The Quinn’s Daily Spinn: Monday, July 13
I’m back! I took last week to disconnect and camp across the Midwest (largely away from people, as is customary in 2020).
With that, let’s get into a Daily Spinn that veers briefly away from the “indie” world, and features one of my personal favorite acts.
Famed SoCal reggae rock band Dirty Heads have been giving fans a treat every two weeks in quarantine, by constructing live stream performances of each one of their albums, in order. This past Friday, they performed songs from their 2016 self-titled record — and, as has been the case on these streams, threw in a surprise.
In particular, the band performed “For What It’s Worth (Stop, Hey What’s That Sound?),” the 1966 protest anthem from Buffalo Springfield. Written by two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Stephen Stills, the tune’s message holds up well today, given the climate of modern times. Furthermore, Dirty Heads’ adaptation is tastefully done, and gives another glimpse of what the versatile, always-eclectic Huntington Beach natives can do.
So, I’ve included the performance below as today’s Daily Spinn. Enjoy it!
