I recently had the rather awkward conversation with my current love about our last loves. He did not see the reasoning for wanting to know more about them as what is in the past and gone. Understandable. Being a girl and also not trying to be a crazy girl, I was trying to explain that you just want to know. What did they do wrong? What was the breaking point? In the very least, it is also sort of a boost as you get to sit back and think “What an brat, I would have never done that!”. But really at the end of this talk, you realize there is a sense of vulnerability there when you share what caused the last heart break. Scratching at your scars. I suppose it is because currently, I only know this person from the moment we met. Literally, the moment we met, it was obvious and there was no ‘before’ after we met. We didn’t know anyone in the eachothers lives, we didn’t know anything about where the person came from. Which is fun and also scary. You move based on the feeling that you should be with this person. The before no longer matters at it never existed. You have the now and the later. Honestly, I think I just wanted to be involved. I wanted to be there when he got to go through those past few years. I wanted to see what he did. But I guess that is more drive for wanting to be more together in the future. And I guess it doesn’t matter much anyways. I guess you go blindly.
Grizzly Bear may not be what you would normally have heard with some EDM twang, it is much appreciated in this rework put out by the band and the producer.
Although not too surprising to see the likes of Diplo working with the Brooklyn-based band, it is a treat to hear his rework adding in layers of base and his signature styles.
Grizzly Bear is one of my favorite musical additional to the past few years, but still a rather young group. The music they produce reads like poetry and drives their song and message in to your mind and body. Observe:
“I don’t wanna be, I don’t wanna know the lies
Shouldn’t ever be what it was alright
I’ll choose to believe what’s right
Even if in the end I’m blind
I don’t wanna be, I don’t wanna know the lies
Couldn’t ever be what it was, alright?.
Even if we send
Everything from both ends
So little left to, say, do, it depends
If we are past what we keep
All that was promised that was sheathed.”
