Black Forest Fire
Hail From: Austin, Texas
Song: 'Live News Feed'
Album: Transit of Venus [Amazon]
Sounds Like: My Bloody Valentine, Women
In Their Words: "Karen and Doug started playing this drum/bass groove to get practice going and I didn't want to mess it up so I just started quietly bending guitar strings. The triumphant guitar melody came out of no-where, so the words became this desperate love song for someone you didn't know, someone you almost knew but had lost somehow, like in a dream. It was like the news ticker below the cable news -- 'lost elderly couple in blue sedan' or whatever. It really defined the tone we wanted for the record and became the first song." -- Guitarist Jay Tonne
