All Over The Place: Music In My Head
I saw Sufjan in Oakland last week and the show was bananas. Fresh, ripe bananas. We're talking french horns, two drum sets, back up dancers, spaceships, etc. It was almost as good as the Black Keys show. Maybe just as good. I'm hesitant to compare the two, but I guess if both artists were foodstuffs, Sufjan would be bananas foster and the Black Keys would be fried chicken. I don't know where I'm going with this.
I never got into Animal Collective, but apparently, this band sounds like them. Also, I love projection light shows more than crisp October mornings.
This song is so Mumford and Son-ish in both sound and cheesy sentimentality, and it makes me feel nice. Also, real talk, I'm into the lady-man in this vid. She looks like Paul McCartney.
This is a dangerous song to listen to if you take public transportation, because you'll want to punch all of the smelly plebs invading your personal bubble right in their smelly mouths. Does no one brush in San Francisco? Have we moved beyond that social norm?
