DeadSplinter Up! All Night: I’m Just Doin’ All the Work

“Well I have got this work/But I’d rather powder my nose instead.”

I’m quite fond of San Francisco-based Foxygen, a mostly-duo with session musicians as required. Their most recent album, Seeing Other People, from 2019, is perhaps their best. Their lyrics have a subtle, cynical, sarcastic undertone, which I find delightful.

And here is Blue Mountain, from 2013’s We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic, a bit more mystical/searching lyrically. Age-appropriate, they were in their early 20’s when they recorded it. This is a link to a “short” live version, and oh my, they are just full of themselves.

So, dear DeadSplintertarians and denizens of DUAN, what have you got on this Sunday evening? And thank you for your support of DUAN!

    Suzanne Vega, Song of the Stoic:
