|helo this is what i liked most in 2017|
Goodbye + Goodnight
cloud rap for a rainy day
|2||The Body and Full Of Hell|
Ascending a Mountain of Heavy Light
descending a chasm of crepuscular darkness
1, 2, 3, 4; pleasure is both dense and raw
The Night Is Dark...
trampled by a horde of grandfather clocks
How Are You?
lo-fi hip hop?
self-love as communicated in whispers
|6||Godspeed You! Black Emperor|
not reinventing the wheel but they don't have to when they're the ones that gave the wheel its momentum in the first place

finding shade under the magnolia tree

post-tentious, self-assured, verbose but not without substance, poetic, and WHERE THE GODDAMN SHIT IS MY REPLY RORY I WANT 2 WRITE 4 U
