New Music #2 – Ween and Aaron Freeman

I’m on board. Go ahead and hit play (\/) and we’ll get to chatting.

Ween is (mostly) Aaron Freeman and Mickey Melchiando. Its this strange mix of dance and singer songwriter and after recently listening to THIS podcast, I started to really dig the IDEA of what they were talking about, a sort of (what SEEMED like) a reaction against punk rock, and drawing more from the light rock vibes of the 80s than the hard rocking of the likes of The Dead Kennedys (in my opinion, and despite what this interview states).

I can dig it in a really strange (for me) way.

Also, here is Aaron Freeman’s (Gene Ween) debut solo album, “Marvelous Clouds” a so-called tribute album for songwriter Rod McKuen. Its good and singersongwritery with a couple of extra goodies. It feels a little bit gross to listen to it, to be honest, but I am enjoying it. Check it out (\/)
