I'm Not Gonna Get Caught

Quick question regarding Wilco's "Pot Kettle Black."

Is it just me, or is that beginning little bit of feedback supposed to mimic the sound of a tea kettle whistle?

This just occurred to me yesterday. At first I thought it was really clever, but now I'm wondering if I might just be a few years late to the (tea) party.

Wilco - "Pot Kettle Black" (live at Lollapalooza 2008)

*Not sure if you can really hear it on this live version -- oh well.

A Wedding Band covers Mazarin's "Another One Goes By"

So I saw this and I think you'll agree -- it had to be shared. It's a great tune by the now-defunct Mazarin -- currently reincarnated as Black Stoltzfus after the band's lead dude Quentin Stoltzfus. You may recognize it from the Walkmen's A Hundred Miles Off album... a good cover. This one? Well, you decide.
