These are some songs I’ve been listening to lately.
Anna Meredith — “Nautilus”
At 2:03, this song goes from “Maybe these alien visitors come in peace” to “Oh no the skies have turned to blood.”
Julien Baker — “Sprained Ankle”
It was a mild winter here. As quickly as the snow fell, it melted. I park my car in a dirt driveway between my apartment building and a blighted garage, formerly an auto-parts warehouse, now a storage unit for hollowed computer servers and clandestine projects. It’s an early mud season and if I don’t move my car before the morning thaw, I’m stuck there for the day. I work from home a lot.
The new Savages album is fast becoming my fave so far this year.
Mitski — “Your Best American Girl”
Lucy Dacus — “Troublemaker Doppelgänger”
“No child is born knowing there’s an ugly or evil thing. / When did my folks stop covering my eyes?”
