Thrown Across The Water
It’s funny, how certain times make it impossible to listen to certain songs; and how other songs simply jump out at you. Jump out at you with a force that you hadn’t noticed before. There are songs that only fit break-ups, others that only fit celebration. Right now my head is all over the place; constant noise inside.
All last week I had none of my music to hand but all I wanted to listen to was loud guitars. This week back at home I’m after strings and mood pieces. So Paddy McAloon’s I Trawl The Megahertz (oh such a beautiful record, especially the title track – go and listen if you haven’t) has been on rotation. And the first album by The Guillemots found it’s way into the random play.
Sao Paolo has turned up in other blogs recently. I liked it, but it didn’t speak to me like it is now. Especially the cacophonous strings and piano which sound like the inside of my head. And the second half of the track “thrown across the water like a stone” just says everything to me right now.
