Listening to the new kd lang album on my commute. So far: first two tracks so-so. Third track “Coming Home” is lovely.
The sort of thing she does so beautifully; languid and melodic and with lyrics like modern sculpture, which is to say that they serve not just as a representational carrier of narrative or idea, but that their sound, in and of itself, makes shapes and structures beyond the immediate intention, adding another level of beauty to the whole that’s not immediately obvious from an initial review of the individual components.
Now who sounds like they have a degree in cultural studies?
Fourth fifth tracks played while I typed that.
Sixth now playing. “Close your eyes,” is beautiful.
I think I like this album.
