I've been on a big shoegaze resurgence lately, so this honestly feels like it was tailor made to get pumped right into my ear holes. So goddamn into it.

In my excitement, I missed the "start at the 30:00 mark" and was sitting here, mouth agape, thinking "Holy fuck, Beach House really changed on this one."

Ticker, not tanker. What the fuck, Max.

July 1, 2015 on Yes I’m Changing: The Bold Metamorphosis Of Tame Impala’s Currents
The moment for me is the line "If my tanker fails make up some other story / If I never come back, tell my mother I'm sorry." The drums phase in over a synth line reminiscent of Lonerism, and Parker sings of having to move forward with all the knowing melancholy of the unknown consequences that brings. There's a beat, and then the song launches into an instrumental that takes Tame Impala as we know it, catapults it around, and lets us hear exactly what those consequences are, literally chopping up and morphing the sound in the process. It's fucking incredible.

Loving Meek's album. That said, I think Summertime 06 might become my album of the year. Holy shit, y'all. I just can't stop listening to it. Rap >>> music.

A common rapper misconception, but it is, in fact, quite false.

I _love_ the crazy reverbed bass slinking throughout the entire background of "Norf Norf." The way it twists off beat only to have the drums and it connect on the same count is some deeply satisfying shit.

For some reason, I read Zane Lowe as Billy Zane. I'm both pretty sure this isn't the first time I've done that and pretty sure that I would much rather it randomly be Billy Zane interviewing Eminem. "I was in Titanic, you know. And Twin Peaks. Oh, and Zoolander. You saw that one, didn't you?" "Eminem, that was me. I'm Billy Zane."

Not into that Refused at all. Pretty disappointing, honestly. But Wildheart/Summertime 06/Nymphs III are my big three in a schizophrenic rotation this week. Wildheart is exactly the kinda summertime record I want right now.

I've actually been listening to/playing a lot of The National lately, so maybe it's starting to soak in.

Oh, well, I'm fine then. I've had ants before. They're not that bad, though. Flies, though. Lemme tell ya about them flies, lobster dog. Terrible shit. You taste em the whole way down. Buzzing against the throat. And no one let's you kiss them with flies in your throat.

It looks like insects to me, crawling out from their burger mass to the bread below in search of freedom. Perhaps, in order to work around the specifics of "meat," a crafty cook in the Garden kitchens realized he could serve some protein patties by frying some flies.

It's kind of weird weather in NYC, and I'm distracting myself from portfolio work. So. I see you scruffy. I see you.

It's why I became an architect instead of a writer. Or it's what happens when you're leaving comments instead of working. Or, well, actually, yeah. It's probably a mixture of those two.
