Re: Unreleased songs from The Unraveling sessions

My recollection is that they intended to release two records in 2020, but the Pandemic put the kibosh on that plan. All up in the air now.

I think I was 11 or so, and the film was on a NYC channel (Channel 5 or 11), and I tuned in right at the "nose" scene, and basically leaped under the bed. I'd never seen violence depicted so viscerally.

Re: Webster Hall, 2/21

Interested to hear thoughts about the opener Buffalo Nichols Thought they were very good. They're a duo, guitar/dobro and drums. Simple, hypnotic bluesy songs. He's got a terrific voice, and she's a good and sensitive accompanist. (Would've been easy for the drums to overwhelm). Straight-forward, a...

Just a few which may have balanced it more: Eyes like Glue, Lisa's Birthday, Daddy's Cup, Carl Perkin's Cadillac, Filthy and Fried, Kinky Hypocrite, Cartoon Gold, Hearing Jimmy Loud, and Cartoon Gold. See how easy it is to repeat a song? :lol: If that was intentional, bravo. If not, thank you anyway!

I can't imagine any substitutions, even though there were, over all three nights, songs I wanted to hear but did not get. ("One of These Days" being the one that sp...

I rated every single song, added an "overall" grade (sometimes ...

Re: The Unraveling

My understanding is that the rise in heroin usage over the last 5 or 10 years is largely due to societal issues such as opioid addiction, homelessness, mental illness and the like. In that context "I thought you knew better than that" can sound kinda harsh. Or maybe I'm reading the song wrong. If y...

There's love, grief and understanding in the bridge and last verse of "Heroin Again" and I think they clear up any issues with moralizing.

While we're talking hopes for the official release, I've noticed what sounds like a phone notification on both Babies in Cages (4:56) and Awaiting Resurrection (7:06). It's the exact same sound, and I hope it's just like a watermark or something. YES! I think it's three times: those two and under t...

I don’t think there’s ever been a more menacing DBT song than Awaiting Resurrection. It's a slow burner that IMO would be great as an opener. I can’t wait to see how they work up the guitar playing by the time this one becomes road tested. Reminds me of Sleeps With Angels-era NY&CH (maybe I'm heari...
