In the purest and most honest of moments we have ever shared, he informed me he would do it by the way of Hemingway, yet his own interpretation. And in that moment I understood something unspoken between us that no one else on this Earth would ever understand. And I never felt more loved in my entire existence.
I may have pissed him off and disappointed him time and time again, because I never lived my life like he wanted for me, he said. But I always marched to the beat of my own drum, and that’s what he did, and he and I know I am my father’s daughter.
For all you Boise kids who have yet to hear this band, give them a listen. They will be playing the Promenade Music Festival (more on this in an upcoming post) via Neurolux on October 7 with Surfer Blood. DO NOT MISS THIS SHOW. There are a billion other bands to see during the festival, but if you don’t see The Drums, you will be sorry.
Other noteworthy bands coming through town to the Lux in the next few months that I am excited about:
09/01 Dum Dum Girls 09/10 David Bazan 09/22 Rev Peyton’s Big Damn Band 09/23 Starfucker 09/24 Japandroids, PS I Love You and Makeout Video
10/02 Melvins 10/05 El Ten Eleven and BATHS!! 10/16 Menomena
11/20 Margot and the Nuclear So and So’s
Plus some others here and there I am sure I will roll over to. I love this touring time of year! I sure like keeping busy.
kicking off thursday with a houses/teen daze collaboration. this will inevitably make your day more chill. head bobbing at my desk as i type. and how can you resist any song called, “bikes”? those happen to be one of my most favoritest things in the world right now. it all sums up to a recipe for success.
I’m pretty sure I saw a few other reblogs of this song, but it is most definitely worthy. Everyone is yapping about Teen Daze - for me it was love at first listen really. So many cool things going on in music right now - new sounds, everything so dreamy. Reminds me of my favorite youthful memories set to music.
Buuuuuuut….. I’m still a rock and roll purist at heart.
The new 7″ single from Mississippi’s Dent May is almost here, and if y’all thought the A-sidewas good, get a load of the silky smooth “disco-funk jammer” “Eastover Wives,” featuring Charles Roy Washington on sax. Arguably the best thing Dent’s ever done. That Feeling/Eastover Wives…
Dent May has been to Boise several times and each time I take a gaggle of folks to dance their blues away to this strapping young gentleman’s clever lyrics and infectious melodies. Hopefully with this new release he will head back my way and I can challenge him once again to a dance off. Last time he had the flu, this time no excuses!!
Enjoy the new tunes! They sure brightened up my cold-medicine ballon-headed sickie cough day!!
This song remains in my Top Ten songs of all time. Big thing to say, seeing it joins the ranks of Crimson and Clover and Whiter Shade of Pale, but there is just something about that melody that kills it for me. Takes me to far away places, soaring in the sky -opens my heart and this song just pours right out of it in crashing waves. The intensity this song builds is simply undeniable.
I admire that Doves is a huge band but they aren’t in your face wherever you go. They keep it pretty low-key, and continue to put out quality tunes that take your emotions for quite a ride.
The internets blessed me today with this beauty of a track from Virginia Beach. I almost swore this was Daniel Rossen (Grizzly Bear, Department of Eagles) singing. Stunning songwriting, great production. I love it.
Now that I’m thirty, and I’m unmarried, it is ok to have a dachshund calendar. And magnets. And earrings. And pillowcases. As long as no one sees them, they don’t exist.
Now that I’m thirty, all those “investments for my future” can finally just be called “shoes.”
Now that I’m thirty, it is ok to admit I check out cookbooks just to look at the pictures. Admit it, you do it too.
Now that I’m thirty, sleeping in late is an affordable luxury. Screw reading the newspaper with coffee at 8am. Who would seriously rather do that than toss around in blanket heaven for just a little bit longer? I’ll wake up early when I’m forty.
Now that I’m thirty, all those expensive beauty products I bought solely based on packaging are a write off, because now I actually have to start using them.
Now that I’m thirty, I can curse teenagers and their driving out loud and people agree, not think I’m too young to be doing so.
Now that I’m thirty, zits are ok occasionally - it is a reminder of my youth. Ok, that is a total lie. Thirty and zits? Come on, there has to be a point where it stops!!
Now that I’m thirty, I realize nobody is truly cool. Nobody.
Hey, Kymm? What did you do today? Oh, well I just discovered a little thing called WOOKIEEPDIA while I was supposed to be re-vamping my resume. Wonder if I added Jedi Mind Control as a skill it would make me more appealing??
