If you told me I could only ever listen to one band for the rest of my life, well first of all I'd say you were a bit of a dick for forcing such an unnecessary restriction on me. But if you insisted, because that's just the way you are, I'd answer with Fleetwood Mac. When it comes to taking you on a journey, there's just no one quite like the Mac.
Arguably the most heroic thing about this week's entry is the superhuman effort required to pick just one song from the gold mine that is their discography, but in the end I settled on Little Lies. It's an expansive track layered with intricate details; I hear something new each time I listen to it, which is one of my favourite things about any song of this calibre.
Of course, the focus of the track is the story, which to me is really about dealing with the less desirable qualities of whoever it is we're with, knowing full-well that no one can ever really be perfect for us. Sometimes heroes have to alter the narrative to make them easier to root for, because in the end, 'doing the right thing' is often entirely subjective, and even acts of apparent evil can be viewed differently from another perspective. It takes a lot of strength (or stupidity, again depending on your perspective) to be able to throw on a pair of rose-tinted sunglasses and immerse yourself in a reality that you're fully aware is imagined.
One thing's for certain though; no matter how you interpret the meaning behind this week's track, I think we can all agree on the fact that it's an absolute masterpiece x

About the curator - Matt Jenko
Matt Jenko is a university postgraduate and music producer with an unhealthy obsession with Rick & Morty and all things Game of Thrones. When he’s not in the studio (a rare occurrence these days), he’s fueling his passion for music either on the net or out in the real world. He likes being out in the nature (in the least strenuous capacity though, let’s be real here) and chilling with his cat, and he’s also pretty proud of his mammoth collection of books that he’s never read.
