ASMW – Pavement Candy


Fresh from the toe of your stocking over the fireplace, the band for this week is Pavement Candy. Pavement Candy is based in Tokyo, and has a fusion sound like The Charlatans or maybe early Phish. They have been performing since May 2004. The track I’m highlighting, Old Friends, New Surroundings, tries to capture the essence of those conversations where you locate a long lost friend. There’s catching up to do, and much to say, with never enough time to say it.

Old friends in new surroundings
Familiar faces that stay true
Sing you a happy song
The trenches have been dug for too long

No margin for error now
The truth lies somewhere within your eyes
Wake up feeling like the summer sun
See you at a place I know you can reach


Amie Street Wednesday

This week, I’ve rediscovered Big Society, a band whose music I bought back a few weeks ago, along with some other selections.
I’m testing the new player that Mouseclone has been helping to develop. The plugin isn’t finished yet, but should be coming along. In the meantime, I’ve stolen creatively borrowed the working code.
Big Society is headed up by Tom Shields, a singer and songwriter originally from Rhode Island (home of the oldest operating tavern in the United States), who met a fledgling band in Raleigh 15 years ago, and they have been together ever since. The song Silvery Moon has a classic rock feel with a folksy rhythm. I get the feeling of listening to Bob Dylan or maybe early Phish with this one. It’s upbeat, looking forward to the future “with my one true love/curled up by side.”
