Kraftwerk tonight (7pm show #earlybird). Dinner first at Blackbird and Henry. Gameday tomorrow. We tailgate with a random group of futbol and football fans at MLK and San Jac. I’ll be wearing a burnt orange shirt. Look for me.
PYAITK time. You ever hear a song and latch on to it, only to find out that it was by a band you would have NEVER thought would put this song out as a single? Here is one such song from a band I decided I wouldn’t pay attention to. You see, the sophomore slump is a real thing. Most bands have their whole lives writing the first album only to be out of experiences or worse, writing a hot mess on the road. After their intarwebs buzzband status from “Keep You” blowed them up, it would seem Wild Belle figured they would just go on attack with an in your face break up song as a lead single. “Giving Up On You” is raucous thing with a great bassline, ringing guitar chords, the horns echoed for a proper Ska solo. Color me surprised.
