Bringing Home the Freshest Kill

LYRICS:

Hope it isn’t broken, try to keep it open
But I couldn’t hold it, smashed it down for all to see
And I tried to get repairs done, I couldn’t fix it
So I picked it up and smashed it down for all to see

But I remember when we were so cool
And you were the only one
And now I know that I was such a fool
Thinking you’re the only one

(And now we are) We are high and we are fine
(And now we are) And we are gliding through the things that tear us apart
(And now we are) We are high and we are fine
(And now we are) And we are going to need the strength it takes to pave the way and be the first test pilot

Now we’re stumbling through the motions, criminal and careless
Thought you were my best friend, now I couldn’t care less, come to see
And you’re playing my emotions, way out of proportion
Damage and distortion, blasting through your fantasy

Oh, but I was such a fool
Thinking you’re the only one
It didn’t have to be so cruel
Thinking you’re the only one

I know that we get down
But we can’t touch the ground
Look up, fall into sky
Going at the speed of sound
One circle back around
Straight on, test pilot, fly

(And now we are) We are high and we are fine
(And now we are) And we are gliding through the things that tear us apart
(And now we are) We are high and we are fine
(And now we are) And we are going to need the strength it takes to pave the way

(And now we are) We are high and we are fine
(And now we are) And we are gliding through the things that tear us apart
(And now we are) We are high and we are fine
(And now we are) And we are going to need the strength it takes to pave the way and be the first test pilot

These gems comprised a good portion of my heavy rotation playlist in 2013. (In no particular order, though presented alphabetically here).

I also really liked the new Neko Case album.

And according to scientists somewhere, here are the 10 most relaxing songs from a study commissioned by a bubble bath and shower-gel outfit called Radox Spa.

TV on the Radio is a very interesting band that somehow managed to elude my radar the last few years.

This song/video of theirs is pretty effing amazing:

I discovered it via an excellent Touch and Go Records digital sampler last night and then proceeded to watch it about 10 times on YouTube. It has a Resisting-the-Violent-Indifference-of-Being quality to it.

Or maybe it just sounds like Peter Gabriel’s face being vacuumed by the Swans on DMT.

Regardless, it’s good.
