New Particles hand-snatched from the tube of the Large Genre Collider for the week ending 2017-03-17. This is what I am listening to in the universe where I have time to listen to all of this and still everything else.
||"Fall to Depravity"
||Part of Ulsect are also in Dodecahedron. In the future, everyone will be in 15 metal bands at once.|
||Italian metal doesn't have to be pretty.|
||"Of the Key and Crossed Bones"
||Symphonic black metal can be time-smeared on an event horizon.|
||"Vision III: A Monument"
||Wormholes connect all the midnights of all the planet's black-metal forests,|
||"I Wish the Dawn Would Never Come"
||and all of their soaring lightless skies,|
||but you can still make somber, bounding rock music in the dim glow of your amplifier LEDs.|
||Last Leaf Down
||I don't know if you get here from metal by losing vehemence or gaining diffidence,|
||"Drown Us With Greatness"
||but you can get back with force.|
||Things I've Never Said (Deluxe)
||What it takes to walk a ridge in armor isn't fundamentally different from what it takes to walk a quiet line in your own self-belief,|
||Bright Light Bright Light
||"Causing a Commotion"
||but without the armor you preserve more of the element of surprise.|
||"Unfold the Mystery"
||Metal, arguably, contends that surprise is a cheat.|
||Supposedly we used to consider jousting a sport,|
||"This Is Where the Heart Break Begins"
||but maybe this was only ever an excuse for sunlight gleaming on polished chrome,|
||and now we have fabrics that can do that against bare skin,|
||"Up All Night"
||and special lights that can do it in mid-air.|
||The Bunny The Bear
||The Way We Rust
||We have the technology now to virtualize emotion.|
||For The Win
||Maybe we always did,|
||Sinners Are Winners
||"Reap What You Sow"
||and it's just that self-awareness has pealed a protective layer off of our accountability.|
||But aren't revealed layers inherently beautiful?|
||"A Long And Happy Life"
||Isn't that why we return obsessively to the same points of pain and joy?|
||"What About Me"
||Isn't that we keep trying to build higher towers?|
||Kobra And The Lotus
||"You Don't Know"
||Maybe the next spire will pierce whatever shell has kept us here,|
||and release us into a viridian expanse|
||"Into the Blue"
||governed by less-intransignent principles,|
||"Streets of Rage"
||and fewer relentless recursions.|
||But the grand purpose of dreaming is not to find a simpler reality,|
||"In the clinches"
||any more than the appeal of nostalgia is its pragmatic applicability to the present.|
||"Wawa by the Ocean"
||We dream to add magic, not elide complexity.|
||"To the Well"
||There Is Only Now
||We dream to reward complication, not avoid it.|
||"The Fight for Freedom"
||Epic Sci Fi: Fate of the Earth
||The difference between escapism and oblique strategy is only conclusively determined in retrospect.|
||"I've Got You Under My Skin (Epic Trailer Version) [feat. Blu Holliday]"
||Some obviously terrible ideas will turn out to be merely counter-intuitive,|
||and maybe the most exciting thing about intuition is its fallibility.|
||"Raw (feat. The8BitDrummer )"
||Or speed. Maybe the most exciting thing about intuition is that it can take you somewhere else without having to trudge across every bit of the intervening terrain.|
||"Out of My League"
||Maybe this is also the most exciting thing about nostalgia|
||"End It Now"
||or whatever you call it when they fuse.|
||What would you do with the power to teleport? You have that power.|
||Zap. You are in an empty chapel vestibule in the Swedish countryside.|
||Zap. You are on a Pacific cliffside with warm updrafts trying to lift you into a cloudless sky.|
||Zap. The distance between Sweden and Mexico is erased, is meaningless, is no grounds for policy or hestitation.|
||Zap. We already have every superpower we've ever claimed as an excuse.|
||himekyun fruits kan
||Nouten Drop -Present for Himekyun-
||Put on the costume you'd wear.|
||Dance like the air exists to accomodate your movements.|
||What else was it going to do?|
||"Es gibt dich nicht"
||Supernova (Deluxe Edition)
||It spent a billion interminable years waiting to have this chance.|
||The rocks have spent every one of their collected aeons trying to invoke alchemists who could transmute sediment into sentiment,|
||and we, in all our fragility and helplessness and incomprehension, are them.|
||"Io ti maledico"
||The rocks don't look at us and see our flaws, they look at us and see the impossible brought alive.|
||This is how we have to learn to see ourselves,|
||The Swon Brothers
||"Pretty Cool Scars"
||Pretty Cool Scars
||and music is a thing we have invented|
||The Moon & The Nightspirit
||"A Hajnal Köszöntése"
||for magical reflection.|
||Shaping the Soul
||Anthems are stories of who we are.|
||Folk anthems are stories of who we have always been.|
||Heptaedium Versus Cartoon Theory
||Robot deconstructions are stories of how we could have been assembled.|
||Anything you don't understand is potentially a story of a different way.|
||Mortem & Makeup
||What do you allow yourself to hear?|
||What do you sing that only you will initially understand?|
||Narcissism is the enemy of progress because self-consciousness is the antithesis of contribution.|
||Violence is inherent nihilism.|
||"Görev İcabı (Radio Edit)"
||Dancing is the opposite of fighting.|
||Today, take an energy you were going to apply to fighting something you know, and spend it dancing to something you don't know.|
||Don't figure out why first. Dance first, figure out why later.|
||Nostalgia can be a solvent for fears.|
||"Quitters Don't Smoke"
||The strange things you collect, if you explore, become not just things you have once done, but elements of what you know to be possible.|
||Music doesn't render evil impossible, but it builds up what you find underneath an evil when it's gone.|
||This is why we resist.|
||Vi Kommer Dö Men Först Ska Vi Leva
||This is probably why evil has survived evolution.|
||This is why we run towards the things which threaten us.|
||Vieux Farka Touré
||This is why should allow ourselves to be drawn towards deserts|
||"Erres Hin Atouan"
||or oases, whichever we didn't grow up in.|
||What we don't turn away from, we can absorb.|
||"Fell For You"
||This is why immigration is not a regional policy issue, but a human-emotional imperative.|
||"LA Devotee - Acapella"
||This is why tolerance is a minimal precondition for humanity,|
||Glimmer Remix - EP
||not a special interest.|
||Rebel and a Basketcase
||We are the changes that you fear. We have been all the changes you once feared that now seem like how it was when it was great.|
||"Jalel Brick Rrumi"
||Klabb - EP
||We are the mesmerizing inextricability of curiosity and survival,|
||and you have, every moment, a new terrifying incomprehensible opportunity to choose life.|
