Once upon a time, I had a radio show that only played bands currently performing in the District. That show is super dead, so we’ve resurrected it (with way more words and far less radio) in the form of this column. Every day I’ll review a song from a band playing in D.C. that night. The rules are, 1. I can only listen to the song once and 2. I only have until the end of the song to finish my review.

JOHNNYSWIM – DIAMONDS

Well, these desert sounds are nice. They’ve suddenly been interrupted by acoustic guitar. I dont know. I kind of liked the ambient wind noises. They were calming. I guess this song is fine. Now there’s clapping and people chanting “oh!” That should probably tell you everything you need to know about this song. The parts without clapping are okay, I guess.

You can see Johnnyswim tonight at the Birchmere. Get ready for a lot of clapping.
