I’m no Said The Gramophone but if I were I’d tell you a story about a boy who walks to the river’s edge to find salvation. Instead he jumps in the river and gives himself up to God. God merrily takes him as that is God’s role in this story. No salvation, no warning, no remorse. A life snuffed out.
I’m no Stereogum but if this was his post it would have pictures of Lindsey Lohan naked at Leonardo Dicaprio’s beach house and the unreleased b-side to the Gnarls Barkely track “Crazy”.
I’m no Fluxblog but if he took my place today this post would be filled with industry asides and music criticism that would leave you breathless.
But you’re stuck with just me and all I can say about the song below by Elam Blackman is that you should listen to it prone, on our back, in your bed, with the lights out, on a really good pair of headphones. It doesn’t work on headphones because it’s sonically involved like say the Beastie Boys but instead because it’s stripped down and roughly recorded. All of the songs images (an angel of the floor, love in Mexico, spines of books, flowers and clouds) and it’s circular structure are readily apparent as are the songs slight flaws like a breath here or a pause there and a casual remark caught on tape at the very end. Enjoy.
Bonus song Silver Sips
Below is a infrequent and unscientific weekly mp3blog roundup, something I should do much more of.
Dream of Horses makes me extremely jealous by having two songs by the Peggy Honeywell record Honey For Dinner on Galaxia Records.
I know you read it religiously but you may have missed a song from the new White Hassle record posted by Eugen Mirman on Said the gramophone.
