I’ll be dat guy. Just gave it a second listen, this time with headphones. Woooofta. Some crazy sonic blippeez and gurgles and channel slides and a lot more going on than through computron speakers. It’s good either way, but a lot more fun with headphones on.

I’m digging it more than anything since A Ghost is Born. Even seems Loose Fur-y at times which I think is a good direction to work towards. Maybe Jim O’Rourke was involved in some capacity? I know there were some conflicting reports about a new Loose Fur record coming this year or next.

Was digging a couple of months back and found this. At the veeeeery end of this article it mentions,

“Kotche is also a member of the trio Loose Fur, along with Jim O’Rourke and Jeff Tweedy, who have just recorded their third studio record.”

Maybe one of the records he mentioned?

Yeah, it’s kind of like how I always make sure to fart in my car right before I get out. Just in case somebody steals it while I’m shopping at Home Depot.

March 11, 2015 on Kanye West – “Awesome”

A big reason why I like this song is because it reminds me that the Ghostbusters theme exists.

If some of these returntorootsfolksongs have a bit of noisy electric guitar flourishes in them (a la Pickerel Lake), I’ll be a happy camper.

Maybe it’s just me, but I feel like “Santeria” builds to something even more Sublime, than “Santaria” does.

September 2, 2014 on Foxygen – “Cosmic Vibrations”

Eeeeeh. I was at this show. There was quite a bit of cat calling/”look how funny I am” type-things being shouted in between songs, and I’m pretty sure the gang around this camera was involved. At one point, SVE just said “Uhhh…help?” to her bandmates. I mean, she took it all in stride, but it was preeeetttaaay annoooooying.

December 23, 2012 on Frank Ocean – “Wiseman”

I don’t really think he’s “jumping the shark”. The past Christmas records have all had little rambling 1-take tunes like this. Maybe the song doesn’t warrant a post, but it’s another listen from a goofyfun set of new songs.
