Happy Friday, and welcome to the recently resurrected Fiver, wherein we post five tracks – totally blind – for your aural digestion, and impatiently await your unfettered reactions to them in the comments below. Per the norm, we shall return again on Sunday with the Scoop – the “big reveal” that illuminates all.
I’ve chosen this week’s selections (this is Ri, by the way) with the mindset of mixing brand spankin’ new releases with well worn friends…and one that marries the two. See if you can figure out which is which.
I’m feeling rather introspective today. Under pressure. I’m in need of a two hour professional massage and a nap in the hammock. This house could benefit from the ministrations of a crackerjack domestic engineer (one who is NOT me), the gift of four hours of uninterrupted quiet might just make me weep with joy, and I’d really like some sharp cheddar cheese. None of that has any bearing whatsoever on the music you’re about to cue up, but I add it merely as an informational aside.
Fiver time. Let ‘er rip!
