I have been listening to Khruangbin a hell of a lot lately and I am deeply in love with Mark Speer's oceans-of-reverb tone and Laura Lee's glitter-lipstick groove. And they're Texicans, so I'm seriously wondering if they might be Friends of Post.

I want to make a joke about the drummer and bangs, but I can't get it together.

Anyway, it's calming music for troubling times.  :thumbsup:

The chain of related media stuff led me to the music video for a song called "Run-Away" by Super Furry Animals, a band I don't think I'd heard of.

The song is very catchy and is apparently from 2007.  I'm slowly listening to some of their other stuff.  It sounds like it takes some listening to.  It might be the kind of thing you really love after you've heard it four or five times.

So it's not a coincidence that Matt Berry is in that, right?

I've heard that band name, but I'm not familiar with them. I'm liking The Very Best of Neil Diamond at the moment, especially the name.

Yeah, it was directed by Richard Ayoade.


I was listening to Foreigner's Records in the car, because whatever, and . . . OK, so the version of "Hot Blooded" on Records is a live version from a concert, but I would SWEAR that the version on my CD is, uh, not the version that used to be on there.

I mean, that's not likely, bordering impossible.  But I swear it's a different version, and not even all that close.  It's [ sigh ] possible that I own two different CDs of Records, bought many years apart, and they could be different.  Wikipedia doesn't seem to believe that there's more than one version of Records out there . . . but they do say that if you buy it on iTunes, you get a studio version of "Hot Blooded".

This is incredibly unimportant, but very Unintended Alternate Universe annoying.  :nonplused:

I occasionally here stuff that I'd swear has been remastered or remixed. I think it happens more often than you might think.

Oh, man I ran across a remastered Machine Head recently on YouTube and it sounded just as I remembered ... until the guitar solos, which were all different. Like, completely! Obviously still Blackmore, but it's like whoever did the remastering was like "ah, this take's better, I'll use that one." Everything else was the same. Disconcerting as heck!

Victims Family did that to me when they remastered and re-released White Bread Blues.  After turbillions of listens of both, the remastered one is actually better, but it took awhile.
