“Follow me wherever we are going”

Song: Glacially
Artist: Asobi Seksu
Album: Hush

Whatever you say, Yuki. I was set on “Red Sea”…. then night fell and the air got a lot colder. The Hush takeover was a foregone conclusion. Precedence will be had many more times over the next few frigid months. It’s just too perfect for autumn and winter. That great little bass line there– cool, crisp, and pure as mountain spring– pretty much sealed it. Crystal, clear, and chilly (yes, I’ve used those adjectives before), yet far from sterile. It has the same heart that beats more warmly and brightly on their other albums, just hidden under a few layers of ice– or glaciers, if you will. I find it refreshing, playful even. Like running, jumping, and rolling through fields of snow.

If Wu-tang is for the children, then Asobi Seksu is for the kitties.
