Finally got the hang of the uploading thing. Today I'm posting a track by US Maple from their new album Purple On Time. US Maple are one of my favorite bands, and they somehow manage to make memorable music despite dispensing with most of the attributes of a standard rock song. Their drummer rarely plays a steady beat, the singer rasps somewhat like Miles Davis, the guitars play strange made up chords that don't mesh, but somehow it all comes together. Purple On Time is a little bit more accessible than their previous albums, so it's probably a good place to start. This song appears only on the vinyl version. It's called favors are weird. Now that I'm using iTunes for Windows, a lot of my files will be in AAC format. This is one of them.
