"I wanna get high with you in my room.
I want it to rain.”

I love these lines so much. It encompasses a very modern and rebellious, yet cathartic and romantic desire. To relax inside: inside your home, your private space, and inside your own head, and to share that relaxation with someone, so that you have a little vulnerability to maybe allow each other to find a deeper connection. 

Then, to ask for nature to allow us what literature and film and all kinds of narratives have told us is nature’s sympathy; rain from the sky. I live in the desert and if you pray, rain is what you pray for. Something too slow down the city, allow everyone too feel a little cooler. 

These lines signify the extension of peace not only to the most internal part of yourself, but also to another specific individual, and to the world at large. It’s a prayer for everything, internally and externally to be calm and centered and thoughtul.

Believe the hype. The ミラクルミュージカル (Miracle Musical) album Hawaii: part II is that good. It’s some insanely well blended music, in mainly english (I know the Japanese characters might throw some). The overal sound reminiscent of the game Bioshock, utilizing orchestral scores, and 40’s 50’s style melodies,  but with some well place electronic elements ranging from daft punkish vocoder, to octopus projecty synths. Might be my favorite of 2014 so far.

Q
How do you feel about Fun.?
A

strongly. I am burdened, my friend, burdened.  A few songs by the format were included on the first mix cd I received from a red haired pixie dream girl in my halcyon high school days. This mix was my first exposure to indie music, and quite literally changed who I am. I revered these artists on a spiritual level, and to some degree still do. Then, in the dog days of 2009, there was word that that format boy, Nate Ruess, had formed a new band, and we all ought to be on our toes for their new album. Aim and Ignite was a blessing. Aim and ignite was all the kids were talking about. Fun. had delivered what was arguably the pinnacle of indie pop. The individual tracks were very well produced and toyed with baroque pop, while it was still in vogue, and had some definite queen vibes, but more in league with the shins. Overall, it was one of those albums that you could keep in your car for 2 months and not get bored with it. I personally expected great things from this new band. Now 2009 was a great year for music, (merriweather post pavilion, Hospice, Actor, XX), So it’s understandable that the hype died down around fun.. but then word came of their inevitable sophomore album.  When the song “some nights” was first released, it seemed uncharacteristic. Almost as if fun. weren’t fully in charge of their music. when the album came out, it was as if aim and ignite had never existed. Heavily auto tuned tracks, cliche 808 beats, pallid lyrics, where was the fun. I knew? A little research showed that the production team behind some nights had worked on production for kanye, eminem, and mainly pop hip hop artists, not a slight on these producers, but their style did not merge organically with the band’s. This didn’t seem to matter however, as mainstream music critics showered the album with praise. Suddenly, it wasn’t the kids who were talking about fun. no, they had  removed fun. from their vocabulary. It was all over the radio, and on nobody’s record player. What should have cemented their place in the indie crowd lost them any reverence they once had. But on nights like these, I’ll pull out my copy of aim and ignite., and remember that many bands have come full circle and put out their best materiel only after falling out of favor with the public. For now, I’ll stop whining about indie music that came out three years ago. I close my eyes and tell myself to breathe. and be calm.
