Turn volume up, please.
[Stay Where You Are, by Sleater-Kinney]
I’m usually listening to a lot of newer music, sifting through softer melodies and sounds and rhythms to share. But this past weekend I caught Sound Opinions’ Riot Grrrl retrospective, and was literally overcome (think: paralyzed) with nostalgia, and appreciation for music and attitude and energy I haven’t thought about in years. Like, a lot of years.
Am susceptible right now, to thinking back while thinking forward and stumbling into buried emotion… life’s about to change for good. For very good. But I _did_ dig out my Bikini Kill, Huggy Bear, Excuse 17, Bratmobile, Heavens to Besty, and Sleater-Kinney records… and have been listening to them ever since.
You can probably find used copies of these records/cds at your local rrrecord shop. Do not delay!
