“Buena” by Morphine (1993)

2 12 2015



Bass guitar (two strings, played with a slide).

Mark Sandman’s remarkable voice/vision.

This is greazy, heavy, visceral stuff.  Like human emotion, human struggle.

And it grooves, like a badass.

What is “buena”?  A drug?  A woman?  Love?  Righteous music?  I’m not sure I want to know, preferring “all of the above” as the multiple-choice answer to such questions.

If I had to try to define “cool,” I would offer this as Exhibit 1A.
