From their recent release, Specter at the Feast, this is “Let the Day Begin” by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. The San Francisco-based trio is currently on tour supporting the record, appearing tonight in Washington, D.C. and later this month at the Sasquatch! Festival.
Behrnsie has a love for music that dare not speak its name. He attends many shows and can often be found counting out the beats for no discernible reason. He played alto saxophone in his middle school jazz band, where he was best known for infuriating his instructor when it was revealed that he played everything by ear, and could not in fact read music. He takes great pride that this is the same talent/affliction that got Tori Amos kicked out of the Peabody Academy. He does not live in his parents’ basement….except during the holidays.
