The Red Hot Chili Peppers have been releasing a series of vinyl singles consisting of tracks that didn't make it on the I'm With You album. The latest offering, in my opinion, is their best. A couple of spacey songs with strings, one appropriately titled "Pink As Floyd".
For those who want the Chilis to get back to the days when they ripped it up a la Blood Sugar Sex Magic, don't hold your breath. That was a completely different band on a different planet altogether. I've loved the Chili Peppers ever since i saw them play on the back of a flatbed truck in a muddy field at UMASS Amherst back in 1987. They were out of control, exploding and imploding at the same time. The ride for them up to this point has been like dodging falling concrete panels in the Sumner Tunnel. But they have persevered, stayed true to themselves, and continue to make amazing and surprising music.
