Diamond Rings “All Yr Songs”
You probably don’t want all the gory details, but I’ve been sick all week, hence, no posts. So, sadly, this week’s Pick of the Week isn’t exactly going to be as comprehensive as usual (note: usually they’re not comprehensive, so you’re not really missing much).
The first time I saw this video via Colin Medley (dir.)’s blog I said to Liz “it looks like the guy from the D’Urbervilles got into his Mom’s closet” (jokingly)… kind of like the scene on Friends where Ross dresses up in girl clothes and hosts a tea party… turns out, it is, in fact, John O’Regan of the D’Urbervilles and his alter-ego Diamond Rings.
I wasn’t exactly sure what to make of the song at first — I mean, the make-up and the whole aesthetic of the video threw me for a curve — but I’ve definitely warmed to it, the Seattle SuperSonic (R.I.P.)’s jerseys, the eye make-up, and the whole bit. Most of all, the last couple of days while I’ve been under the weather (and feeling like Armegedon is imminent — the airshow is in town) its been a nice pick-me-up. Basically, its a really fun song, so it’ll be interesting to see what, if anything, comes out of the song (an album? EP?). In any event, it’ll be a good tune to send you on your holiday weekending, presuming, of course, you don’t have to work; but even if you do it might make you feel better about working…
