NPR First Listen- Neko Case: Hell-On
 

I'm on my second spin through this one. The whole thing's solid, but the version of Sleep All Summer? Wow.

Don't get toooo cynical.

The funny thing is that I get remarks of some people complaining how music is so empty nowadays and that there are not enough protest songs or songs with social commentary. Usually I think they aren't looking in the right places. I wouldn't expect to find a lot of such songs in mainstream pop anyway. Pop is biz. Though I have to admit I don't follow (or listen to) the current big names in pop very much.

Yea I read that article. I was referring to the comments in you tube which were very informative as well. The nuances and layers to this video are astonishing so many subtle and obvious references that may never be all sorted out. Suffice to say he covered all angles.

Meh going for shock value. Good career move though, people will eat it up. Dude should just stick to producing, writing and acting, his show Atlanta is genius.

Yup. That was just before the eclipse, IIRC. A friend of our friends up there is a drummer in a local band and was also at the show. Said he walked out after just a couple of songs. Damn shame, really.
