Morning Coffee

A little TV On The Radio. Having listened to my share of indie rock now, I finally can feel (if not understand) why these guys, at their best, sound so different. As I said before when I first started on this post-hip-hop journey all I heard were the loud guitars of white people. But it's interesting how as you absorb more, you can see the gradations and differences. I think I was basically like one of those guys who listens to rap and only hears people yelling angrily.


Anyway, Crying is probably one of my favorite joints. I have dreams of hearing this at a party. Whenever I can get out to a party.
