Woolfy+Sunny Day+Bill Withers+Paneye
Recently DFA’s new regular Woolfy released an LP and honestly I wasn’t feeling much of it compared to his singles but this track towards the end of the album caught my ear about 1:30 mins in and on, a definite keeper for the travelling record crate.
Here is great news thats worthy of your virtual scrapbook if you adore post rock: Sunny Day Real Estate is coming back together to tour this fall says Billboard. I’ve always had respect for the band but never really dove into their catalog like some of the diehards out there but this Pillars track is pretty gnarly.
With Michael Jackson passing away today this song title by Bill Withers might not be the best but it puts me in a better mood right away. My mom told me when I was growing up my 2 idols were Mike Tyson and Michael Jackson, that kind of sounds awful now because of legal troubles they both have had but back then it was fitting for a young kid that loved NES and dancing. Mike Tyson wasn’t too bad in The Hangover I thought, anyone see it? well anyways while everyone is blasting MJ i’m gonna take a backseat until I have a proper post.
I do get a lot demos recently to my iso50 email account and I usually don’t get to post a track but for the first time something really grabbed me by a band named Paneye, I hope to maybe get this song out on Moodgadget and produced a bit better but I do love the rawness of the recording and the guys voice.

Sunny Day Real Estate
HELL YES! Now that’s a band worthy of a come back.
The live “Pillars” track from their cd “LIVE” is even better than the album version.
But “Days Were Golden” has got to be my favorite.

The three Mikes: Jordan, Tyson & Jackson. I was obsessed with all three of them as a little kid.

SDRE’s How It Feels… is probably the album that has aged the best. Not to disrespect Diary or even the very underrated Rising Tide, but HIFTBSO is their best output in my opinion. ‘hope to catch the ATL show.

Bill Withers haha I haven’t heard that track in a while…I can’t remember what it was, but another track definitely uses lots of samples from the song you posted.
And that Paneye is surprisingly decent…at first I was like wtf is this, then when the song kicked in I was like oohhhhhhh ok

That Bill Wither’s track … I always used to listen to it when I was little! Used to try sing along with the really long notes. I love that song!
