50 Foot Wave
yesterday, i had a musical moment of clarity involving the band, 50 Foot Wave. for those of you who may not know, this band is fronted by Kristin Hersh, known for the Throwing Muses as well as her own solo work. anyway, i had bought the album when it was first released. i liked it, but i didn't love it. yesterday, that changed. i had it loaded up on my nano. walking to the train station after work, i wanted something aggressive and loud, so i clicked this album. listening this time, it was different. maybe it was my state of mind after a long day, and week, at work. i had caught up to where this album was. everything about it clicked with me and i was practically bouncing down the street. listen for the line where she kinda half-whispers, "i'm gonna wash that man right outta my hair" and then screams "and soap him into my eyes!"...man, that had me grinning a wicked grin.
clickety click, bitches:
