The Sunday Scoop: What was that song?

Thanks for riding the Fiver! Check below for the details of the songs.

REM – “Endgame”

One of the filler tunes off Out of Time, it’s like the song with no words, the one that you keep listening to, waiting for the words to start. A sweet interlude with Michael Stipe’s la-la-las and that signature REM sound. Out of Time is by far my favorite go-to REM CD, it’s got great songs and just a great flow. I have this on hardcopy CD and it resides on every digital device that I won that can contain music because it’s one that I like to keep in my pocket.

Lisa Marie Presley – “You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet”

Affected vocals? Yes. But perfect song by the King’s daughter if you ask me. Bought this one after a strange series of events … went to see an Elvis impersonator at a lovely small theater in Texas very near to the anniversary of his death. Then I saw an interview with Priscilla & Lisa Marie and there was discussion of this CD and how it speaks to where Lisa Marie is in her life. Intrigued, I sampled and bought it. She’s got a lot of story.

Gobotron – “I Lied”

I don’t know much of anything about this band. I tend to download a lot of free/cheap music through Amazon and NoiseTrade, and this was found there. Doing a little research, Gobotron is a side project of Robert McDowell (a member of Manchester Orchestra). They had me at that opening guitar note. I’m easy like that. Also going to check out Manchester Orchestra, though some of the songs are more hipsterish than I care for, some of the songs are up my alley.

The Black Jack Gypsys – “The Devil and His Hounds”

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

From their debut EP, this trio is local to Oklahoma City. I know them by association through their parents (yeah, that doesn’t make me feel old!) and the vocals are a bit thready, but the bass. Oh-em-effing-gee that bass. It’s amazing. The instrumentation is just truly inspired. I’ve referred to this song (and the others on the EP) as a baptism by fire through the gritty music, and I stand by that reference.

Kurt Vile – “Life’s a Beach”

So I’m picking songs for the Fiver & my daughter walks in and says “play that one!” so I did and here it is. Because the Fiver is very scientific like that. This song sounds like a beach, like a big old California beach where there are people wearing those woven ponchos and playing frisbee. Not my favorite of the bunch. This was downloaded with a score of other free tunes from Amazon, this is from the Matador Intended Play sampler.

    I don’t know where The Black Jack Gypsies recorded or what kind of funding they have, but the sound is exceptionally good compared to what you get with self-recorded/produced/etc bands. I want to hear more by them!

    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress
    or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused .. Any suggestions? Cheers!
