I can't breathe with you looking at me

[unknown + lina scheynius]

I honestly can't remember the last time an album immediately affected me like this one did. Basically sometimes things seem to spin off their axis and there are only a few things tying me to the earth at all and when the edges of my vision get blurry and I need something to hold on to, I'm holding tight to this.

Brisbane, do not miss Deerhunter along with Beach House, Blonde Redhead, Les Savy Fav, Menomena, Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti and many more at St. Jerome's Laneway Festival this summer.

Pop is pop is pop is pop is poop is pop

I think we've come across each other once before when you were taking off your shoes outside the swimming pool.

I want you bad underneath my skin

For the last two hours she'd been twisting paper clip after paper clip between her fingers until they broke, her palms and fingertips were red and damaged but she couldn't stop while trying to laugh and smile with her friends. By ten o'clock she let her shoulders drop with a sigh that he's not coming. A huge outward breath that was half relief and half bitter disappointment as she let her last paper clip drop to the floor . And of course that's the exact moment he walks through the door and she's caught unprepared like a deer in headlights. They make eye contact and she turns on her heel and walks straight out the back door and into the night.

You look okay, in every way

[unknown, turnedout, debbie harry (source/photographer unknown), simonon]

I spent an afternoon on your bedroom floor. I looked through your pathetic moleskine filled with quotes and drawings and laughed at your pictures, well worn paperbacks and ticket stubs that you keep, dirty mugs, a set list or two. I spent an afternoon on your bedroom floor.

It seems this game is simply never ending


The Strokes - The Modern Age

Like most mornings the driver's seat of the car is cold enough to produce a whole body shiver and the colour of the sky (grey, white) is not important and ignored. Turning over our conversations doesn't thrill me anymore and I'm suddenly scared stiff and have a horrible feeling that I've made a comment I can't take back and I've never been more aware of the cavity of my chest. I'm dazzled and frightened by you daily but in the interests of being an adult and having adult conversations and not not talking about anything that is remotely important---- Because mainly I'm just sick of waking up in the morning feeling like I was put together wrong.

Tip on the tightrope

Best fun I have ever had in a youtube video.

I could run away and leave you anytime


SO I've been catching up on the latest that's been happening in the 'blogosphere' after exams/portfolio/skiing/general disillusionment with music on the internets/trying to read a shit load more and what not and I'm glad I got back in the game in time to hear about these guys. They're just so cute, and I mean that in a totally non-patronising way, and totally deserving of all the hype. Great melodies, great voice, nostalgic instrumentation and this song has some great lyrical one liners that suck-a great blow above the relative softness of other elements of the song.

We'll sit and watch the sunrise and gaze into each other's eyes

[turned out and unknown]

Brilliant song! This girl has a voice that shines like it's made of gold or something. The guitars slide back and forth uselessly like a many loved and dog-earred paper back novel containing the same life as when it belonged to your dad when he was 16.
