Making wfh better by digging out some old favourites
First two RK albums are near perfect imho. Sorta staggering the cliff they fell off afterwards. This is so good though, the sound of empty highways and American suburbia at the turn of the millennium. Jenny Lewis is so fierce on this; “they say California is a receipe for a black hole / I say I’ve got my best shoes on”. Just the best.
Somewhere I have the original Fierce Panda CD issue of this. Think I bought it cos both Kerrang and NME slagged it off for being twee? Glad I did anyway. Just a lovely set of small town snapshots. Definitely vibed with the me of 2002, living in a small town.
Plus listening to some new stuff
Rocketship have been on my radar for forever (classic US indie pop band) but I’ve never really listened to them before. This is good though. All over the place stylistically but it manages to work.
