The Daily Choice: Loop – 16 Dreams
Honestly, Monday morning Daily Choices are always some of my toughest to choose. Not just because I’m usually groggy from a long weekend and roiling with self-doubt over the prospect of another week of work, but because Monday presents the biggest conundrum in terms of what mood to set. Do you start the week with a blast of more feel good garage and hope that the feeling eases you in to a solid week? Or do you turn on the slash and burn rock and roll just to announce to the world how you feel? Or more so do you just drop the week’s weakest link, a song that you like but don’t love, and know will go easily in to the morning of a few other cobweb-brained readers?
There’s no solid answer, but the question, each and every week I actually muster the energy to post something on Monday, hangs in the air. The reissues of heretofore unknown band Loop caught my eyes this morning, the sort of perfect meld of scorched Earth guitar, single-beat drum kicks, and an almost poppy voice, all tied together in to one big steel-toed boot kick to the next five days of cubicle livin’.
Loop’s whole catalog is being reissued on Heaven’s End.
