The custom concern for the people,
Build up the monuments and steeples to wear out our eyes.
I get up just about noon,
My head sends a message for me to reach for my shoes and then walk.
Got to go to work, got to go to work, got to have a job.
Modest Mouse - Custom Concern
AM I DOIN’ IT RITE NOW?
yay i’m so proud of myself
Starts out minimal/glitchy. Jumps into a basic beat. Halfway into the song, post rock.
Really good-sounding post rock/metal. Raw and slow, but with a lot of points that had me interested.
Stop right there, That’s exactly where I lost it.
See that line? Well I never should have crossed it.
Stop right there, Well I never should have said
That it’s the very moment that
I wish that I could take back.
Story time. So my Psych teacher puts up a movie, book, and music suggestion every Friday on the board. This week’s movie was The Royal Tenenbaums, which I’ll be watching for the second time a few minutes. The book suggestion was Perks Of Being A Wallflower, and I nearly lost my shit, in my mind of course. (Side note, I might be meeting a friend soon to go watch it and he loves the book just as much as I do and it makes me so happy and I’m so excited that my mom actually said yes) And the music suggestion was The Arcade Fire so now I’ve had this song on repeat for about 3 hours. And a few weeks ago he was playing The Lumineers during class and this class is just so nice and it makes me feel so much better. I wish I could just have his class over and over again because it makes me feel like everything will be okay.
If I was scared, I would
And if I was pure, you know I would
And if I was yours, but I’m not
Now you’re knockin’ at my door
Saying please come out with us tonight
But I would rather be alone
Than pretend I feel alright
These guys are hilarious and I love them. I think TBTB is one of my guilty pleasures, kinda like how you liked Brokencyde when you were in middle school or whatever. Except these guys are good. And hilarious, especially with their fans.
This will probably be the only synthcore song I ever post, because this is the only synthcore band I like.
I really enjoyed this song. Post rock usually bores me half to death unless there’s some unique and interesting part of the song that keeps my attention, and this song definitely kept my interest. I especially love the acoustic guitar & drum work about half-way in.
And since these guys are on tumblr (and like my stuff, to boot) here’s a plug: http://whenwhalescollide.tumblr.com/
Reminds me of A Hope For Home. I am now obsessed with this song.
We were born and raised the same way
So what gives you the right to say
At least I’m not a liar
At least I’m not a cheat
