We live in a generation of, not being in love, and not being together
But we sure make it feel like we’re together
Because we’re scared to see each other with somebody else
Drake - Doing it Wrong
And if you say I’m not OK
We mus-t go
If you say there ain’t no way that i could know
If you say i aim too high from down below
Well, say you’re not ‘cause when i’m gone
You’ll be callin’ but i won’t be at the phone
Lykke Li - I’m Good I’m Gone
Port of Call - Beirut.
That beautiful moment when you fall in love with an album at first listen is the best feeling in the world. It’s like meeting someone and knowing you are going to spend the rest of your life with them, as if you two were meant to be by cosmic destiny. This is how felt when I first listened to Beirut’s recently released album, The Rip Tide. It ripped my heart out, tore me asunder, and made me anew. It showed me the true beauty of music, how each note is one step closer to enlightenment. I feel a connection with this album as though it is meant to be in the soundtrack of my life. Beirut has done it again, five magnificent albums in a row that continue to dazzle my heart and raise my spirits.
“And I called through the air that night, my thoughts were still buried inside.”
