You would’ve been forced to call this music indie rock or garage rock or maybe even grunge ten years ago, but nowadays there is no underground, and regardless of sales or airplay, this is pop music. Damn good pop music. “Conscience Killer or “Mama Taught Me Better” are songs Stone Temple Pilots
would’ve been thrilled to come up with around the Tiny Music
era (that’s a compliment, dammit!). If you disregard the lyrics, you could almost see “Sweet Feeling” or “The Toll” being a bonus track on one of the Use Your Illusion
albums (sung by Izzy
, obviously). So why is this not on the radio? Maybe because it’s not the 90s any more.
