Mere hours away from this killer Wired deadline that’s been vexing me since last week, so please endure one last day of meh-ish posting. There’s only so much mental bandwidth to spare, alas, and most of what I’ve got is currently dedicated to figuring out a way to end this piece. (I’m playing with several variation of that oh-so-classic kicker: “Only time will tell.”) I thus give you a true sonic rarity: Africa’s cover of “Louie Louie,” which I believe actually surpasses the original. It’s off of this little-known album, which also includes excellent takes on “Light My Fire” and “Paint It Black.”
Back soon with real content. In the meantime, enjoy the music and maybe, just maybe, take a sneak peek at one of the long-rumored “major projects” that I sometimes mention in this space. Really excited about that one—should go live in early 2011. Rest assured, I’ll be keeping y’all posted—as well as be offering bonus material in advance of the debut.
