Endless Loop: Little Fluffy Clouds

theorbHave you ever had one of those songs that gets stuck in your head for days…weeks…years? Sure you have. These are the songs that always make the cut. The songs on repeat. We all have them. I have a ton. Welcome back to Endless Loop.

“Little Fluffy Clouds” by The Orb

“What were the skies like when you were young?”

Some weeks it’s harder to write than others.  Some weeks I struggle for things to say.  Some weeks it feels like grasping at proverbial straws to find anything even remotely poignant to write about all of these songs that I love so much, or at the very least to come up with some personal anecdote to convey my evergreen adulation thereof.

“Life in Mono” by Mono

Time and time again, I seem to find myself trading in nostalgia on this website, caught up and forever wading in all of my personal memories, stories, and emotional detritus like so many pop culture writers before me.  And that’s okay I guess.  Write what you know, or whatever.

The Joup Friday Album: No Age-Snares Like A Haircut

No age snaresTen years ago a multi-colored, noisy yet still somehow pop-inclined punk band made a significant splash in the underground music scene. I’m talking about the record Nouns by the L.A. based duo No Age. This wasn’t my first exposure to the band; that came in the form of the almost equally brilliant follow-up, 2010’s ‘Everything In Between,’ a more polished take on the band’s sound. After falling in love with ‘In Between,’ I embarked on the journey every music nerd takes once they discover a band that’s new to them: I checked out No Age’s old shit.

Every now and then, I find myself caught up in music fan ephemera and hypotheticals.  Top Fives, desert-island-discs, ultimate supergroups, that sort of thing.  It’s okay, it happens to the best of us.  Lately, I’ve been dwelling on the notion of desert-island-discographies, wherein you get to take the complete works of five different artists with you to your imaginary desert island.  And you get everything too: every album, every single, every B-side, rarity, live recording, collaboration, demo, bootleg, and so on.  The whole enchilada or whatever.  Who would you choose?  Who would I choose for that matter?

Last week got a little heavy, and rightfully so, but this week we’ll ease it back a little bit with my favorite song from my favorite animated death metal band.  Imaginary metal…hooray!
