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?
