Song Three Comforting Moments, Brought to You by My iPod’s Random Shuffle
posted by February 27 at 16:50 PMon
Jawbreaker - “West Bay Invitational”
The whole song, sure, but especially the moment at the 2:54 mark, when the bridge, “We hung our clothes up on the floor/and put our faith in a closed door” breaks into a nervous, first-kiss guitar riff. (File under: nostalgia, long distance crushes, mix tape gold, house parties.
Milemarker - “Ant Architect”
“Allergic to the hive / The hive is giving him hives” (repeat).
Pavement - “Silence Kit”
Is there any opening more obliquely hopeful than the phrase “Silent kit / No one to remind you” and the fried, lazy afternoon guitar that accompanies it? Probably, but not on my walk home.
