Without a doubt, Smooth by Santana feat. Rob Thomas of Matchbox 20 is easily one of my simplest guilty pleasures in this cruel, unforgiving world. Yes, the song may evoke awkward middle school dances, and your Uncle’s never-changing ringtone, but for myself, the song is the epitome of 90s culture all condensed into one smooth mixture.
Ever since Mark Z Danielewski’s hallmark tour de force ‘House of Leaves’ dropped into my life back in high school, it has stood the test of time for my development towards experimental fiction in the books I read. While the genre is limited, there is a sense of ‘high’ gained from losing your mind in the narratives. While House of Leaves is encroaching on it’s 20th birthday next year, a couple architecture students have put together an ‘blueprint’ of the labyrinth, which is the old Victorian home feature in the novel.
Stumbled upon this trio out of Portugal when diving through articles on Bandcamp. Like I’ll never stop repeating, there is way too much music out there, and just not enough time to find it all… But once I sampled this group, was hooked almost instantly. The instrumentals of Black Bombaim are an instant throwback to The Mars Volta, especially Omar’s guitar work, and definitely scratch that deep untended itch.
