The point is that working with one band full-time doesn't mean the other band doesn't exist. It just means you can't do two tours at once.

making a living as a musician is also Really Fucking Hard, so staying busy is kind of important

I have a ticket to Sylvan Esso AND Alt-J on Friday. I will probably sell my Alt-J ticket. Maybe on TWW.

I love this new track they wrote for an episode of Radiolab.


Here's a link to the full Radiolab episode:
http://www.radiolab.org/story/elements/

They wrote the song for a girl with bipolar named Jamie. The backstory is pretty neat. After hearing that story behind the song, I wanted to pay closer attention to the song lyrics. So here's my attempt at transcribing those, probably not perfect:

Quote :
"jamie’s song

it’s not me you’re talking to
gently dancing in my room
through the light beam arc
i’m all stops and starts
i’m all space and stars

i’m a brilliant machine
composed of softer beings (?)
compassion ache, scale bends and sways
another nova on the way

though the constant feels constant, i’m breaking up
the choices i make will all fade to dust
while the metal is shifting i’m waking up
i remember, i remember what i thought i was

it’s not me you’re watching move
slam dancing round my room
faster, faster til i bloom
keep on blooming, keep on blooming.
dragging me down though i keep moving
keep on blooming, keep on blooming.
dragging me down though i keep moving

though the constant is constant, i’m breaking up.
as i grow i’m so tired that i’m too beat to stop
while the metal is shifting, i’m breaking up
i remember, i remember what i thought i was

keep on blooming, keep on blooming (oh yeah)
dragging me down though i keep moving. "


I really dig the song, it's up there with my favorites from them.

I just listened to that today. i had never heard of them before but really liked that song. Remind me of LCD Soundsytem a bit (as someone who doesnt listen to much LCDS)

DIEYOUNG

But it's general admission and it's a big field in the middle of nowhere, so I don't think a sellout is an immediate worry.
