Friday Night Jukebox: Random Rules Edition
From the great American road trip album (apologies for the bizarre imagery in the video):
Anyway, The Silver Jews are a pretty fantastic band. A few years ago, Neutral Milk Hotel’s “In the Aeroplane over the Sea” was the great, undiscovered indie rock gem of the 1990s. Since then, they’ve enjoyed something of a career renaissance (if such a thing is possible for a reclusive singer-songwriter who won’t perform his own songs), so I think The Silver Jews are now due for ‘unheralded classic’ status. Other than a few close friends, I can’t think of too many people who enjoy American Water, so get ahead of the curve and give it a listen.
Erik here. I couldn’t help myself. Sorry to invade your post Will. But perusing the vids that pop up after this song is another one for this song, which I’ve posted before below (typo…). Will apologized for the “weird imagery” in the above video. Others might find this one more…uhm…well, you’ll see.
