Yeah, another week kind of got away from me there. I apologize for that. We’ll pick up again next week without further prolonging the misery of poor, doomed Bruce Barnes.
If you enjoy this song even half as much as I do, then perhaps this video will help to make up for my Trib Force Monday failings.
That’s “Vomit,” from the new Girls album Father, Son, Holy Ghost, which has a handful of pretty good songs and another handful of pretty great ones. I’m a sucker for the kind of Gospel-flavored crescendo we get at the end of this song — starting at around the 4:30 mark, if you’re impatient. (That’s Vearline Board and/or Tisha Fredrick doing the “Great Gig in the Sky” background vocals there, running away with the song the way Merry Clayton runs away with “Gimme Shelter.”)
Christopher Owens says the title of the song comes from Proverbs 26:11: “Like a dog that returns to its vomit is a fool who reverts to his folly.” Make of that what you will. Owens is an interesting fellow.
