Gravity Rules - 5 Billion In Diamonds

from the single Gravity Rules (2017)

Butch Vig is a celebrated producer and musician.  His production credits include Nirvana's Nevermind and the albums Gish and Siamese Dream for The Smashing Pumpkins.  He has also served as a member of the band Garbage, co-writing the songs Stupid Girl and Only Happy When It Rains.

This August, he launches his latest project, a band named 5 Billion In Diamonds.  Their debut single Gravity Rules has become a playlist favorite of mine over the past couple of months.

With its acoustic guitar and floating production, the song gives off a seventies vibe reminiscent of fuzzed out nights smoking dope in your friend's mother's Camaro.

What is amazing though is how that vibe slides right in with other modern songs.  I believe that part of it is the tune's impeccable production.  I find myself listening ti this song over and over, repeatedly picking out the beauty in its craftsmanship.

Can't wait to hear the rest...
