a wonderful tribute to Gabriel Garcia Marquez by NPR.
the guy didn’t even tell them about having to have AA batteries…
also, i’m stoked about the few kids that get it. “well, an iPad costs you $700…”
sure, it’s also a computer, but you know, new tech costs money!
On the song, frontman Cedric Bixler-Zavala’s high pitched yelp and guitarist Omar Rodríguez-López’s frenetic, reverb-heavy guitar theatrics work in tandem to showcase their undeniable chemistry that’s carried them throughout their At The Drive-In and Mars Volta days. A brooding and chugging bassline from Flea gives the track some proto-punk flair, as Bixler-Zavala sings about atheists in foxholes and “falling out of the sky.”
vocals can make it or break it for me on tunes. Bixler-Zlava’s has always been a bit too brash for me, but the tune is solid. this is a welcome combination. i have a feeling Omar Rodriguez-López will be looking for another new combination NEXT year.
