Psycho Killer
by Talking Heads
(9 plays) | (0 fans)

This was the first Talking Heads song. It was written in 1973 at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), where David Byrne and drummer Chris Frantz had a band called The Artistics. When Byrne presented the song, he explained that he wanted a Japanese section in the bridge, but when he asked a girl who spoke the language to come up with some murderous words, she understandably freaked out. Frantz' girlfriend, Tina Weymouth, spoke French, so they had her write a French part for the bridge instead. She drew inspiration from the Norman Bates character in the 1960 Alfred Hitchcock thriller "Psycho." https://faroutmagazine.co.uk/talking-heads-song-psycho-killer-story/

Cowboy Bepop
by Enumclaw
(37 plays) | (0 fans)

Enumclaw is playing in Eugene on November 16th and Portland on November 17th. Speaking about the song, lead singer Aramis Johnson shares, "Something I've been trying to figure out these past two years is the idea of change and what that can look like and mean. At its core, change is what this song is about. If you could choose, what would you change? "There's this line in the movie Mid 90’s' and it's like 'at the end of the day you wouldn’t trade your shit for anyone else.' That's what this song is about. At the end of the day the grass is never greener on the other side." https://bit.ly/3AhJEuQ https://enumclaw6.bandcamp.com/

Book of Our Names

"Religion is central to Furman’s vision of a trans utopia, leading her to cram both a plea to a deity and the minutiae of daily life into any given line as she chronicles her experiences down to the exact minute they happened." https://bit.ly/3qrxKZL -- Ezra Furman chatted with Cheryl and performed four songs Live on KEXP in 2019: https://bit.ly/3B6C4Th

Under the Sun
(44 plays) | (0 fans)

"Led by the charismatic and ambitious Zachary Cole Smith, DIIV's gauzy lo-fi glide led them to becoming one of the most promising upstarts of the early 2010s. Before starting what was then known as "Dive" as his solo project in 2011, Smith was a touring guitarist with Beach Fossils and Darwin Deez, but once he'd settled into a group of like-minded musicians – guitarist Andrew Bailey, bassist Devin Ruben Perez, and drummer Colby Hewitt – Cole's dreamlike guitar-driven reflections began to become a constant presence in Brooklyn venues."

Expert In A Dying Field
by The Beths
(27 plays) | (0 fans)

Expert In A Dying Field will be out on September 16th! “I really do believe that love is learned over time,” explains Elizabeth Stokes in a statement. “In the course of knowing a person, you accumulate so much information: their favorite movies, how they take their tea, how to make them laugh, how that makes you feel. And when relationships between people change, or end, all that knowledge doesn’t just disappear. The phrase ‘Expert in a Dying Field’ had been floating around my head for a few years, I was glad to finally capture it when writing this tune.” https://thebethsnz.bandcamp.com/album/expert-in-a-dying-field
