Through this chapter in Tokyo, I’ve come to make one of Miley Cyrus’s biggest hits part of my life soundtrack. The line “we can’t stop, we won’t stop” crossed my mind so randomly right while I was staring through the window glass at the greenness of some trees filled with spring leaves being moved by a rather warm air today. It’s the uneasinness that surrounds my emotions what makes me strive for certainty but it is exactly what should get me going, the necessity of finding out what this unknowness is all about; it might be permanent, one thing will lead to other, but I’m just going to do my thang in the meantime. You should too.
It’s Miley, baby.
There you are, riding through the desert towards an unknown place with no plans, no one, nothing. You look for a sign in the dusty air, something that will tell you what to do and where to be now.
Keep riding that vehicle of yours, full of magical craziness and uniqueness, go places, don’t leave Earth just yet. Who knows? Maybe someday you will find that little spark that will light up your entire existence.
I don’t know when or how, but things do get better sometimes.
I saw Tops live last February with a dear frenger (not quite friends, not quite strangers) in Mexico City. I fell in love with Jane’s voice so much.
“Anything” is their newest song and I can’t stop listening to it. It’s got this mellow / sad vibe, it feels real.
“Show me your darkness”
“Have you ever felt like you would always be alone, like no matter what you do you’d always feel this…” “Inside there’s a real me”…”Is there even a real me?”
“Sensitive”, is the first track of the album, and it will take you to Sade, in a more gallactic yet less dramatic way. You will want to get in touch with your emotions and open up about stuff with Sensitive and Blush; “Rude Boy” , “In The House Of Yes” and “Out Of The Dark” you will put ya to dance being nothing else but your-real-self, including in this,”Medford”, where you’ll have a moment to think about who you really are, and what the fuck does it mean to be “yourself”. Then, in the end, you all you’ll want to do is merge with the sincerity of “Crime Scene”.
How would I describe this album? Gloomy, multifaceted and complex. The music and even Andrea’s voice are really on a new leve. It’s not that the Twin Sister wasn’t already great, but this album does definitely reflect a stronger personality as a band. Seems like Mr. Twin Sister really took some time in their lives to not only write new songs and create highly magical and experimental sounds but to also get to know more themselves as individuals and embody the experiences and feelings developed in that process.
It’s Thursday night, and god, what a week it has been…it has actually felt like 14 days long. Tired, confused and consumed by projects and books, all I am doing tonight is listen to this gem in my ridic pjs alone in my bedroom. It feels right.
