Find Me On:
Thanks for the “Holland 1945″ context, I teared up. Great finale.
Great interview! Cool to see how positive of a year Laura’s had, it’s inspiring
Yeah weird for them to completely leave it off this list. It’s a good album, top 10 for sure
Yeah this evaluation is a little premature
Just listened to your list James. Lots of awesome stuff I haven’t heard!
Yeah I love the ambiguity in that lyric. Is the pressure cooker turned up TO high or is it turn up TOO high. Personally I think it’s turned up “too high” and it is a metaphor for a family about to boil over, but I think that says more about me as a listener. Depth and ambiguity is present in all art that is worthwhile and nothing exemplified this better in 2014 than “Too Many Cooks”.

“He gave me a dollar
A blood-soaked dollar
I cannot get the spot out but
It’s okay it still works in the store” – tUnE-yArDs
I like this idea.
Best Line: “I want a love that falls as fast as a body from the balcony” – Mitski
“How many people rise and think
Oh good the stranger’s body’ s still here
Our arrangement hasn’t changed
Now I’ve got a lifetime to consider all the ways
I grow more disappointing to you as my beauty warps and fades
I suspect you feel the same
When I was young I dreamt of a passionate obligation to a roommate” – Father John MIsty
Best Song Lyrically: Either “Stoicville” by T-Pain or “Content Nausea” by Parkay Quarts
I was actually just thinking the other day what song I would pick from Bury Me At Makeout Creek to be the “best” and I also thought it was First Love / Late Spring! I think that song does the best job at encapsulating all the things that are so great about that album, followed closely by Townie and Texas Reznikoff
The piano reminds me of Teardrop
