MP3: Further - Overrated
MP3: Further - Bazooka
Okay, so by "Sunday", I meant "Monday night". Oh well. Here is the big news:
IT'S BEACHWOOD SPARKS WEEK HERE AT FUCK YEAH! GO TEAM!
That's right, all week long we'll be posting about Beachwood Sparks side projects/related bands until Saturday, where myself and some contributors will be posting and writing about our favourite BWS jams. Why? Because it's summer, and they're one of the greatest bands we've ever known. Not good enough? Here's the proof in the Beachwood pudding...
Without Further, there would be no BWS. They held so many qualities of the "slacker" early 90's band, but did it while reminding us why that style was so loved. Catchy music to clever lyrics fueled several (sadly) out of print Further releases. Here are 2 of my favourites from the "Griptape lp", the opener "Overrated" to one of the highlights "Bazooka". Included in this post is the video for said track, which looks to be boring but really isn't. It's fueled by a great music track and fantastic musicians.
Tear apart your used bins at your local indie record store. I found 2 Further discs for 1.99 at my job. Amazing.
