This week we’re sharing some brilliantly simple tunes from some of the most brilliantly simple minds in rock & roll.
Nirvana – Sliver
This single came out in 1990 but Geffen re-released the song to radio to support the release of the rarities compilation album Incesticide in 1992. “Sliver” and “Dive” remain two of my favorite Nirvana songs, mostly because when Nevermind was being completely blown-out by radio saturation, the Incesticide album was released and it brought a whole new dark-er side to this band I had become obsessed with. Nevermind is a GREAT album, but the songs on Insesticide felt a little more personal to the group, I don’t know if it’s the recording or the emotion in the vocals/backup vox but pick that one up if you’ve never heard it.
Robert Pollard – Tonight’s The Rodeo
Guided By Voices is definitely an interesting musical project, Robert Pollard is the group’s founder/frontman/songwriter/album artist etc and since 1986 has over 20 full-length releases with countless singles. These songs are released under his personal moniker and the artwork is, in usual fashion, provided by Pollard himself (And is AWESOME). November 11th was the official “Guided By Voices Day” in our neighborhood and I just found out, so this is a belated nod to a one of a kind trailblazer.
