Pointless video post – ‘Drowning in a Daydream’ by Corrosion of Conformity

More Corrosion of Conformity for y’all, gentle readers. Hempy, sludgy, bluesy, whisky-fuelled Southern rock from some of the true masters of the genre. In this case, though, the lyrics aren’t the usual pro-Third World, anti-neoliberal thrashy revolutionary political anger one might expect – there’s a psychedelic, introspective, oddly religious lyricism to this song in particular. The riffing is there, of course, but this song rides much more on the rhythm, such that it catches up to you and you start headbanging before you know what you’re about. Weird how they do that, eh? As always, do enjoy!
