While at the record store picking up a fidget spinner for Maribou, I asked the pierced, tattooed, gauged record store employee if he could recommend some nice trip-hoppy fuzzy hazy shoe-gazey music for me. He immediately started walking and grabbed a copy of Nothing’s “Tired of Tomorrow” off the shelf and handed it to me.
From the first few seconds, I was HOOKED.
Seems silly to describe it, though, when I can just ask you to listen to the opening song on the album: Fever Queen. (What makes this song so very perfect and frustrating is that it clocks in at around two minutes-fifty. Which means that it always leaves me wanting more, like, I wish that it were a four minute song.) I absolutely adore how the beginning progresses to crest around 1:00 in the song. Absolutely lovely.
The second song on the album is really the one that reminded me of The Stone Roses: The Dead Are Dumb.
Those are probably the two best songs on the album but it’s not like there is a huge fall-off from those two. The entire album is good and perfect to play in the background while cooking or driving or writing a post like this one. I wholeheartedly recommend this album to anyone who misses the music from the 90’s. (I figure that this is how Led Zeppelin fans felt when Wolfmother put out their debut album.)
So… what are you listening to?
