Solipsism. My empire of dirt.nothing can stop me now
Most of the time I feel like a visiter here, on this planet. Out of place and homesick, wondering how I got here and how do I get back.
Inside/Outside (by RabbitRabbitRadio)
New RabbitRabbitRadio song (Carla Kihlstedt and Matthias Bossi, formerly of Sleepytime Gorilla Museum) latest song. Fucking LOVE it. The music is quirky and playful, but cleverly complex, even with its traditional Americana bluesy chorus juxtaposed with dropped beats and measures that seem to not only make the composition more interesting, but cut unnecessary fat from the standard waltz format, in respect to the vocal patterns.
Lyrically, my first thought was about how “cute” the portrait of the typical middle-class marriage was painted. Im pretty sure these two had an intention that was closer to making commentary on the roles that most people play in their suburban life style, all the while nature is living in a less-pampered world that is being eaten away by said urbanization - and the humans are going on, unaffected, “nuking the broccoli” and buying “redundant bananas.” ;p
Either way, I like it a lot. Its a damn fine song and the video is fun to watch. (Especially the group shot of them singing “laaa la laaa laaaaa…” part).
