O Positive - Weight of Days
“I remember hearing Oedipus play ‘Weight of Days’ on Boston Emissions, and that was pretty emotional for me to hear vinyl on the radio. That was pretty amazing.” – Dave Herlihy, May 2012.
Around the time that Toyboat was released, it seemed as though WBCN and WFNX had re-included several of the band’s deep tracks in their playlists. I vividly remember hearing “Up Up Up” and “Say Goodbye” in regular rotation, and when I finally got a copy of the Only Breathing EP as a Christmas gift, listening to it felt like meeting an old friend.
I love the echoing guitar sound on this one. The swirling melody and guitar hook sound like bird calls to me.
