my final paper for my analysis of popular music class will be titled:
Finding Meaning in Godspeed You! Black Emperor
's Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven
what I want to do is find the ways, both through the music and other means (packaging, field recordings, interviews (or lack thereof), etc.) that this group makes such an impact as a politically fueled band without lyrics and such. should be fun.
top five artists/albums/pieces i'm listening to right now:
discovering "the world is yours" for the first time was an incredible revelation
4. John Mayer Trio
i was surprised at how good this was...finally john gets a chance to show that he's quite the musician. it's a kicking band and a great live performance too.
- any and all
just amazing, as always.
2. Deathcab For Cutie
another shocker...i think this album is a little too long and a little thick but i've still come back to it a few times
