can’t get enough of this recording
haven’t geeked out on a jordaan mason recording this much since the unmastered mixes from divorce lawyers… went up on myspace forever ago my god………….ahhhh
killing me softly and what is my life who have i become
It’s so great to hear more Jordaan Mason (well apparently this is at least a couple years old but it’s new to me)
And now I feel like it’s 2009 and I’m sitting in a cafe outside the train station in Salamanca listening to those demos, learning a new language from them. New possibilities, new ways to talk about bodies..it really helped me sort myself out.
Downed powerlines by the side of the highway.
I am riding home to you with a secret in my mouth and an aching in my body from a feeling I’d forgotten, and there’s something in my mind I can’t hold onto for much longer…
Saw a hawk circling up above me, wild rabbits in the fields, foraging for dewey greens.
And the sounds of the highway harmonize with all the insects, and the melody they make is a sick and bitter grey.
And he said…
“Your magic is cheap and ineffectual,
your magic is like pearls before swine.
Your magic, it is trite and useless.
Your magic, it’ll cower before mine.”
I also wanted to say that I can’t conceive of this song and the next one on the album as being two separate songs. Presumably you can’t do a two-part audio post in tumblr, so here is part 2 right at your fingertips: http://twoforflinchingrecords.bandcamp.com/track/longing
This is also one that I play instruments on. I did so on a 90 degree day in a 90 degree apartment. Summer is such an abstract concept right now.
When I heard the news, I didn’t know what to say.
All the possibilities running through my head, I had thought of this day once before, or maybe twice.
Or maybe I had played it out one thousand times inside my mind.
But now that I’m faced with it, I can’t do anything at all.
And I thought of us last winter… or was it the winter before last?
I thought about your hands running up and down my body, thought about the questions that you asked.
Like, “can you really see us together” and, “could you promise not to tell?”
Never got a response to any of those letters, I suppose it’s just as well.
the saga ends….??! (Great song. It’s been stuck in my head for most of today)
I need Feminism because the theft of thousands of dollars private property shows respect for my fellow human beings.
OMG I know I say people should just go outside once in a while, but maybe these idiots should stick to complaining on tumblr if they’re going to do shit like this.
I really hope this is fake. If not, it makes that stupid ‘racist product’ sticker post from around halloween time look tame in comparison.
There’s really no way to steal from ‘The Man’ directly. Your efforts only impact low and mid-level staff. Yes, that includes Walmart. As it says in the article below, “We are not Sports Illustrated. We are a small business that’s just trying to make a living,”
Eight new recordings from Marco Polio, featuring the talents of Matt Hall, Shannon Stott, Peter House, Sam Egan, Justin Passino, Sarah Mundy and Kimberly LeClaire.
Cassette comes with hand screened artwork by Bryce B. of Drone Witch fame!
Check it out!
It was nice listening to this just now and hearing how it all came together. (I recorded my parts before a few other people did theirs)
Not to mention that it’s another great batch of songs from Matt
Centralia, PA. There are already three videos of me playing this, and another in the works. But on this version I was joined by Beka and Rafael of Eyeway fame!
We also did some Eyeway and Neutral Milk Hotel songs. When I get those videos I’ll post them
I’m so secondhand embarrassed for everyone involved in this public gay marriage thing during Macklesnore’s performance. Let’s just accessorize and objectify and use the queer community as an ego boost to straight saviorism, cool. Just make us a publicity spectacle again. At least have some damn self respect y’all could have gotten married to the “Drunk In Love” performance.
I’m placing an imaginary $10 bet that the majority of people reblogging this (plus OP) would have been all about this mass same-sex marriage if it happened at the grammy’s five years ago
