lo-fi musical cassettes.
this song, "my last days as an animal", it sounds to me exactly (to the letter) like summer, like some summer night that I never had, as a 12 year old, with the sun finally gone and the dusk kicking in hard, the heat finally burning off enough and the silhouettes of trees against the darkening sky. I have fallen into it now. That is to say I think it's really excellent. But also what I said, is what it is to say. Exactly that.
i enjoy getting to hear another's take on this music. and i do believe i know the nostalgic feeling you've described. or perhaps it's that i only know that feeling nostalgically, as it would escape a child. or perhaps all i am merely trying to recreate that feeling in all of these recordings.
