dirty projectors

thank you western vinyl

great show. out of gratitude, i am posting a few of the strongest words from rise above. i should mention the talent dave longstreth demonstrated in his guitar playing, seeing the finger picking live and hearing it played loud and raw revealed that he was not simply a studio guitarist. furthermore, his voice along with the two female vocalists were more pleasing than on the album. i was not disappointed by overproduction as i have been many times (hear: of montreal), and i feared to happen again-i often have little faith in the talent all too image-oriented scene that is “indie” music.

“rise above”

Society’s arms think they’re smart
I find satisfaction in what they’re lacking ’cause
We are born with a chance
And I’m gonna have my chance
Rise above

“thirsty and miserable”

My brother wants a ride
To the liquor store
You pity him
You pity him for what he wants it for

“spray paint (the walls)”

Oh, I gonna go wild and spray paint the walls…

life, is the disease

to susanna waiche: i like your voice, i like your violin bass, i like your red hat. you are intimidatingly cute.

check out “thirsty and miserable” on muxtape, and if you don’t have an account already, it is a good tool. plus, the design is real pleasing. the pace of the progression of creativity on the internet is staggering at times.
