First Watch: Sego, 'Whatever Forever'

Sego's music is frenetic, agitated and immediate. In a new video for the song, "Whatever Forever," the band speaks to the anesthetized frenzy of the-day-to-day.

Singer and guitarist Spencer Petersen wrote to tell me that "the song itself is about finding oneself in a state of numbness and lack of excitement — and resorting to extremes to find it again, to varying degrees of success — a person wandering through life doing whatever without much enjoyment or pain about it. It's easy to get caught up in that comfortable way of life without questioning ones' motives."

Sego's music is steeped in '90s grunge with a good dose of '70s British bands such as Gang of Four. Spencer Petersen and bandmate Thomas Carroll found their love of music while living in Provo, Utah but have since relocated to downtown LA. They are currently about to head on with OK GO.

In 1988, a determined Bob Boilen started showing up on NPR's doorstep every day, looking for a way to contribute his skills in music and broadcasting to the network. His persistence paid off, and within a few weeks he was hired, on a temporary basis, to work for All Things Considered. Less than a year later, Boilen was directing the show and continued to do so for the next 18 years.
