What is best in life? How about Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood giving over 100,000 people a beautiful and haunting rendition of “Give Up the Ghost” at Bonnaroo 2012? How about 25 songs and 2 hours and 20 minutes? That is some good Radiohead.
We have not been more impressed with another band than the sounds of Jack Tatum’s Wild Nothing project, and “Golden Haze” is one of our favorite tracks. With a a beginning that resembles The Smiths, he just sounds confident in a cool breeze sort of way.
We always wonder if, at some point in say 1978, John Lennon sat around with an acoustic guitar, played a few chords, then busted out “In My Life” and said to himself, “Oh yeah, I wrote that one, too.” Because this is one of thousands of songs he wrote, and its better than 99.9% of all songs ever written.
Just like Randall touring you through the Honey Badger, Bill Murray takes you on a tour of the new Wes Anderson film, “Moonrise Kingdom.” We can’t wait to see this, and because Bill Murray doesn’t do too many films these days, its like a lunar/solar/whatever eclipse.
Everybody’s laughing, everyone’s having a good time, and we just felt like playing up to a good mood on a foggy SF morning. Where did the sun go? Beat’s us, but with our local sports talk radio station playing Jaylib instrumentals in the afternoons now, we want to get in the same vein.
Let’s go with why we really began to get into the Beastie Boys… the jazz, experimental, jammed out, stony instrumentals, and “Sabrosa” from Ill Communication, with MCA’s funked up stand-up bass, and here played live so well, is just perfect.
