Yesterday I learned - or was reminded, perhaps - that both the Blue Album and Diary were released on the same day, twenty years ago. What a special day. I spent it walking around with my friend and eating my favorite “Czech” food and taking awful selfies and dancing to 80s and 90s music and throughout it all I thought about how lucky I am to have these things in my life, all of the above, and especially the music of Rivers Cuomo and Jeremy Enigk, and it’s those little things which when added together become a beautiful whole, and I get frustrated because I spend so much time thinking everything is against me when if I just looked around I would realize that there are all of these things to be happy about, to “live for,” even. And it’s comforting.
Tune into Riot Grrrlfunkel III to hear all of the following, and many more: Weezer, Haim, the Pixies, Fleet Foxes, the Debauchees, Bleached, and JoJo. Plus: I talk about my trip to the New York Film Festival and cry because feelings. Send me requests on the chat page or here on Tumblr! Let’s do this, babies.
So a lot of people think Surfer Blood’s latest is derivative or lacking in growth…but as a longtime Weezer fan, I can’t help but love the overt influence of the Blue Album (even Green, maybe? Maladroit?) on it. I’m really digging this song in particular.
