I am feeling great about music lately, especially haunting and distorted things that somehow turn sweet.
WOVEN BONES Your Sorcery
BEACH FOSSILS daydream
a perfect summer jam
I just got the new Grass Widow/RankXerox split tape from wizard mountain. WOWEEWOO
Grass Widow is my favorite bay-area band right now. They are no joke. Celebrate the Mundane is a song and ethos I can really get behind.
all these bands are so good.
Somehow these weird garage/low-fi revival stuff makes me feel really young, excited, and connected. Maybe it is the pastiche of rock and roll as a place where youth's self-awareness coalesced into a cultural form. Maybe it is because I am young in a city with great rock and roll- historically and now.
Time may not be on anyone's side, but young hearts be free tonight.
(did you know that frolicing=freedom?)
