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.
