Tahoe, Super Bowl… too much excitement. Musical rest.
Today’s Indie: I Love You But I Don’t Know What to Say / Ryan Adams
‘we belong here / we belong here / ain’t nobody that can tell us we’re wrong’
Starbucks has reminded me there is another holiday season upon us with their pink and red heart covered cups, so I will indulge my gooey side and share something soft and fuzzy. Ryan Adams has had a pretty gritty past with some pretty gritty songs to back it up, so a track like ILYBIDKWTS coming from him gives it all the more sway. My favorite Ryan song to date involves him telling his girl to come pick him up, take him out, fuck him up, steal all his records, and sleep with all his friends. Serenading that he promises to love someone for the rest of his days is a serious departure, put lightly. I guess marrying a former pop princess can have that affect on people.
It is a wonderful problem to have–loving someone so much you can’t put it into words. This track is off Ryan’s album from last fall, Ashes & Fire. Sappy, beautiful. #indie
Today’s Untz: Where I’m Going / Cut Copy
‘take my hand if you know what I’m going through’
We were driving 4+ hours to and from from Tahoe this weekend, and this Cut Copy song came on among dozens of songs, and it was remarkable. Thanks Messer for putting it on the album you made for Dave and Caro. Thanks Dave and Caro for hosting us in your magical ski lease. EOM. #untz
