Fasman’s Finds – Steely Dan

Fasman’s Finds is our column from Rebecca Fasman (intrepid record nerd, DJ, and curator at the Kinsey Institute) in which she shares what she’s listening to and why. 

THIS IS A PRO-STEELY DAN POST. I truly TRULY do not understand human people with souls who don’t like Steely Dan. WHY DO YOU HATE JOY? Anyways, last week I was in a small weirdly-built house in Michigan and it was fun and yes I micro-dosed and yes we drove around singing this song by Steely Dan which is the best Steely Dan song (I will fight you). I HIGHLY recommend this whole album, which I hadn’t listened to in a while and OH MY GOD is it good, and I especially recommend playing this song very loud with friends in the car driving fast through one-lane roads in a rural part of wherever you are. You’re welcome.

The B-Side: E22

“Fearless” by E22 pulls together two great flavors for one tasty treat. Blondie style hooks meet a roughed up around the edges post punk sound and man oh man does it work. Gives us a glimpse at what might’ve been had young punkers Debbie and Co. had taken a left into darker Ian Curtis / Peter Murphy territory instead of heading off toward new wave pop. It’s catchy and dirty at the same time and we dig it.
