Desolation Wilderness – “Come Over in Your Silver Car”

Remember Galaxie 500? 

So do these guys: 

This takes me back to those countless late nights spent watching Don’t Let Our Youth Go to Waste in a stoned stupor, wondering how stock footage of a demolition derby could be so sad. Sure, Desolation Wilderness is 20 years late — and, judging from this track, they do little to update the form with which they’re working — but, like the Pains of Being Pure at Heart’s 2009 homage to The Go-Betweens and Field Mice, you just can’t hate on something that sounds so much like home.
