I was just browsing the web as per normal: bookmarking, quick linking, new-tabing and multi-observationaling, when I came across a particular MySpace page.
Some form of new-fangled experiband with a distinct anti-everything stance. Undeterred by this overbearing hipster facade, I proceeded to sample the music.
3 seconds in I knew something was amiss. I knew there was genius in the music. Something about the composition or the riff or something of the like.
A quick google later, I realized I had incredible powers of observation. The man-God, John Frusciante, does indeed contribute tunes (reminiscent of The Soldier from AW2) to this questionable music endeavor. I thusly decided I LOVE Swahili Blonde. Maybe you should too.
“Take Hemingway. People always think that the reason he’s easy to read is that he is concise. He isn’t. I hate conciseness — it’s too difficult. The reason Hemingway is easy to read is that he repeats himself all the time, using ‘and’ for padding.”—Tom Wolfe
