BFF.fm Archive Link: PR013 – Bring That Beat Back
It all started with an electronic track in a coffee shop. I thought, man, when are we finally gonna get that soundtrack from Johnny Jewel. Not the one he put out that we didn’t ask for, but Dear Tommy. It’s coming. (Well, the mp3s are here , but the vinyl is still coming.) In the meantime, let’s go back to 2012 and revisit B/E/A/T/B/O/X by G/L/A/S/S/C/A/N/D/Y. No, that many slashes is totally not annoying to type.
Very excited for new music from Nine Inch Nails and David Bowie. What is it, 1995 again? Bowie released an EP called “No Plan” exactly one year after his birthday, just short of one year after his death. It’s eerie. It’s brilliant. The guy had some serious musical and artistic chops. New Reznor puts me in the mind of old Reznor, back when I was an angry young lad. It works for middle age, too. Same but different.
Continuing to play every song on the Warpaint and Duchess Says albums. Both among my favorite releases of 2016. (See previous show.) Songs going out to my daughter from Liars, Savages, and Frank Black. Some TV Girl, Helado Negro, and Chook Race thrown in for good measure.
