referencing Today, LP, Album, AU002. ‘Today’ was recorded during a steamy July in just three days, with most of Dean’s vocals sounding like they’d been beamed in from another planet. One of the reasons Dean’s slid guitar work sounds so original and fresh is because this was the very first time he had ever played slide.

com/Galaxy 500 (album). Galaxie 500 was an American alternative rock band that formed in 1987 and split up in 1991 after releasing three albums. Guitarist Dean Wareham, drummer Damon Krukowski and bassist Naomi Yang had met at the Dalton School in New York City in 1981, but began playing together during their time as students at Harvard University. Wareham and Krukowski had formed a series of punk-influenced student bands, before Wareham returned to New York.
Enter Galaxie 500, one of my favourite bands from the 1980s. Where other bands were singing about sex, money and cocaine, Galaxie 500, composed of guitarist Dean Wareham, bassist Naomi Yang and drummer Damon Krukowski, took a more introspective root, writing about urban alienation, angst and love. Today" is just a powerhouse of an album, both for its fascinating sound overall and for its emotional punch. Wareham has some of the best vocal takes of album of the decade, the musicianship from all members fits together so perfectly, and their simple mantra that maybe being alone is a good thing really speaks to the outcast in all of us. The album isn't really perfect, but for anyone who appreciates some beautiful music, or has ever just felt a little isolated, it's a definitive statement and a must listen.
Galaxie 500 formed in Boston, MA in 1986 and comprised vocalist/guitarist Dean Wareham (a transplanted New Zealand native), bassist Naomi Yang and drummer Damon Krukowski, longtime friends who first met in high school in New York City before all three attended Harvard University. Wareham and Krukowski initially teamed in the short-lived Speedy and the Castanets, which was just the two of them playing a sort of mock punk; later, the duo recruited Yang to play bass.
Galaxie 500's debut doesn't merely live up to the sweet promise of the band's debut single "Tugboat," Today's final song, but almost without trying becomes its own gently powerful touchstone.
