Someone Really “Sampled The Dog”
One of the things I find very curious about music is how stratified it is. If you are 20 something you listen to one kind of music. If you are older, you listen to something else. Bands I’m super-excited about seeing mean nothing to some people I went to college with.
This makes no sense to me.
Yet the fact that I’ve been listening to music critically for a very long time means that sometimes I see connections no one else does.
Recently the blogosphere was agog with this new song from indie darlings James Blake & Bon Iver. This song incorporates barking. I don’t know if this barking is from a dog or a wolf, but it’s natural enough to confuse my dog.
My mind lept immediatly to Austin band Tinbuk 3‘s vintage tune “Sample The Dog.” This song came out a year before wee wunderkind Blake was born.
There’s the off chance that you might know Tinbuk 3 from their song
“The Future’s So Bright, I’ve Gotta Wear Shades.“
