The day is dismal. The sky is grey. I've explicated my poetry for the night, and all I can get myself to do is suffocate my mind in the dark, beautiful, creepy music I have set in front of me.
We all have to relapse at some point, don't we?
Tom Waits - Dead and Lovely
This song is from the movie Wrist Cutters. I think that's all that needs to be said.
Cat Power - Hate
No hidden meaning here. She's like a really dark Florence Welch. Kind of in love.
Jeff Buckley - New Year's Prayer (remix)
Oh Jeff Buckley, you and your voice. I used to listen to Hallelujah all the time before I would go to bed in highschool. This one just creates that feeling inside of you that tells you that there is something else you should be looking for in life.
Manu Chao - King of Bongo
AH. My friend showed me this song yesterday, and I became fully obsessed. It sucks that I don't understand it because I don't speak 6 languages like he does...
But it's SUCH a cool song, oh my goodness. It reminds me so much of the Gorillaz...gone French.
Get Busy Committee - Dancin' On Ya (Xzibit, Paul Wall, Murs Remix)
They forget the word GRAVE in the title. Minor detail of the intensity of this track. I'm really not a huge fan of hip-hop either, I think we all know this, but this is tightttttt.
Bikini - ACheerleader
This is happier. Whatever. It's a cool Animal Collective-esque feeling song. As soon as 2:22 hits, oh my the feeling you will receive.
