Home – Burden (1999)

YouTubeAmazoniTunes – Discogs

Mercury Rev’s feature a couple of weeks back got me thinking. No live gig has been more of a disappointment than Home’s was in 2000. (I have convinced myself the Glass Spider tour never happened.) Their album XIV was the sort of experimental pop americana that I was lapping up at that time. With echoes of Flaming Lips and Mercury Rev, it was no surprise to find out that it was also produced by David Fridmann. But even more noticeably than Mercury Rev, without Fridmann’s studio production on show, Home were a complete let down in the flesh. This studio version of ‘Burden’ is anything but.

    Could I run to this…no! Would I listen to this in the car…no! Has it ever been used in a commercial…no! That said it grew on me by the end and left me thinking that maybe I could use it on a long run to pass the time more quickly.
