Ryan Adams :: Banana Jam

Ryan Adams fanatics will no doubt have noticed the change to the artist’s website the past 24 hours. Now when one visits the site they are greeted by a steady stream of falling bananas, a bit of french, and a wordless, continous jam. Anyone know if this “song” has an official name? Until then, here is a rip of it — which I’m calling “Banana Jam”; dig that.

Update: Thanks to A.D. reader, “Newton,” the name of below track is entitled “21st Centrury War.”
