BODIES OF WATER vs Wilco, Buckley, Slint & Steely Dan

DOWNLOAD: Sloan Wainwright – Silent Night (MP3)

Bodies of Water

This was maybe going to be a post about how the-band-recently-signed-to-Secretly-Canadian Bodies of Water posted some free Christmas songs for download on their MySpace page, but then this message they posted on the homepage of their regular website seemed even more interesting…

12.21.07 – I can’t understand why anyone likes these musical groups and singers:

Wilco
Jeff Buckley
Elvis Costello
The Police
Slint
Rush
Joni Mitchell
Steely Dan
Afghan Whigs

Perhaps you are offended by this. If so, I feel glad. You need to be shaken up. You need to have whatever skewed values you’ve cultivated over the years CHALLENGED. Listen again to this stuff – you will see that it is junk. (I say all this with the utmost sincerity, but I’m sure that in a year or two ‘synchronicity’ will be on heavy rotation in my house. This goes for all of these except for Steely Dan. I will never, ever like Steely Dan as long as I live.)

And to that Steely Dan might say…

Check out the Bodies of Water take away show @ La Blogoteque (and while you’re at it, check out the new Jens Lekman one too).
