Before I begin revealing the secrets of my musical past and present, I'll say a few general words regarding our residency this month at Casey's. We'll be there every Saturday. The Lonely Wild will be joining us this weekend, which personally, I am looking forward to. The World Record will be rocking out the following weekend, and we'll close up shop with none other than The Far West (also looking forward to these). It's going to be a fun month, but also a busy one for us. We'll be traversing into the studio first thing in August to record another record (and sell some extremely sentimental personal belongings and some less than necessary organs to help subsidize the cost). So wish us luck! Now without further ado--or at least much more ado--Five songs from my past and present that I would like to share with you.
5. Mr. Bungle - Goodbye Sober Day
The Album California was given to me as a gift by my eldest brother (I have three) as I was mid-way through my high-school experience. As someone who was always looking for something "different" to listen to (I use quotes because I have not quite uncovered the standards for normality when it comes to listening to music. I just knew I didn't like most of what my peers were listening to) this was the perfect gift. This song in particular had a little bit of everything, blending genres, interesting melodies, rhythmic patterns; it almost made my head explode, it didn't though. If you have time and you haven't heard it before, I highly recommend giving the whole album a listen.
