Here’s something totally not like anything else you’re going to hear today. Adele’s 25 is a masterpiece, yes, but in reality it’s the same shit over and over again. That’s not to say that I didn’t cop my copy of it from itunes just now, but music is becoming like Hollywood in the sense that all we get are recycled concepts of versions of past hits. Everyone is so afraid to go left that the world is following one another in a straight line going right, even if that line leads all of us to the edge of a cliff. Think about how many versions of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles the movie world has put out; the countless actors that have played Batman, The Joker, Spidey or the Man of Steel, and it’s exactly what we are being sold in music today. Broken hearts, empowered teenagers, shoot em up, bang! bang! bang.
In dire need of something completely out of this world, I came across this funky four minute and eighteen second instrumental title “To The Moon” by Sorbmal. I’m not gonna lie to you either, the artwork definitely helped me decide on this tune over another because it was so simple and non-cheesy; no big letters or “cool” fonts over it. Sometimes that’s all I want. Something simple. Something good to listen to or easy to stare at.
This little guitar ride flips so many times that it’s hard to pinpoint one specific genre for it. To me, it’s like listening to the RZA trying to come up with the Wu Tang Clan’s next smash hit single, here today, in the space age. It’s sort of like watching a Tarantino flick on fast forward, and I fucking dig the shit out of it. So, if you’re ready to listen to something funky on this Friday, then hit play and rock it. At the very least your ears will get a break from all the whining and heartbreak you’ll be listening to this weekend.
