With the introduction of Greg’s second regular feature, ” 70 Aspects of Batman,” it suddenly occurred to me that I was rapidly becoming the least productive member of Beati Paoli on this blog. Lord knows that’s one title I do not want, so I have quickly produced this new column from out of nowhere. I call it “Stuck on Repeat.” It’s a fairly simple concept. I post a song that has recently been getting repeated play on my ipod/itunes/whatever and then I briefly write about it. Easy peasy.
“Loss of God” by Wolves in the Attic, taken from Electronic Hearts (2009 – Mission Freak)
[Full disclosure: I’ve been practicing a bit with these guys as I will be a fill-in bassist for a few weeks this summer.] “Loss of God,” encompasses everything that I dig about the band and I suppose solid rock music . Plenty of fuzz, riffs/lead lines shooting off in every direciton, and group HEY!’s. Oh yeah and check out the ol’ stop-short (one of my favorite moves in song writing) at the 2:10 mark which nicely sets the stage for everything to come back in and eventually leads to the previously mentioned fuzz, riffs, and HEY!’s.
