Album Review: Thurston Moore - By The Fire

 Hey all, got a new review up @glidemag which you can read Right C'here!!

It is of Thurston Moore newest release By The Fire.

RtBE loves Thurston Moore's style sound and substance. Sonic Youth started as a major influence on us at a young age and has continued up until we started our first band and until today. It is with great authority that we can state his recent work holds up with the best of his career. While this album may be a bit long/experimental for some, we love it. 

Buy the album, read the review, peep some video below:

Dylan Cover #447 Charlie Messing "What Was It You Wanted?" Live

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a live cover by Charlie Messing playing "What Was It You Wanted?"


Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this tune:
Oh Mercy brought Dylan back in from the creative wasteland that was his 1980's. It had an eerie sense of foreboding, helped by producer Daniel Lanois and the ghosts of New Orleans. The irritable old man in Dylan came out a bit here as well, and "What Was It You Wanted" is a good example of that, a confused searching feeling colors the lyrics as the protagonist just can't seem to get it right.

Cover:

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
This is the first time we have heard a song played by Charlie Messing who uploads songs and videos to his youtube channel.  

Thoughts on Cover:
While cutting out a few verses Messing does a fine straight ahead version of this bluesy Dylan tune.
