Sloan- Peppermint

Right now as I write this, Sloan is performing in our town at the Pyramid Cabaret. Maybe it's laziness or just because it's so freakin' freezing outside, I'm not there, but sitting inside my warm home. I've never actually seen Sloan live despite the fact I'm a pretty big fan. I have their albums from the 90's and a couple from the last ten years, but recently I've been re-spinning those discs and plugging them onto my iPod. I tend to play bands in heavy rotation when I anticipate attending their shows, but instead I'm listening to two recent Sloan recorded in New York and New Jersey.

At these two shows are available for download both in FLAC and mp3 formats. The NYCtaper always posts quality recordings with much better equipment than I have and he's more than willing to share these shows. Congratulations to NYCtaper for being named one of PC Magazine's top 50 blogs of 2009.
