Jim O'Rourke - All Downhill from Here

this is my favorite jim o'rourke song. the man fools with everything from harsh severe noise attacks to graceful acoustic improvisation and is still capable of producing this super riff pop gem. insignificance, the album which jumps off with this track, is not even jim at his most straight-forward pop. the 99 album eureka would claim that title, tilting its head towards 60's sunshine pop with songs like something big. all downhill from here and other songs from insignificance have a rougher edge and darker textures. big ups for chi-town.

Claude Debussy - Claire de Lune
