The Stones wanted to be loved. Feared too, but loved. Or at least lusted.
Zep wanted to be worshipped in the Hammer of the Gods way.
Stooges wanted to scare the shit out of you.
The Velvets didn’t even see you.
Listening to the Velvets the morning, and naturally thought of this. Possibly the most true thing ever said
Beck - Sunday Morning (Velvet Underground)
While I’ve still got a conference call and a couple of emails to send, I’m calling it now: vacation started. Feels like a long, lazy Sunday morning is stretching out in front of me.
Happy cover Friday, kids.

Japandroids - Crazy/Forever
A couple of big things and many small ones meant broken sleep that ran late into the morning. Turning everything in my head off for six minutes of loud, fuzzy, looping riffs, and then starting up the day.

Temples - Shelter Song
The plan was for something familiar and loud to start the day — Song #1 was a contender — but then, with one thing and another, I ended up here. But I like it here, so I’m not complaining.

When the kids are away I’m less sure what pictures to take.
Hessismore - Bearsong
Hypnotic in a lighter, loopier way that is my wont to dig. But dig I do.

Art Blakey - No Time for Speed
Here, my friends, is the B side of a 1959 7” that Art Blakey apparently recorded in support of a drivers’ education film entitled “Stop Driving Us Crazy.”
Blakey recruited Lee Morgan, Jerome Richardson, Bobby Timmons, and Jymie Merritt for the project.
