unproductive ( even if I'm reading a positive comment ! )

Of course some people don't like my music . That's the deal every performer must tacitly acknowledge -- when you put yourself out there, you have to take the good with the bad. I wouldn't want or expect everyone to like what I do. If everyone agreed on everything, the world would be very boring !

It's all a work-in-progress and, again, I appreciate any attention paid. Go in peace, brethren!

Gabe:
You want to know what I've done?
I was an assistant engineer on Billy Joel's RIver of Dreams as well as on Beautiful World by Take That (European Top 100 Albums 2007); I also co-wrote the song "Sexual Capacity" for Color Me Badd.
So I think I know a think or two about quality production and songcraft. And I say Bill should stick to what he's good at: graphic design and marketing.

Admittedly, I may have overreacted, no doubt. Those who know me, know I have a temper. It's just hard to read something so uninformed and wrongheaded, especially in regards to someone one deeply respects artistically, and who is, full disclosure, a close friend.
Obviously, anyone can feel anyway they want to about a given piece of music. That said, I am very tired of the glib, lazily-formed flamejobs put forth by anonymous people on the internet. outside of things like billy joel, color me badd, and fall out boy, which readers of GvB could all line up against, doesn't it seem a little more reasonable to put forth one's opinion with a little eensy bit of recognition that taste is highly personal, and with a little bit of respect for the people out there working really hard to make good shit (whether or not you like this song, i defy you to listen to Bill's catalogue and not find some seriously well-written music. Personally I think IAH has a beautiful melody and a quite nice arrangement, among other great qualities.) But I guess I should have just calmly disagreed, rather than stray into the realm of less-than-informed hyperbole myself.
Anon, my apologies, and thankyou for providing your curriculum vitae.

ps, to jared: man, i don't know where you've been, but bill is a motherfucking marketing genius!

I personally can't deal with anyone who puts those gay little brackets around their name...That Tenlon Fort song is pretty dope, but that guy wouldn't befriend me on MySpace, so fuck him! Boo hoo!

The Cavern is the worst place to play, worst sound, and not a great place for audiences either. The stage placement alone is bad enough. However, stupid white trash aesthetic aside, Double Wide is far superior in every respect. They also have a seperate bar and patio if you want to avoid the noize and make "conversation".

PS I'm new to this blog, but do you guys avoid Denton and Dallas bands on purpose? I guess that's what We Shot JR is for, though, right? Just curious...

Today, the Microsoft-owned in-game ad agency said that it has signed an exclusive multiyear agreement with Blizzard. Azerothians opposed to seeing in-game ads in their localworld of warcft goldwatering holes need not worry, however, because the deal is limited to Blizzard's Web sites and Battle.net,the game maker's online-gaming hub. Terms of the deal were not announced, but Massive did note that the agreement is applicable to users in the US, Canada, Europe, South Korea, and Australia.

This game is very interesting and as long as you know the Scions Of Fate gold you will love it and you will go to play this game every day. Instead in this game you will not complain it and you will only want to earn the SOF gold to make yourself become strong. sometimes you can also go to earn the Scions Of Fate money with your friends, because if you play the game with your friends you can be strong more easily. I know every player wants to get more and more cheap SOF gold to become strong. So you can buy sof gold and then you can equipment yourself with the weapons.
