Music Moment: M83, ” Lower Your Eyelids To Die With The Sun”

31 Jan


A fairly large sense of relief tonight as i’ve now properly managed to clear my hypothetical IN-tray of assignments, and now i can truly say i’m now free to let my mind wander over the coming week. Aalso, in a surprise twist, after my friend Palli from Bakkus and myself tried in vain to argue with the police bureaucrats to get myself a security license (it’s a long story), whereupon we were told that they “Don’T give licenses to foreigners”, lo and behold i was called by them this morning stating that i now have a license ready and could i pick it up! Words fail me sometimes. Iceland, twinned with fucking Kafka!

So in a rather joyous mood, i think we should have some BIG emotional music. and i heard this track today being used in a rather spiffing Remastered skate video directed by Spike Jonze. And i haven’t heard “Lower your eyelids to die with the sun” for a couple of years now, but it seems perfectly apt. This is pure religious rapture/worlds collide/BBC wildlife programme writ large music. A very simple chord progression but dammit, it must be the sound of heaven breathing or something. AND WHY AM I SO HAPPY ALL OF A SUDDEN??? THIS IS NOT RIGHT!!!

Sigh. Goodnight…..
