…And They Have Escaped The Weight of Darkness

June 14, 2010

Those of you who are more musically conscious (or, like me, follow Metacritic’s and Pitchfork’s reviews religiously) may recognize today’s post title as the name of Olafur Arnalds’ new album, which I mentioned the other day. It’s billed as Classic/Rock on Metacritic – let me dissillusion y’all about that right now. This is classical + drum beats in something like 3 of the 9 songs. Don’t get me wrong, it’s great music, transcendent one might say. But it’s not rock.

My title is also referential to the fact that SCHOOL IS OVER FUCK YEAH. 100 or so days of freedom! SUMMER! YES! Y’all know what I mean.

At Night We Live by Far, which is on today’s playlist, has the saddest music video of all time. ALL TIME.  PERIOD. Go watch it…or don’t, if you’re easily upset.

Here’s today’s playlist

  1. Dead! by My Chemical Romance
  2. War by Sick Puppies
  3. We Were Sick by The Thermals
  4. Ativan Eyes by Ted Leo and the Pharmacists
  5. The River by Good Charlotte
  6. What’s It Feel Like to Be a Ghost? by Taking Back Sunday
  7. Angels With Dirty Faces by Sum 41
  8. Ashtray Heart by Placebo
  9. Pardon Me by Incubus
  10. At Night We Live by Far
