Friday mp3

Friday, 30 August 2002

last week­end was fresh­man ori­en­ta­tion. this week­end is fresh­man dis­ori­en­ta­tion. *evil laugh* they’ll be ok, i’ll watch out for ‘em.

i’m go­ing to try some­thing new for Fridays. I guess it needs a name so I’ll call it the Friday mp3. Every Friday, for a 24 hour pe­riod or there­abouts i’ll put up an mp3 for down­load­age and talk about it a lit­tle bit as well.

This week’s choice is The Dark is Rising by Mercury Rev. I first heard of them on Last Call with Carson Daly from David Bowie. They are hard to clas­sify in a speci­fic genre other than in­die, but the wail­ing lyrics and mélange of styles give it an in­ter­est­ing alien­ated fla­vor that is a wel­come es­cape from the ‘my ‘rents suck cuz no one un­der­stands why i like be­ing a fuckup’ nu-metal bands. Other good songs in­clude: Night and Fog, Goddess on a Highway, and Spiders and Flies.
