Clutching on cliffs, crossing over. Over cracks in the clay, we spread, out. Crossing over. And lie back, on my back, and look back, we looked back, at the sea washing against the clay cliffs. And I said I don’t feel like falling, You said You agreed. And I said I don’t feel like standing in this sea, knee-deep, with nothing to clutch, to hold onto, You said You felt the same. So we climbed the crumbling cliffs, and curled, and cared for our clutching hands. Looking out for the sea, I said I could see where the sea met the sky, You said You could too. And so I knew I was right and You were right and that we were together right.

 

This is a new song from Bon Iver. This is also a new June. I like June because it is the first month to begin with the letter J since January and thus it’s like the final thaw.

So Justin Vernon. January’s winter to Calgary in spring. For Emma, Forever Ago was full of mounting despair; mountains in his mind, ever higher with every attempt to climb them. These mountain peaks, these extremes of human emotion, those cries, those aches in your head, those whatevers – Bon Iver’s ability to capture them, to conquer essentially with guitar and voice, reflects his unique ability. Very good songwriting.

Death Cab For Cutie‘s newest album isn’t recommendable on my part. You should get Bathsnewest release, just so you can say you have it.And to be honest, this Lovesick Synthetic is a cheap shot, but healthy and impressive with noise. Also to conclude this post is a song by Drame, a flirtatious Parisian. We went on a boat ride down that river that goes through Paris, (Paris was an important experience by the way) and there were loads and loads and sheeploads of romantic parisians on the riverbanks, playing acoustic guitars with glasses of wine and whatnot, Safari makes me think of that, especially the way it fades out.
