I like beer. I love music. The two often go hand-in-hand. But expressing the relationship between beer and music can be difficult, at best. How do you expound on the similarities between Bruce Springsteen and Lakefront? Or the Three Floyds and The Transplants? Or Brooklyn Beer and Neil Diamond?
The only way I know how is to just let you listen to what I think a brewery sounds like. Or, perhaps stated in the alternative, here's some music that reminds me of a brewery.
In this case, the music is stylish, poppy, up-beat and easy on the ears. But if you really listen, there's a lot going on: a ton of lush instrumentation, complex and/or humorous lyrics, time changes and vocalization.
Take a listen to these songs and tell me what brewery YOU think of. I'll post mine eventually, but I'll give you a hint that it is a Wisconsin brewery or brewpub.
ps. I want to make this a regular feature, so let me know what you think.
Allo' Darlin' - Henry Rollins Don't Dance
Andrew Bird - Imitosis
I'm From Barcelona - Mingus
You'll have to click through for this one, sorry.
Miniature Tigers - Giraffe
So, what brewery does that music remind you of?
