" some summer happenstance "


riding your bicycle home in the evening, the trees lining the inner looped roadway in the park creating the loveliest thoroughfare. warm winds caress your ears, face, neck, shoulders, and all the way down to the dimples of your ankles.

the doppler effect of feet meeting pavement as you float past runners slowly shifts into the brassy long tones of sung melancholy.

beautiful melodies counterpoised with slow steady deliberate music glide upon an errant gale, curls itself into the architecture of your ears, and nestles inside of your bones. the amplified sounds grow closer as you approach, the echoes of which reverberate throughout your skeleton and you feel all blue colors of the night.

peering through a gated fence, nothing can shut out the long reach of this music; it's lengthy slender fingers slipping through the braided diamonds, and holds the weight of your head in its comforting palms.

everything is stillness and invisible wavelengths. your heart goes electric and in that moment, you feel everything.


" heart cibo matto "


how amazing are cibo matto's miho hatori & yuka c. honda?! the absolute best!

calm and collected, they have fun in the face of all other pop star whiner attention whoring simple beat mediocre label-PR push BS drivel. fun!

beautiful beats, skilled musicians, singers, and all around performers. they really embody for me a crew that can flex and wane, bloom, flourish, duck down, take a decade-point-five to regroup, and still retain all of the flush and fervor that made you fall in love in the first place.

if you get the opportunity, peep their back catalog, solo work, and their supremely confident & gorgeously produced newest release. you'll feel so much better for it.
