I spent quite a bit of time this past weekend going through my massive library of tunes, selecting cuts for the next episode of Michael Stanley Made Me Do It. One band that really caught my attention was Tall Firs, with their haunting psychedelic folk tune “Buddy/ Baby.” It didn’t really fit in with the rockin’ vibe of the podcast I was putting together. The slow, brooding, and tortured soul thing couldn’t hang with big riff rock and roll. However, once things slowed down, it showed itself to be a perfect fit for those cold, quiet moments of introspection.

Tall Firs have a self titled release out now on Thurston Moore’s Ecstatic Peace label. It’s one that I’m definitely going to be checkin’ out in the coming weeks.
