R.I.P. Jason Rosenthal

onthemightofprinces
I grew up playing shows with Jason and his band On the Might of Princes in the late 90s and early 2000s on Long Island, NY.  Although my taste in music was much different at the time, I could appreciate the raw and honest energy he put into every set I’ve seen them play.  Whether there were 5 people at the show or 500, Jason played with a sense of authenticity and passion like he was playing the songs for the very first time.  His music played a vital role during a very important time of my life, and for this I thank him.  For those unfamiliar with his music, here is a solid jumping off point.

This Dream Koala track whirls around a mesmerizing ‘XX-sounding’ guitar line and builds so effortlessly only to escape to the space around it.

 

It’s all about the space in between the song.
