Okay, here’s another one that a friend introduced me to recently. I wish we weren’t such sleepy heads following the Japandroids show, or we could’ve seen them at Bonnaroo. (I literally couldn’t hold my head up anymore.) “Breezeblocks” by alt-j is in one word: funky. I mean, yeah it’s downright weird but it’s so good. So, so good. I mean, it’s not on repeat level with “Do I Wanna Know?” but it’s still up there. And according to who else I can see listening to it on Spotify, it’s got quite a big fan following. If you ask me, there are some references to Where the Wild Things Are, right? These are the lyrics that make me think that:
Please don’t go, please don’t go
I love you so, I love you so
Please break my heart
Please don’t go, I’ll eat you whole
I love you so, I love you so, I love you so
oh, and of course:
Do you know where the wild things go?
They go along to take your honey, la, la, la
I would just share their regular music video, but it kind of creeps me out a bit. (Sorry, I don’t normally skip stuff like this but ya know?) So, here’s a video of them playing live – woo!
