Hi, my name is Stereo Mike
Occasionally I experience this odd phenomenon with music circa 1994 to 1998 where certain songs see to be innate. I can’t remember hearing these songs for the first time, or even life without knowing them. I guess if you’re exposed to music in this window it craves out a space deep in your memory. ‘Drinking in L.A.’ is one of those songs.
This song immediately transports you to a lazy 90’s afternoon when everyone had just enough money and didn’t have to work. The biggest problem is working out a screenplay – which is being aided with beer. This song is so chilled out with its fuzzy guitars and soothing backing vocals, but it still has a hint of despair. This is a quarter-life crisis and a stoner staple rolled into one.
