For The Record- 08. July. 2023
All the news that's fit to print, and some that probably isn't
Welcome to another edition of For The Record, a semi-regular good ol’ fashioned link drop, and benefit for paid supporters of On Repeat. The music world is many things, but “boring” is never one of them.
This week we’re discussing the music of The Bear, the trend that needs to end ASAP, and Flea’s pick for the RHCP record he’d like to remake.
All of that and a lot more! Let’s get right into it.
TV show The Bear is inescapable right now. If you haven’t seen it, it’s a character-driven show focusing on a Chicago restaurant and the people that work there. But it’s far more than that, with incredible amounts of nuance and tight writing squished into short episodes.
The music is no exception and has also driven much of the larger discourse. A lot of shows tend to be precious with their soundtracks, using songs as a performative attempt at street cred.
