Nice to see that Parker and Co. have figured out how to pull of most of his studio tricks in a live setting.
First off, let me mention that this video isn’t safe for work unless your boss is into some weird shit.
Anywho, apologies for my lack of post yesterday. I got busy and somehow wound up in NYC. Not that I’m complaining about that at all. Then I went here! And saw Kim Gordon help cover “Sister Ray”! And watched Lee Ranaldo play “Eric’s Trip” with Parquet Courts as his backing band! And about a half dozen other relatively cool things! All in all, not bad for a day that started off working in Philly.
I still believe that the Kevin Parker-featuring “Daffodils” off of Mark Ronson’s Uptown Special (maybe you’ve heard of it?) is a fantastic song. I’ve also long maintained that Foals are still a great band, even as they get more polished in their journey away from Antidotes. So how convenient it is that the band offered up their take on the song during a recent stop at Triple J.
On the subject of live music, Thomas Watkiss will be in the studio tonight, playing live and blowing minds. Tune in at 9PM, www.wrct.org.
It’s the weekend and I’m ready to get weird. And by “get weird”, I mean “start posting my daily songs again”. If I was in the mood to get weird, though, this would be a good jam to do it to.
