serendipity and ouroboros, new member

the soundtrack to this blogpost will be interpol. they just feel good to me, have an aural sensibility that makes me feel, which is difficult for music to do sometimes. i know they’re not that indie anymore, but whatever. the chords and waves of their music can keep rushing over me, and i’ll always be [...]

the ex, missing limbs, asian am women

for various reasons, the soundtrack to this blogpost will be a selection of songs on a quicklist that i created in itunes on repeat. the first is the decemberists ‘the engine driver’. i love the decemberists, i think they’re poetry set to music. the emotionality of their work paints vividly felt, but subtly shaded sentiments.

chicken and beer, beauty queens and UMass Amherst show recap

the soundtrack to this blog will be… crystal castles. they are the darlings of the indie rock scene now for a variety of reasons, partially just because they are weird as hell. but at the same time, their sound appeals to me, because there’s so much going on… and you can’t tell me its frenetic [...]

love, ruminations and all things emo. oh and DHK got robbed.

before anything i will once again shamelessly plug my myspace music. so go to it. with Singles Awareness Day coming up (when is Valentine’s day anyway?), the fact that i’ve been writing entirely too many love poems recently (ask to see them, they’re awful, but worth a laugh or two), and the fact that i’ve [...]
