So much new Muzak.
Volcano Choir- Justin Vernon's most recent release. I have their previous album, but this one definitely piques my interest.
I'd consider myself to have a mild case of synthesia. In my case, when I listen to music I see coloured shapes and forms that change and move depending on pitch and rhythm and speed. I think it's part of what makes music so moving for me. It's engrained in my brain to feel and see music in a way that makes it really powerful. This album hits my senses in all the right ways.
Tyler and I fell in love to Bon Iver. Many a rainy day spent in his tiny room with the For Emma, Forever Ago vinyl crackling away, becoming the soundtrack to the start of our lives evolving together in the same space.
Some music is like abstract art. It's sounds and rhythms and sometimes, often in Justin Vernon's case, unrecognizable forms of the human language that weave together in complex ways, building and falling, evoking the most guttural reactions in the listener.
I can definitely laugh and get on board with the "What the f is Justin Vernon saying?" bandwagon. But, with great speakers turned up loud the reverberating sounds of his projects will always please my ears.
Check it out. You won't regret it.
