Words about music (363): B. B. King

You've heard me call myself a bluesman and a blues singer. I call myself a blues singer, but you ain't never heard me call myself a blues guitar man. Well, that's because there's been so many can do it better'n I can, play the blues better'n me. I think a lot of them have told me things, taught me things.

Dalton: What Never Should End

Fuzzy grunge rock from Brooklyn. Nate Harar is Dalton, a fan of Blur, Nirvana and Dinosaur Jr. His new single What Never Should End is a quiet anthem, with a wall of wailing guitars and quite a bit of cymbal crashing. Both depressing and uplifting, it's a throwback to the Nineties alternative rock. His self-titled album drops on February 23rd on Fierce Panda.
