So we’re all locked inside so let’s shoot the shit about music. I’m gonna be on Facebook a lot in the next few days for this. Here’s what I want to do:
I made a Spotify playlist for all the influences for Hollywood Park. It’s got “Thunder Road” by Springsteen and “Another Brick in the Wall” by Pink Floyd, plus a bunch of other songs that have moved me/us through the years and were in the world of this record we just finished.
So I thought I’d ask: What do YOU think the influences are for “Come on Out?” I have strong opinions but I’m very curious what you think they are. How does it make you feel? What other songs/artists make you feel that way? Is this post-punk? Classic rock? Modern indie rock? Did I bite Lou Reed? Does everyone bite Lou Reed? What’s up with that guitar tone?
I normally wouldn’t do this sort of thing because it’s more fun to be a detached artist or whatever but we’re all home and the fucking world is sick so let’s just talk about music.
