    Lisa Hannigan water & music is my cup of thea! Just better then The Little Stevies who only plays in the sand but hey are also nice.

    Water and the beach seems to be the theme for me this week. Lisa Hannigan, The Little Stevies and Opus Orange are it for me. Maybe just because the summer wasn’t that sunny this year.

    I love The Little Stevies :) :) :) I remember when they came to play in my town, but they were playing in a bar and at the time I was underage so couldn’t go :(

    Herman: So you’ll be recording in the middle of the ocean?!

    Captain: I agree. I can’t believe it’s turning autumny already.

    Tess: Are the Little Stevies old enough to be in a bar?

    pepamahina: I wish my Japanese was better.

    Sadly, The Little Stevies video “contains content from UMG, who has blocked it in your country (USA) on copyright grounds.” Waaa! … but Lisa Hannigan is stellar and the Japanese puppets are adorable.

    Love the Heftones and Lil Reve. Sticks in your head like a jelly roll sticks to your stomach.

    Someday, Al, we’ll sit down over a bottle of good scotch and you can explain U900 to me. Two animated knit animals singing a Michael Jackson song with ukuleles?

    Did I come in in the middle of the movie?

  11. Woodshed September 6th, 2011 7:41 am

    Foinnse: Agreed.

    Jackalope: Balls, and I was going to put it on the front page. Thanks for letting me know.

    Phredd: Glad you like.

    Craig: Might take more than one bottle.

    Those knitted puppets are just adorable. I wouldn’t mind them winning video of the year again. Opus Orange was nice too. Reminds me of Let’s Go Surfing by The Drums (Opus Orange were first, weren’t they?) And thanks a million for adding my video! Cheers, Nicholas

    Nicholas: Thanks for your video this week. Excellent song.

    always love the Heftones (and Lil’ Rev).

    Nicholas Abersold has style to spare. I wish I could make interesting and amusing videos.

    What model aria uke is Lisa using in this video, I can see its an aeria, but If anyone knows the exact model number, and if its a concert?

  16. Woodshed September 16th, 2011 8:09 pm

    Gage: Looks most like an ACU-250. Concert size.
