A HEAD FOR MUSIC
Friday (the cool rocker former gallery chic of 1/OF Gallery) once called me "uber-tacky" for listening and actually enjoying the songs of Sound Garden. I'd play it in the gallery over and over again, and I particularly love the Animal Song. She once said, "Dan, I have this vision of banging my head on the wall every time I hear you play Sound Gareden." I'd reply, "I also like Pearl Jam and the other cool bands. It's just that Sound Garden is... melodious, happy and cute."
What Friday doesn't know, and I am not sure if I ever revealed this, but I absolutely enjoy Radiohead. Their music and videos have this edgy-designer feel to it that when I listen (and literally see their songs in video) I feel like I am warping my brain to another "experience".
I am putting this video "House of Cards" here where they've innovated (again) on the way music is "seen".
Frankly, I feel like I am watching an MRI scan coming to life. Way cool!
