The Breeders – Pod

I dialed this album up last night before bed, realizing I hadn’t listened to it in well over 15 years and perhaps not far from 20 years. Classic lo-fi pre-grunge alt-rock. This was always my favorite music of the Breeders.

I Can’t Imagine . . .

. . . breaking up ever sounding as beautiful as it does here. #EarwormRuckus

Btw, as ecclectic as my musical tastes have always been, old school classic rock from the 60s and 70s has always been a shallow dive for me. I need to delve deeper at some point.

A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular by Hooverphonic

The debut album by Belgium’s very own HOOVERPHONIC. Released July 1996, it’s hard to believe this timeless electronic/trip-hop classic is 23 years old now. Its place in my #NiteMusik lineup is predictable and secure. Check it out in the player below.

Alice + The Devil and Dinosaurs

Alice in Chains’ 5th long-player from 2013.

As a longtime ALICE IN CHAINS fan, I don’t really need extra motivation to listen to their catalog, but incidentally being in an AiC tribute band now has me listening even more intently than I normally do (and I’m quite the intentional and nerdy listener). Today I  specifically listened to the band’s latter three albums for potential songs to cover and I have to admit that I’ve been giving The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here (2013), their fifth LP of six, a bit of a bad rap for a few years now. Mainly because I think its immediate predecessor Black Gives Way to Blue (2009) was better overall. And then its successor,  Rainier Fog (2018) arrived and was also a superior album and it definitely had me taking the piss on Dinosaurs in comparison to the two that it is sandwiched between. And that’s just it, today I realized that is really its only crime. Dinosaurs  is actually a pretty darn good album judged on its own with a few standout tracks like “Hollow”, “Pretty Done”, “Stone” and “Phantom Limb.” I’d say now that my only real criticism of it is that the songs aren’t as revelatory and intense (as they are on Blue) or as fresh and fun (as they are on Fog). A misdemeanor, to be sure, but not a felony, all things considered.
