"Unspirited" is stuck in my head. The high guitar line in the second verse is totally something I would do. The liner notes indicate that Isolation Drills was recorded at Loho Studios, which is where I've spent a few thousand dollars over the last 6 years or so; nothing we did there ever sounded as hi-fi as this record does. The record itself is pretty good - a lot more consistent than Do the Collapse, but still not the sort of breakthrough rock that I'm craving. It's funny - GBV is definitely an alcohol band, and most definitely not a stoner band, and you can just tell from the songwriting and, well, the intent. They're not a band that's interested in transporting you anywhere; and there's nothing inherently wrong with that, it's just not what I need to hear right now.
It's quite a beautiful day outside - easily the nicest day of 2001 so far, even if it was a little chilly when I had a ciggie at 10:30.
