You post incredible music and I'm curious what your thoughts are on some of the songs you post. Would you mind sharing any going forward? You choose things that always blow me away...
Thank you for listening along :) What are your thoughts on the songs?
For me, Tomoya Naka’s “Rainy Day" really brings home that feeling of wistful melancholy that comes with the rain, yet the song remains warm and subtly reminiscent. I think the song captures the essence of it’s title.
Tom Day’s style is incredible, and I love the understated tone that usually begins his tracks and how he crafts each layer of sound carefully until it comes together in a bone-chillingly wonderful way. “New Beginnings" is a shining example of that.
I was watching a movie the other night when suddenly, it went out of sync. The lips of the characters weren’t matching up with the words they were saying.
Don’t you hate it when that happens?
So I got up. I tried pressing the pause button. When that didn’t work, I decided to restart the movie, hoping it would fix the problem. In the end I gave up and just stopped watching the movie altogether.
That was when the thought hit me like a lightning bolt. This is what anxiety is like. That out of sync feeling. Only imagine it is not on a movie screen—it’s in your brain. The worse thing is, you have no control over it. There is no fix. You have to wait until things begin to feel normal again but when you’re in that state of mind, you can’t tell if it ever will. And that is what makes it so terrifying.
“People say I love you all the time - when they say, ‘take an umbrella, it’s raining,’ or ‘hurry back,’ or even ‘watch out, you’ll break your neck.’ There are hundreds of ways of wording it - you just have to listen for it, my dear.”—John Patrick, The Curious Savage
