A Soundtrack For The Transcendental Critique
Besides occasional news about my brother, I don't often mention music I've been listening to. But here goes. Before I left Charm City, I was surprised by having a taste for the I'm Wide Awake ditties of young Conor Oberst. Lately, I've been pleased to listen to Slowblow, and my new very favorite band: The Baptist Generals. TBGs are not as hard to pin-down as their press would indicate. I liken them to Violent Femmes meets early R.E.M. meets a Texas lo-fi sensibility. It's what I like.
And somehow I got roped into going to see this strange fellow on the 27th here in Amsterdam.
