| ||Steely Dan Can't Buy a Thrill||4.0|
| ||Trevor Jones & Randy Edelman The Last of the Mohicans|
Utterly fucking majestic in every sense of the word.
| ||Deadeye Dick A Different Story|
New Age Girl is fucking majestic, the kind of wonderful 90s Merseybeat pop rock throwbacks we saw from the Lemonheads and The La's, and it's a shame the album isn't nearly as good as that song. But god damn, what a single, well worth hitting up your Spotify or YouTube.
| ||Edie Brickell Shooting Rubberbands At The Stars|
"What I Am" is a shot of brilliance, sarcastic, funky, and indie at a time where that kind
of combination was actually a huge breath of fresh air. Top notch late 80s alternative
singer-songwriter type stuff.
Bonus points for me when I realized A) My mom used to play this album quite a bit when I
was a wee youngin and B) What I Am is the main sample that Brand Nubian used for their
classic "Slow Down".
| ||Ride Ride|
Drive Blind is a likely candidate for the group's best song, a shimmering, dark, mesmerizing piece of shoegaze and 80s British indie angst, an utterly remarkable song.
| ||Antonio Vivaldi The Four Seasons||5.0|
| ||Damian Marley Welcome To Jamrock||3.5|
|deathofasalesman Zig's drumming at the end of the last LP is pretty godly. I'm a drummer too so I can admire his talent behind the kit.|
|deathofasalesman Damn, are they just not compatible as people? They make great music as a unit. I'm guessing this would be Sweet Heat's bc? https://thesweetheat.bandcamp.com|
|deathofasalesman I'm not from Rhode Island, sorry. Other side of the country in SoCal. Someone I follow on Bandcamp bought the album "Days of Old" and gave it high praise so I checked it out. Phenomenal stuff.|
|owen I remember them posting on fb the band went on hiatus because Jesse had to focus on college, but that was years ago|
