Each week, I will share three songs (or jams) I have been listening to recently that I think YOU should listen to. To check out all the previous weeks, visit thisisstormsound.com.
First up this week is Thatch by Goose from April 28, 2023. One of the best tracks in the band’s catalog gets taken out for a long and incredibly funky excursion. Rick and Peter’s interplay overtop of the deep rhythmic foundation is absolutely phenomenal.
Next we have Set Your Soul Free from Phish on April 19, 2023. Ranking high in my list of jams of the year so far, the third absolutely massive and unique version of this song played in the Bay Area gets into a CRAZY space that feels like your impending doom towards the end.
Finally, we have Brown-Eyed Women from 5/8/77. The legendary Grateful Dead show’s anniversary is next week, so it’s time to commemorate it with one of the cleanest and most perfectly-played guitar solos of all time.
