I don't have a lot to say today.
Man Or Astro-Man?, "Lo Batt"
Man Or Astro-Man? made (mostly) instrumental rock, in sort of a surf rock vein, but with this kind of retro-future 50's thing going on. Their records were pretty similar and uniformly good, so you can just start with one at random and it'll work out fine. This is from Made From Technetium, for the record.
The Drapels, "Wondering (When My Love Is Coming Home)"
I think the bit where soul artists would name a song something short and pithy and then whack on some big ol' parenthetical to the name is adorable. More bands should do that.
Uh, this is an old Stax record.
Red Hot Chili Peppers, "Thirty Dirty Birds"
Dale Crover, "Thunder Pinky"
That is a seriously classic-rock riff that Crover is playing around with here. I think Crover has earned the right to do that kind of thing. Hell, when he started, classic rock was still being made.
Willie Nelson, "Something To Think About (Demo)"
Having had a few of these demos come up now makes me think I should probably have some proper Willie Nelson albums in my collection. I'll have to figure out some options.
