“You are getting so beautiful they will have to make passport pictures of you 9 feet tall. What do you really want to do for a life work? Break everybody’s heart for a dime? You could always break mine for a nickel and I’d bring the nickel.”
— Ernest Hemingway to Marlene Dietrich (via smut-to-go)

While not exactly summer-fun-time music, Perfume Genius’ Learning is too good to save for the fall. It’s sad, has a compelling-if-true back story, a sound aesthetic similar to CocoRosie or early Casiotone For The Painfully Alone, and intimacy like swany Sufjan. I should probably be playing Jock Jams Vol. 1 at a one to one ratio to keep my mood in check.

Goodnight Sweet Prince…
According to Chris Mannix at SI, Rasheed Wallace has retired. I leave you with this…
When Rasheed Wallace and his friends get drunk, he takes off his buddy’s prosthetic leg and throws it around. He once tried to stuff his friend’s fake leg into a mailbox.

In late March I listened to ‘Arkansas’ from Damien Jurado’s newest LP, St. Bartlett, on repeat for the duration of a lonely train ride from Chicago to Milwaukee. This song will stick with me. Here Jurado combines hopeful sound with hopeless sentiment. Instead of a fully drawn narrative the lyrics read like a response letter, where heartache is amplified instead of diluted by the lack of detail.
“…I never feel magic unless I am with you.”
Damien Jurado - Arkansas
Five years ago CocoRosie covered one Jurado’s finest songs into a telephone answering machine.
