November 2012 - Monthly Mix (BEEFTUNES) by Jake Vest
Crazy small european buddha man grabs sick grooves with the hot rock band of the moment. no longer a Yardbird, Jeff Beck and his group carve a hard, serious edge into Donovan’s strange, incomprehensible freaky folk ramblings, and then there’s Selda. the niche pop songstress floats comfortably above a deep bed of Polish psych fuzz. the list goes on and on and there are blogs and blogs and bootleg internet magazines for all that. as i drift further from the source, it all makes sense. the songs are, as far as i can tell, pretty chill except for a few “serious jams” that encourage you to “think about things” and “what is relevant to your life.” These songs make me feel good and that’s about all I can say about them. [Josh, this is where you write the smart, engaging summary that makes the reader feel something special] Special, right? Ok. You have one whole month to enjoy these jams as much as I do. After that all the songs get deleted from Spotify and scratched off every cd and record. Hey. Figure it out.
