Kinda dig this tune.
The last time I had a guest DJ stint 'round these parts, I started off by not playing The Beths. So that gave me an obvious starting point this time around. I've been wanting to find a good live version of this song for quite a while now, and this one's pretty decent.

I was recently reminded of the fabulous comments generated by this song, so I decided to check out whether Sleigh Bells had any live songs about topics other than A Machines and B Machines. Turns out, there were a bunch of options to choose from.
I wasn't expecting to really like what I found, but I actually like it quite a lot.

This is normally outside of my wheelhouse, but I picked up their most recent and I LOVE IT!
A week before last, a wrong way driver hit a van going the opposite direction. He and all three occupants of the van were likely immediately killed. In the van was the members of the band Her's, an up and coming band from Liverpool. Also in the van was their tour manager, my good friend Trevor.
I always thought this was the case, but I've been surprised to find out just how much of an impact Trevor had on the local scene. I've been trying real hard not to think about it, but if you don't mind, I'm going to take the next few days to remember my friend.
Today, we'll listen to Stephen Fitzpatrick & Audun Laading of Her's, also taken far too soon.
Have at it, Citizens.

So this album just got BNM from P4K. I can't find the one song I really like so here's another one instead.
Insatiable, 2016 continues its grizzy quest to remove happiness from the world.
