Uncluded - "Hokey Fright"
As soon as something is described to me as "quirky" I'm out...I can't hang. I immediately picture the most ironic of hipsters praising their latest bootleg of Tuvan throat singing while wearing some obnoxious pastel t-shirt announcing to the world that they "run on puppy power...quirky indeed
This record will probably be described as quirky by the blogosphere but please friends, do NOT let that turn you off.
This is probably the most lyrically well-crafted album to grace my ears so far this year. Kimya Dawson's gentle, quasi-innocent words dance around the gruff verbal maypole that Aesop Rock has firmly planted into a musical landscape that could easily be straight from the pages of the brothers Grimm.
Humor twirls with sadness, introspection bows to sharp observation, minutea has meaning...this record is deeper than it appears yet it can easily be put on as background music to make heads bob.
TLDR? - Magic words from Kimya Dawson and Aesop Rock.
Hey grads....don't let any regretters tell you that your future sucks and you spent all your life's fun in college.
I had a blast in college and wouldn't change any of my experiences for all the tits in Brazil.
That being said there is no part of me that would rather be there than here - I'm not working nearly as hard or as often and have way more time to do the things I love.
You'll be fine. You're vibrating on a whole new level. The new chapters are the best.
Daddy loves you.
