Quicksails - SIlver Balloons in Clusters
(Deception Island, 2011)
I don't go in for a lot of the synth-based experimental stuff coming out lately. Or, rather, I have no real impulse to even listen to it. It's probably as good as anyone is saying it is, or something. (Are people saying it's good? What am I even talking about?) I get confused. And I'm am getting older. I mean, I'm almost 30. Pretty soon here you won't be able to trust anything I say. Wow...I'm almost 30. It feels like I shouldn't be writing a lame music/art blog if I'm going to be 30 years old. And I have a kid. I should have a job or something. Or something... I definitely shouldn't be awake at 3:30 AM posting blurbs for cassette tapes. Cassette tapes. People are still making cassette tapes and people are still listening to cassette tapes and I am almost 30 years old and I remember when I had my first cassette tape (Kris Kross) and I remember when Asaad Salleh made me a cassette with Snoop Dogg songs on it back when Snoop Dogg was Snoop Doggy Dog and how he was cussing a lot in the songs but he never cussed on MTV and I felt guilty about listening to him so I destroyed the tape by pulling out all the tape innards and my mom walked in and was way confused and said Why are you destroying that tape? and I said I didn't know. And now I listen to stuff like this. Weird stuff. Am I an adult?
