Song of the Day: Frank Zappa - Don’t Eat the Yellow Snow. Over the holiday weekend, with a winter storm affecting much of the east coast, please keep Zappa’s advice in mind.
RIYL Ween, Can, Phish
This is what the fuck I’m talking about
RIYL Tenacious D, Spinal Tap, AC/DC
Song of the Day: Supertramp - The Logical Song. If the singer’s voice makes you want to kill yourself, if even the mention of Supertramp has you heading for the hills, I don’t blame you. I used to be you. But I’ve come to accept that there are some really awesome songs on Breakfast in America, and the production quality is Hall-and-Oates-worthy (seriously, pay $2 for a used vinyl copy, listen on headphones). Bonus points for this song being featured in Magnolia.
RIYL Split Enz, Yes, Phoenix (yes I went there)
Song of the Day: Melvins - Night Goat. Before this week, all I knew about Melvins is that one of the dudes had huge hair, and Nirvana loved them. After listening to Houdini a few times, I think these Nirvana guys might have been on to something.
RIYL Kyuss, Nirvana, Black Sabbath
Just got this in my inbox. A pretty sweet lineup:
Into it. Over It.
Thao And The Get Down Stay Down
Song of the Day: Washed Out - It All Feels Right. A coworker convinced me to give Washed Out a try, so I’ve been playing their 2013 album, Paracosm, quite a lot recently. This song is the best.
RIYL Tame Impala, Chromatics, Jim Noir
