Been on my mind all day
Watched Oasis: Supersonic the other day. There's a small bit where Liam Gallagher describes how he used to devote days just buying records and "blasting it out, getting soaked in it". I remember doing the exact same thing in my teens, especially with the song that's playing in that scene:
I just learned of a new musician that's pretty decent: Tash Sultana. She plays multiple instruments. I believe she's primarily a solo act. I can't speak to her ability on the guitar, but it's better than a lot of the new shit I hear these days. There are a few tracks I like of hers, but I keep coming back to this one:

Oh, don't worry, their other songs are even more derivative. However, their ripoff sound was an oasis in the desert for a lot of drunk oldheads in northern Tennessee.
I love most of A Perfect Circle. I was jazzed to see this new track drop. At first, I was lukewarm, but after several listens I really like it. I'm sure it will sound even better for me in context of the full album:
