Woooohooooo! The big day is here……1 day early. Thanks to an alert from THE KEXP BLOG in Seattle (another reason to love the Pacific Northwest) I snagged the new Radiohead, The King of Limbs, a day early. Listening now and, seriously, I’m feverish.
….and this is how I felt while waiting the 2 minutes it took for the WAV file to download (scroll to 1:20 for actual footage of me- sort of):
What’s a straight line if it ain’t desperate? That’s what I always say.
Today, Merge Records (Have you heard of The Arcade Fire?) released 12 Desperate Straight Lines from one of my favorite rule-breaking bands, Telekinesis. Listen to Jason Narducy’s (Bob Mould band) filthy bass on “Car Crash” and tell me this doesn’t qualify.
