vampire deer - 1 - ten pounds

March 16, 2017 3:00 PM

i did another album for rpm this year - 10 pounds of blues in a 5 pound bag - in this song, i go to work, leave work, meet the president and go back to work and yes, it's all blues this time

1 pound now i'm on my way
2 pounds yeah, it's gonna stay
3 pounds that's alright
4 pounds that's still a bit light
5 pounds, yeah, that's just right
6 pounds, it's a little too tight
7 pounds, it's a bad bad fight
8 pounds, it's taking all my might
9 pounds, what an awful sight
i got 10 pounds of bullshit in a 5 pound bag
i got 10 pounds of bullshit in a 5 pound bag
what i can't carry i wear and it's a drag

The juxtaposition between cruncho badass guitar and wacky synth and electrodrums, and your talking-corporate bullshit blues. It's just genius. This is like something I'd find in a pile marked "FREE TAKE ONE" on the corner of a busy intersection in the middle of the city. And you stay rooted within the blues genre. amazing.
