Galaxie 500 - Listen, the Snow is Falling

I'm really loving all this snow. Though getting back on schedule after a day off always sucks a bit more than normal, it's definitely worth the exchange. A few more inches were supposed to accumulate over the night, but apart from a few flurries that didn't happen. There's still over a foot worth of the wonderous white stuff outside.

Today's entry is another winter celebratory one. Though I already did a Galaxie 500 entry a few days ago, Naomi, Galaxie's bassist does the vocals on this one. This is one of only 2 songs where she provided the lead vocals. It's a John Lennon/ Yoko Ono cover. The original song is kinda obscure although it was the b-side to the Happy Xmas (War is Over) single. As expected they turn that initially "okay" song into a complete behemoth of song- almost reaching an epic 8 minutes in length. Though technically the cover lasts for 2:45, since after there's a guitar explosion. It's incredible, of course.

Galaxie 500 - Listen, the Snow is Falling

The song comes from Galaxie 500's third and final release This is Our Music which also contains a superb cover of the Velvet Underground's Here She Comes Now.

Oh and February 15th- Happy Birthday to Conor Oberst. Though I'd presume he's less than happy with this current weather, preferring to rather get past this dead and eternal snow... :)
