one of my favorite things about live music is watching a band before they become massive— their tentativeness, their awkwardness when it comes to stage banter, the way they’re afraid to let loose. chvrches is going to be major, i can sense it; and i’m happy to have caught them at this period of their career.
been listening to two very beloved albums from the 00s on their tenth anniversary: Interpol’s Turn on The Bright Lights and Pretty Girls Make Graves’ Good Health. I’m surprised at how well they’ve held up; like you could say they were new releases and no one would question you. That wouldn’t have been the case if Ten had been released in 2002.
Also, I miss rock music. Like music that actually rocked.
