#58: are you happy being, or do you search for meaning?

Photo is from the trip we finally made, as we do annually, to the middle of nowhere. It was so much colder this year than it was last year or the one before – it seems like New England just jumped for fall ASAP. Considering the weather elsewhere, I feel like a chode for complaining, but still, holy crap, it got chilly quick.

On the show this week, I wanted to try to find some common ground between the shoegaze/goth worlds, which definitely exists, but wanted to toss some garage in there as well. I have to admit I never noticed the clear sonic parallels between The Raveonettes and A Place to Bury Strangers until putting them next to each other here, but yeah, there’s this subspecies of garage/lo-fi that has a real dark edge to it (I would put Warm Drag in that bucket as well). All of this stuff feels very Octobery to me.

Go get your boosters, friends. I got mine and I’m feeling kinda wonky, but let’s feel a little wonky together.
