I don't relate to the culture represented in this video. I'm decades older. I don't even understand all the lyrics. I never lived in Seattle, though I visited it multiple times for music events, but I did live in Portland -- south of there on the Columbia River -- for a while. (Glad to be well east of there now, on the other side of the continent.). But I was exposed it. Hipsters everywhere. But I just like this because it's got rhythm, some rap lite, and soul with a break beat. And some attitude.
This one is for my friend Waveform, aside from being a gun nut, he was also a horn player as am I. Sometimes our conversations drifted off into music, so I thought this particular song was appropriate for his passing. Gods speed Wave.
^^ Stunning. Simply stunning. ^^
Brought tears to my eyes.
I was hoping someone who knew Waveform would post something in this thread for him. I know he posted here. Need to surf back through to see what songs/tracks.
I remember listening to that song, and the entire album (back when vinyl was still all there was, and the Internet didn't yet exist) on the planes of N TX, on a home stereo system at a loud volume while sitting in an easy chair between the speakers, in a rickity, leaky, rental house ($95/mo) near the end of a deadend road in a small town (so no close neighbors) during grad school.
Blew me away then. Blows me away now. Pink Floyd pushed the bar up two full notches with their music. So amazing that the original members still play it and feel every note, every change.
