(from Jesus Hits Like the Atom Bomb)
When it comes to Texas band Tripping Daisy, the songs people remember are the modern rock “hits” (e.g. “My Umbrella,” “I Got a Girl”). And that’s the reason why “Forgotten Fridays” exists: to share songs that have otherwise been forgotten.
“Sonic Bloom” was one of Tripping Daisy’s best songs, and it was tucked away on their unpromoted and now out-of-print third album (we lost our copy in a move a few years ago, which is a total drag).
“Sonic Bloom” is as perfect a pop song as we can imagine it. It’ll lift you up and make you feel like everything’s all right with the world, if only for three and a half minutes.
