Good morning. We used to play a LOT of Kelly Slater Pro Surfer on XBox, and if memory serves, we saved our best surfing for those moments when Pearl Jam‘s “WMA” started howling out our TV’s shitty speakers. Not too many years later, one of us wrote a review of Backspacer with that memory in mind, but more pressingly the idea that Pearl Jam wouldn’t be Pearl Jam if it weren’t Eddie Vedder’s love affair with the ocean. Those two go deep, as made even more evident by this new video for Backspacer highlight “Amongst The Waves”. If Kelly Slater makes another game and this song soundtracks its surf, we’ll be quick to pick video games back up again. But just this once.
