Sriracha-Lada. New Music From Filmloom.

A pirate walks into a bar and orders a beer.

The bartender looks down and says “Do you know that you have a steering wheel in your pants?”

The pirate replies “Aye, it’s drivin’ me nuts”

The Sriracha-Lada is a spin on the Michelada, a Mexican beverage made with beer, hot sauce, and lime juice. It’s a super tasty drink that packs a spicy punch.

My cocktail, with its all over festive orange hue, looked nothing like the one pictured in Bon Appétit. No matter because it was delicious and refreshing. If you like Sriracha, give this one a go.

It is pretty tough to put a label on exactly what kind of music Filmloom is making on their new album ‘Perennial’. There is definitely electronica, pop, experimental ambient, and a touch of prog.

The band says this about themselves: “Two drum smashing, synth tickling, trumpet licking hooligans made this album because they wanted to”.

Every song has an interesting vibe. The very best thing about the record for me, though, is the amazing lyrics.

Take these lines from VCR:

“The truth is I’m afraid,
to see my life replayed.
So I taped over all of it.

Put my life inside the VCR,
press play while sitting on the floor.
Must have written over the the tape,
this VHS isn’t the same.
Fast-foreword to the very end,
is the last bit still there?
I’ll pretend. Auto-rewind kicks in as it fades,
blue light flickers on my face.”

I love the musical interlude halfway through, too.

Check out Filmloom on Facebook. You can buy their music on Bandcamp.

Cheers!
