...a buzz in the afternoon staring at the lake...listening to Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain. There may be other music that is also suitable for drinking in the afternoon but, I don't think there's a better one...certainly not in the summer time.
In fact there's not a better record from the 1990's full stop. Really it has to be on a very short list no matter what decade you consider.
We'll come to that shortly...me and The Boy are preparing a video review of the record for your edification.
It's like that sometimes with covers...so, let's have a few more before moving on.
Julie Doiron from Eric's Trip goofing on Shady Lane from Brighten the Corners. Brighten the Corners was not the best album of the 1990's...in fact it was quite a disappointment. Horrible bloodless, deliberate production and almost any version of the songs not on the album is an improvement. This one's fun.
Nobody need ever bother with this one again...it has been obliterated.
Lotta folks have taken a stab at Here...Grandaddy, Built to Spill...but Tendersticks owns it.
Next up we take a long hard look at the business of RocknRoll....and watch with glee as it's burnt to the ground.
