One time not too long ago, I went to this party that didn’t make me feel totally uncomfortable, the people were nice and smart and the conversations weren’t forced. When I got home, I laid down with my back against my bed, and my hands under my head, and turned this song on. It was great and I felt really, really happy.
…I don’t quite remember where I was going with this, but this song is perfect to listen to at night.
At first, I started to cringe.
Then I started to smile.
I am so glad Destroyer’s new album is getting some hype, I really hope to see it on a lot of end of the year lists. This isn’t from his new album, but Kaputt did remind me of just how great their 2006 album Destroyer’s Rubies is. I’d say Dan Bejar is one of my favourite lyricists, and that’s coming from someone who usually finds new music kind of boring. Although, with his accent, I’m pretty sure I’d find anything he says witty.
“I didn’t stand a chance
I couldn’t stand at all
You looked ok with the others
You looked great on your own”
One of my favourite songs of 2010. I am completely jealous that I didn’t think of that guitar riff at the beginning first.
I said “I wanna be a singer like Lou Reed”
“I like Lou Reed” she said sticking her tongue in my ear
“Let’s go, let’s sit, let’s talk”
“Politics go so good with beer”
“And while we’re at it baby, why don’t you tell me one of your biggest fears?”
I said “Losing my penis to a whore with disease”
“Just kidding” I said “Losing my life to a whore with disease”
She said “Excuse me, please?”
I said “Please… I’m a humble guy with a healthy desire”
“Don’t give me no shit because…”
Only Black Francis…
(I’d just like to apologize in advance for the ridiculous Pixies spam that is sure to come).
“You were the very first one”
Aww, I love it when great bands have a great sense of humour.
“You get under my skin
I don’t find it irritating
You always play to win
But I won’t need rehabilitating”
I am basically mad at everyone who’s heard this band and has not told me about it right now.
If I could look half as good as Matt Berninger when I’m forty, I’d be absolutely cool with that
I’m pretty sure this is the first band to make me realize, “Oh, there’s actually really great music before the 2000’s?”
No matter how bad
some most of Robert Pollard’s solo stuff is, I will always love them for that.
“Every thousand years
This metal sphere
Ten times the size of Jupiter
Floats just a few yards past the earth
You climb on your roof
And take a swipe at it
With a single feather
Hit it once every thousand years
Till you’ve worn it down
To the size of a pea
Yeah I’d say that’s a long time
But it’s only half a blink
In the place you’re gonna be”
This is what I have been listening to instead of doing everything I should be doing.
Is it just me, or is the title “Gold Soundz” really visually appealing?
“We take drugs to make music to take drugs to”
