Ballad of a Patient Man

Ballad of a Patient Man

(compiled Aug 31, 2014)

A long overdue playlist (this one’s LOADED) inspired by artists I recently saw at Green Man (Augustines, Highasakite, Kurt Vile, Sun Kil Moon, Boy & Bear, Sharon Van Etten, The War on Drugs, Nick Mulvey, Jonathan Wilson, Vancouver Sleep Clinic) and elsewhere (The Twilight Sad, Owl John, Imogen Heap), as well as artists releasing new singles (Passport to Stockholm, Sir Sly, Saint Raymond, Catfish and the Bottlemen) and new albums (Sivu, Angus & Julia Stone, Trevor Hall). The playlist title is inspired by a more obscure song (Ballad of a Patient Man) by Augustines, who are hands down my favorite band at the moment. I also posted a few gems from their pre-Augustine days when Billy Eric were in a band called Pela.

Fortunately, I have been able to see Augustines 4 times since January, which included their recent set at Green Man festival in Wales. And, what CRAZY ODDS that I would not only get to see them in their birthday month (their birthdays inspired the band name), but that I would get to see them at the PINNACLE (pretty much) of their birthday month. An amazing performance that I will never forget, and I don’t think they will either:  “…such an amazing experience for us. The crowd spontaneously sang Happy Birthday to us under the night sky. Its hard to describe to you how big our smiles were. Special thanks to Wales, and cheers to all of you. Best birthday ever.” -Bill, Eric, and Rob   🙂
(I’m just a BIT BITTER that I won’t get to see them when they return to London in December because I’ll already be in Melbourne for a research exchange…RAWR!)

Here are two reviews (Augustines and Sun Kil Moon) I posted from Green Man:
