i have a tendency to listen to songs on repeat. i’m not talking a few times a day, or even a set of songs over and over. i am talking about one song, on repeat, for eight hours while i’m at work, for the course of a run, while i’m falling asleep at night.
i hear it, it gets in my head, and i don’t get tired of it. it goes on loop repetitively, until my neighbors and friends want to tear their hair out (i’m guessing, on the latter).
here are some of the songs that have received the top honor of being consistently on repeat:
summertime sadness (mk lee foss cold blooded remix) – lana del rey
i know i’ve mentioned the names xiu xiu and david horvitz on here before. and anyone who knows me even a little bit knows how much i like them both. but ANYWAY. on the past xiu xiu tour david horvitz did a disposable camera project, which i participated in. the film was returned and developed speedily and i have (somewhat speedily) posted all the photos on flickr. so take a look, if you are so inclined! i am particularly fond of the before-and-after meal shots:
i’ve never done a music post before. i usually leave that to my friend michael.
postcoitus, however, has remained one of my favorite bands for over a year now and so they deserve mention. staying power says a lot. i first heard them play live at a co-op party, complete with light show and neon short-shorts. i downloaded a couple songs from their myspace page and was hooked, so i ordered their cd online. it took a while to get to me, but it was worth the wait.
i arrived home one day to find a taped manila envelope that looked like this: that contained a note to me, 4 free buttons, and the cd itself.
they’ve been m.i.a for some time now, but their song 12,000 secretaries alone is enough to keep me entertained. it is good from the start but becomes the best at 2:07. enjoy, and–vote yes for dancing!
