So I've got the internet now, and I'm itching to get back into the loop. Love it and hate it, that loop.
Anyhow, I'm loving the new High Places self titled album. Simply loving it. I think this, along with edamame, might just get me through this final month of thesis, before I enter the uncertainty and excitement of THE REST OF MY LIFE. A life which has, recently, become even more uncertain (and hopefully, hopefully exciting)... but more on that later.
So, the band: wistful, dreamscapey, lush but surprising. Amazing beats, ethereal vocals, sounds akin to hummingbirds' wings batting in slow motion, twitters and twangs, scratches and squeaks, rattles and pops, and fantastical, dreamy lyrics. Utterly gorgeous.
