Song would appear to be an homage to the Grateful Dead’s St. Stephen. Same key, same ’69 Garcia sounding guitar tone, and the riff is nearly copied minus a few notes. Good song!

That was filmed in the lot of a Phish show up in Saratoga Springs. I was there. Prolly should’ve given the dude a hi-five.

TIME AFTER TIME, WAS MY LEAST FAVORITE SONG!!!

Nice write-up.

Great tune, actual a cover staple of Pearl Jam sets for years.

No 4th Of July and NOT A SINGLE SONG FROM SIDE-B OF DOWN ON THE UPSIDE?! C’mon now son!

Go listen to Tighter & Tighter and No Attention and Overfloater and Boot Camp again. Your ears miss them.

Recent Yo La Tengo shows have been two-set affairs……they open with an acoustic set, and the second half of the show is electric. So they start off by playing acoustic Ohm, and then the fully amped electric version on the album later in the show.

They essentially play it the same way, but the acoustic version is rather whispered and lovely.

I think it’s one of their single best songs in years, so it makes sense. So nice, they play it twice!

Even if this wasn’t a great album (and it is), the existence of P.M. Dawn was completely justified by the “I’m Just a Human” spoof in Fear of a Black Hat.

Hilarity ensued a few years back when Carl Newman okayed the use of New Pornographer’s “The Bleeding Heart Show” for a University of Phoenix ad. He claims he thought it was a real brick and mortar school in Arizona. And there’s another recent Univ. Phoenix ad that utilizes Django Django.

But oddly, they’ve yet to license a song from Phoenix themselves.

99.9 percent sure the other drummer dude was Kid Millions from Oneida. He also sat in for the entirety of Night 4 of the recent Maxwell’s Hannukah run. There’s some well documented bro-love between the two bands. Such a killer tune.
