If you know me, you know Thursdays are at once, my busiest days and also one of my favourite days. Why one of my favourites? Because I love that feeling of “next”. You know, like when you are next in line, next to the teller, next to the airline kiosk, next to get on the ride, etc. The pending event seems more real and the excitment and anticipation (yes, even with an airline kiosk) builds! So, what’s next? Well, Friday, of course!!!
BUT! At the same time, we try to live in the moment, don’t we? Try to focus on the now, even though the next is soooo close and right now is a new gem from Blonde Redhead called Penny Sparkle!
Okay, so what do we got with Penny Sparkle? Really, just lovely, subdued, ethereal, nether-worldly actually, ee-leck-tronical style music. At times, it sounds very familiar, like on “Black Guitar”… I SWEAR I’ve heard this on some 70’s “art film” I used to try to watch through a scrambled reception.
Actually, with that mindset in mind — ah, such a good mindset, donchathink? — suddenly, Penny Sparkle is taking on this modern-twist to that 70’s “art film” music, so so so critical to my development.
I like the album even more now!
