Yeah, I can understand that. Five albums is an insanely good deal off of one song.

I just was surprised when I heard it for the first time. Just seemed like generic pop. But the thing is, what's generic to me is what's popular to everyone else, so I realize that's probably what sells records, thus 5 album deal.

I do, fwiw, enjoy the song now. Found it boring at first, but I find the lyrics to be goofy enough in the right direction to make the rest of the song worthwhile. And at least it's a ukelele this time, instead of a banjo.

(I really hope that one day somebody can link me back to this and say "god you were so wrong" after his third album is an abrupt turn into experimental hip hop or atmospheric black metal or free jazz or something but I'm not holding my breath.)

He might team up with Rick Rubin like Angus & Julia Stone did. World, look out... or not.

A message I was just sent on Tinder:

"Um well today I've been listening to jack johnson and ben harper. Generally I'm a folky fan, especially australian stuff. But I also like black keys and alt-j, and kinda indie feel good stuff. I'm a mixed bag.

What about yourself?"

I love how young folks nowadays want 'feel good kinda stuff'. Sorry, kinda indie feel good stuff. I want feel bad stuff.



What the hell is Tinder?

Haha maybe I'll respond that I'm into real feel bad stuff, list all of Radiohead's most depressing songs.

I'm listening to Accidentally Kelly Street while pumping weights in my apartment and weeping gently.

Ben Harper is an issue - but they don't seem to be pigeonholing themselves into any particular sound. Not worthy of a blockage. Maybe they just aren't a music fan and it should never be a prerequisite to go on a date with someone,

Ben Harper is fine. Saw him open for Pearl Jam and he/they rocked. And I am totally not going to block her, I was just being an idiot.

Ben Harper is great. An excellent live performer. Fight for Your Mind is a really, really good record.

Dancing like a dickhead's quite a strain.
