Exactly eight days ago, I featured a random song from Pernice Brothers’ 2001 album The World Won’t End. And here we are again with a second track from the same batch of 11 songs, an unlikely result given the 13,117 other possible tracks that aren’t on that album.
I know that because I posted about it during a week recounting my purchases at Amoeba on that trip.
Though this album comes highly recommended, and I’ve liked everything I’ve heard on it, I think this is the first time I’ve heard one of its songs since that post eight years ago.
I returned to Amoeba Music with my family on our last day in L.A. and we spent close to an hour browsing. This was a remarkable act of good will on the part of my wife, who hates record stores in the same way I hate clothes outlets — the endless bins of CDs analogous to endless racks of pants and blouses.
But she recognized the innate coolness of Amoeba Music, and its importance to the pop culture landscape. Plus she picked up a couple of used DVDs that she plans to use in her classroom.
