I'm one of those people who find joy in seeking meaning where there might be none. I find it part of art — the act of observing is as important as the act of creation itself.
Thom Yorke - "Dawn Chorus"
Simply an amazing song. Three simple monophonic synthesizers panned in stereo, some delicated padding here and there, and Thom’s voice telling a complex story. Here’s what I think about it.
Bon Iver - "Beth/Rest"
This is one of my favorite songs of all time. It beautifully covers love in a long-term relationship, which is much more complex than the initial infatuation. It also uses some famous 1980s timbres and techniques for a really timeless feel. I prefer the album version over the later autotune-heavy renditions from concerts. What follows is my interpretation of the lyrics.
