I hope this blog can help facilitate that experience for everyone.
However, there is something great about stumbling onto an incredible song from a band that you already know. It is almost like hearing a family member or old friend take a stance on an issue or dive into a deep discussion that you never knew they would be interested in. It is really exciting because you never knew you could go there with them while also a bit shocking because you wonder how you missed this part of them for so long.
My recent experience was with our old friend Pearl Jam. Last September I was lucky enough to see them in concert (mostly thanks to good friends and a very supportive wife) at their 20th anniversary two day festival in Wisconsin. Since then I have be absorbing every bit of live Pearl Jam that I can get my hands on.
While listening through 'Live at the Gorge' (album cover below - I highly recommend) I came across 'Footsteps'. Despite this being a b-side song it was on their Lost Dogs album.
Maybe it is a song that everyone is familiar with but I was not. Needless to say it has been playing over and over again through my iphone and in my head (along with the Baroness singles listed in the last posting which makes for a weird combination).
Sometimes discovering one or two new songs from an artist you already love is just as exciting as finding something new. Enjoy some 'Footsteps' and let us know what other songs by an artist you love caught you off guard because you never knew they were there.
