A bird has a left wing and a right wing but they’re just for flapping. The bird brain is in the middle.

Purple Mountains



How come MB seems to be sleeping on this one?
Unfortunately I discovered this album only after I heard of Berman's suicide, which makes me ask myself how much the tragic backstory makes it stand out to me.
The lyrics certainly are pretty damn devastating in light of his death. He sings about alienation, depression, the death of his mother and the collapse of his marriage. All in a dry and matter-of-fact way, often with some wicked dark humour. The death wish is scarilly obvious here.
But the music holds up perfectly by itself. One or two tracks are a bit weak (Snow Is Falling In Manhattan, for example) but overall it's very cool and often groovy, at times sad and beautiful, at times with a nice contrast between the bleak lyrics and the upbeat music. What a farewell! RIP

Savages - Life in the Wild Garden

he produced my favorite electronic album "Five Finger Discount"

back in July with the first album in 5 years

this one has heavy use of field recordings and jazz samples, so it's different for me, but I'm indeed digging it

Nah.
Lambchop vocals are corny af.
Also the upbeat songs on Purple Mountaisn are so ****ing nice and groovy.
Also: Lyrics. I mean, **** lyrics in general, but in the case of Purple Mountains they are so ****ing important.

It's alright.
Not his best, not his worst. Pretty enjoyable, actually.
I wish he released a really good and consistent album at some point.
