Someday Soon I Know, We’ll All Have To Go

 

“Dreaming Casually” by Thee Midniters slows me down in a good way.

This song starts off all a-shimmer and just slinks its way into your brain. It’s smooth, warm, like a piece of polished obsidian.

Thee Midniters came out of East L.A. and are considered the first “chicano rock” band. They had a couple of hits. but like many other chicano acts that were uneasily categorized, they never hit it super big. I was listening recently to an interview with Sixto Rodriguez  (I’m currently obsessed with his second album, a big flop when it came out in 1972).  Rodriguez, who was from Detroit and Mexican-American had a difficult time, too, trying to find his audience. Strangely enough he was huge in Australia, and even odder, South Africa!

Enjoy this dreamy little number.
