Real Adult Things

It's time, I've done fired out some apps to some production companies in the hoes of becoming a responsible human being. It's pretty scary as the first step onto the professional creative ladder is likely to be but I'll survive. Here's some songs.

Pam Glew - Furs (2013)

You've probably come across a few tracks in my writing history that I says have taken time to grow on me. This one kinda fits that bill, it's a two parter hence he title, but while part 1 doesn't really do much for me, the transition into part 2 around 2:54 and everything after it is golden. It doesn't fit with the rest of the moody trip hop on the LP, but it's a nice change of pace for sure.

More Pretty Lights to go with today. Far from the summery vibes of July though. Coming from the more Hip Hop / Trip Hop side of the album (and frankly the better of the two) come Pop Quiz whose intro always makes me ting I've suddenly picked up some Spaghetti Western soundtracks along the way somehow.

And finally one of my all time favourte instrumentals from an EP that has had tons of play from me. It was my first exposure to Blockhead though I never knew until I checked the liner notes one day. It'd be a fitting end to the EP but it makes a lovely midpoint song as it is. Along with Daylight from the same EP it continues to be among my favourite instrumentals ever and will continue to do so until I find somethin' that scratches my itch better.
