If you remember how much easier it is to remember what you would rather forget than remember, than remember what you would rather remember than forget, then you can’t forget how much easier it is to forget what you would rather remember than forget, than forget what you would rather forget than remember.
Elmira Gazette, quoted in New York Times, Feb. 13, 1891

I have been procrastinating a lot lately and i have to admit, Today’s songs are long overdue.Both songs are similar to songs in John Lennon’s Plastic Ono Band album with regards to the pure intimacy between the artist and listener.

Cecile has once again transformed an indie song into an epic abyss of pure emotion. Like the subconscious, White Sky isn’t afraid to be many things at once. Different sounds fade in and out. A tropical melody transform into dark and mysterious yearnings without any warnings.

Caribou’s very intimate and fragile “Jamelia” is also his hidden magnus opus in his latest album “Swim”. Jamelia sounds like melancholic panic attacks within subconscious of a hopeless romantic.
