I should be safe from stealing anybody's thunder if I play 2017 bands I haven't played in...a little while...
I heard these guys have a #1 charting song now, but nibbish already played it, so here's a nice long jam to ease you into your Friday instead.
I'm pretty sure that this one is my runaway favorite song of the year. I had the pleasure of seeing them play it live with DK when the band came through town a couple of months ago. The big BOOM right before the breakdown was my favorite part of the show, and is probably my favorite moment in music this year.
Apologies for the late post (and overposting on CH's solid second choice), but...
It's nibbish week, so you get War on Drugs.
Hey look new War on Drugs!!!
"Beer commercial lead-guitar sh*t" - Mark Kozelek
(Spoiler alert: Although it will be somewhere near the top of my 2014 list, I don't think I'm going to get to anything off of Benji this week. That's Koz's punishment for being such a grumpy old dick.)
h/t to my friend teddy w. for turning me onto The War On Drugs. I've had Slave Ambient on in the studio for the last several days, and that's a good thing.
If someone were to describe a song as Richard Ashcroft from the Verve singing "Anti-Christ Television Blues" from the Arcade Fire I am pretty sure I would like it.
So yeah, this is me describing a song as a dude who sounds like Richard Ashcroft from the Verve singing a song that sounds like "Anti-Christ Television Blues" from the Arcade Fire.
