Listening to Kyuss

Listening to Kyuss. I get that “all rock songs are one intricate continuum” feeling, listening to some bands. It’s not that the bands are derivative (Kyuss has a very original sound though they’re clearly a psychedelic-influenced stoner band), it’s that they seem to communicate with one another in the echo vchamber that is civilization.

Rock songs fit well, if chosen well, as background music for movies, and it almost doesn’t matter what’s happening in the film, because rock is the music of human life, life both sweet and sour.

Play the right song in the right setting and it seems like the setting itself is singing to you.
