A blog about traveling, entertainment, and living outside the wall.
I have known the taste of the ocean, and the smell of forests,
and the cracks in hundreds of sidewalks. I have loved the adventures, and the airport concourse, and the always-changing time zones. In all of these places, I thought I could find a home in not having one; I have chased the sun across the sky so many times, not yet ready to admit, you never really catch up. #Travel #OneYear #FindItLiveIt 🌍🌊🈳
alt-J - Hunger Of The Pine
There is a moment about a minute and a half into alt-J’s lush and intricate new single, when the Miley Cyrus sample plays for the first time, and you can’t help but step back and appreciate the absurdity of it. It shouldn’t work, but of course it does, adding yet another layer to this strange bird of a song. Orchestral, eclectic, tense, and soft, ‘Hunger Of The Pine’ doesn’t come in like a wrecking ball, so much as a breath of fresh air.
