Post #135: Dax Riggs - "Ouroboros"



Post #135:  Yesterday was such a beautiful day!!  It finally feels like Spring is upon us to stay...I hope.

With weather like this, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to go on a bike ride.

I love biking!  It gives me an opportunity to blow off some steam and clear my mind, all the while getting exercise.

It also gives me an opportunity to listen to music with no distractions.  For some reason it sometimes feels like I'm listening to the songs for the first time again.

Last night Dax came on with this song, which I absolutely love.

I had come across his previous band, Deadboy and the Elephantmen, on a SXSW (South by Southwest Festival) music sampler.

This song is off of his first solo album from 2007, We Sing of Only Blood or Love.  I have this vinyl framed in my basement with the record being a transparent blood red.

Aside from how cool the vinyl looks, I highly recommend this entire album.

He released his second solo album, Say Goodnight to the World, last year.

This is sludge rock at its best.
