“Ballad of a Thin Man” – Bob Dylan

27 April 2021

You walk into the room with your pencil in your hand You see somebody naked and you say, “Who is that man?” You try so hard but you don’t understand Just what you will say when you get home Because something is happening here but you don’t know what it is Do you, Mr. Jones?… View Article

“American Pie” by Don McLean

17 March 2021

Haenim -Kim Jung Mi

29 October 2020

Kim Jung Mi’s lyrics resonate with or without an understanding of Korean. The orchestration floats into its own world. The “la la”s of song’s B section seem to carry the listener off on a cloud into a bed of flowers.

From the song’s beautiful album cover to its transient chorus it is a breathtaking experience of humanity.

Dementia/Blue – Scott Garred

13 August 2020

“Close your eyes, and smile a little longer.” In his song “Dementia/Blue” Scott Garred composes a serenade to the warm smoke of withering dreams and failing memories. When one suffers from dementia, they slowly lose cognition, cohesion, and memory. Scott’s song delivers a catharsis onto the process of watching a loved one slowly mentally decay…

I lost something in the hills I lost something in the hills”

Dramamine – Modest Mouse

8 July 2019

“Traveling swallowing Dramamine”

Throughout “Dramamine” the listener is treated to twirling, smooth guitar tones and trenchant vocals backed by a downtempo rhythm able to stir the mind into a piercing lull. Named after an anti-nauseant and motion sickness opioid drug with side-effects of mood-altering drowsiness, “Dramamine” accordingly takes the listener out of whatever emotional, motion sickness-filled reality that they possess and into a trancelike state of sweeping tonal tide pools…

This Year – The Mountain Goats

26 June 2019

“I am going to make it through this year if it kills me”

Themes bursting out of the gates like flood, the Mountain Goats’ “This Year” captures the quintessence of running through the starting line of life head first onto a tightrope and somehow making it to the other side. Multiple hours after sunsets, the day before moving cities, the five to six hours between falling in love and having three papers due the next morning, Jon Darnelle and his band capture the feeling of the post-climactic, blindsiding, and bludgeoning normality that manages to keep life glued together in the best way possible…

John Taylor’s Month Away – King Creosote and Jon Hopkins

26 June 2019

Echoing softly through the lines of a story feeling far older than the one spoken, King Creosote and Jon Hopkins create a snowy retelling of the feeling of bittersweet imperfect but lasting self-confidence. “John Taylor’s Month Away” tells the tale of a reminiscent picture of comparative self awareness contrasting the singer’s current state of life with another of men embarking on a month-long seafaring voyage from the perspective of a swing park in Roome Beach, Scotland…
