Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

Boxing Day

Besides Bird Song, the obvious hero of the new DaP 11 first set is Box of Rain, which might just be the best version they ever did of this easy-to-fuck-up favorite. Everyone’s mentioned the vocals–and they’re sweet and on key from everyone involved–but the secret hero of the song is Billy.

Listen again: it goes from Phil’s already quick count-off to the speed Billy wants, which is FAST as fuck–80’s tempos–and Phil can’t start crooning; all he can do is sing his beautiful melody and hang on.
