We dig music.

July 2, 2007

My co-author nerdbound set me on the task of writing the first post while he went off to watch One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. That bastard. The first post is, of course, one of the most difficult literary forms to satisfy. Its purpose is to explain what the hell we’re doing here while not boring the shit out of the reader. To do this, it must both inform and entertain, inspire yet titillate. And God knows titillating is hard enough on its own without an extra requirement for simultaneous profundity.

So instead of starting with something of my own, I instead turn to a paraphase of “I dig music,” the inspirational semi-last words of Russell Hammond of Stillwater. I could also turn to his subsequent choice of last words – “I’m on drugs!” – but we’re family-friendly folks here at Elastic Resonance, embodying the good values of old-time Americana. Or not, considering that neither Mike nor I really likes country. (Carrie Underwood’s pretty cute though.)

Here’s what we do like – indie rock, pop, punk, metal, folk, hip hop, classic rock, electronica, dance, trance, pants (no, really, pants are very useful things), and every point along the WTF spectrum, from the poppy insanity of Architecture in Helsinki to the dense atmospherics of Liars. We’ll cover everything from album reviews to mp3 samples to concert news to rants on random music-related topics. And sometimes we’ll even talk about cheese. God, I love cheese.

So stick around while we get on our feet and get the site running. Things look bare now, but I promise good shit is coming soon. We hope you dig it as much as we dig our music.
