Song Of The Week - Aimee Mann - Goose Snow Cone
Happy 31st everyone – Aimee Mann and Bob Dylan both dropping new albums today. Every month should end like this! The wonderful Ms Mann’s is Mental Illness, and – cheap gag warning – we are already mad for it!
From the opening seconds of this particular song, Mann’s latest feels like a record you’ve known for years, warm and welcoming as much as it is new and beautifully formed. We’ve said it before and we’ll happily say it again – the woman has a facility for melody that is on the McCartney level. We highly recommend you download it, stream it, or – hell – even just go out and buy it (like we used to!) right now.
Oh and if we need to remind you of the movie connection..? Without Aimee Mann, Magnolia would just be a long film with frogs falling from the sky, and Tom Cruise saying the word “Cunt!”
Hit play already. Damn!
