  1. "Far" Regina's Next Album :D

    and I love the Beatles chord!
  2. "Far" Regina's Next Album :D

    Listening to Folding Chair - Holy Sh**, I LOVE THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  3. Regina on Jools next Tuesday

    listen to Blue Lips on the jools holland show, then listen to the studio recording... i'm sorry, the studio recording BLOWS. no magic whatsoever. it's epic live - it breathes, it builds, it resounds. how come the studio version sounds like it was recorded in a small room with too little oxygen???
  4. "Far" Regina's Next Album :D

    I download Regina's stuff from wherever I can get it the fastest, but then I buy it legit later on. It hurts too much to wait
  5. "Far" Regina's Next Album :D

    I just listened to a clip of Blue Lips on Amazon for the first time and frankly, I'm a little scared. I f'in love that song. But I love the spacey, distant, nebulous feel it has. Please someone tell me it hasn't been irrevocable deformed by a mutant ELO gene...
  6. "Far" Regina's Next Album :D

    wonderful, wonderful news. i'm glad the whole world will finally know about "genius next door". it's so refreshing to read regina on pitchfork - so many of the "ultra-cool" bands they interview are slick to the point of boring. regina is a breath of resh air ("Ding!")
  7. "Far" Regina's Next Album :D

    and I love the title. what's "the calculation". sounds brillinat already!
  8. Songs you hope to see in the next album

    a little off topic, but not really... anyone else feel like Human of the Year is very sci-fi, very Twilight Zone? look at Regina's eyes in the Stockholm video: . she looks like a Fembot, or a Replicant. so cool
  9. What are you listening to right now?

    cat power – names
  10. What are you listening to right now?

    I made a radio station on Pandora based on Antony and The Johnsons. I'm hearing Rufus Wainright, Nina Simone, John Cale, Regina, Sufjan Stevens, Belle & Sebastian... very nice
  11. Explain Your Name Here!!

    My last name – Lesseraux – is "Lesser" + "aux". we believe my Jewish ancestors added the aux to avoid persecution in France. They had already been pogrommed out of Russia
  12. Explain Your Name Here!!

    "oneofmanymonkeys" is an attempt to be less self-absorbed
  13. Songs you hope to see in the next album

    As much as I love Blue Lips, Rowboats, Loveology, and all the other stuff that hasn't appeared on an album yet, what I most want to hear is COMPLETELY NEW stuff! How many new songs do you guys think there will be? And by "new" I mean never before recorded or played live. How many completely new songs are there on a typical Regina album?
  14. NEW blog post for Israel!

    Me too. Jewish on my dad's side, anyway (so I don't qualify according to the state of Israel, but to the Nazis, I would have)
  15. NEW blog post for Israel!

    Regina's words are beautiful, as always. Hamas is not Palestine – Hamas is a death cult, Palestinians are people like you and me. But when i read something so in depth i wonder why there is no mention of the Israeli settler movement. Hard-line Israeli settlers - many of whom view Palestinians as little more than bugs - have been carving up the Palestinian territories for years. It's a big prison. And from the point of view of Palestinians, Israel is the obvious cause of all this. In such a situation, people radicalize, and the Hamases of the world thrive. ...And in saying this, I am not being "anti-semitic," as Regina might believe. Nationalism and the seemingly innate urge to protect one's homeland are stronger forces than politics, ideology, even religion. Imagine what would happen if Mexico tried to take back even an inch of Texas (which used to be theirs) – you better believe this country would quickly develop its own good ol' boy version of Hamas, with insane Christianity in place of insane Islam. And while I'd be the first to critique this development, I wouldn't let Mexico off the hook. Hamas is an evil death cult – about as well-intentioned as the Manson cult. But Israel and the U.S. have to tell the Meir Kahane's of the world that enough is enough. I still love you, Regina!
