Let the music heal.

In light of the slump I’ve been in recently, I’ve been listening to a lot of angsty and upbeat music. It helps sometimes, and I figured as a further therapeutic effort, I’d go ahead and share this with you. The concept, I admit, is a little primary, but I’m thinking along the lines of an Internet-style intervention.

So here are a few tunes I’ve been listening to a lot lately, in the first installment of a kind of loser anthems collection.

Kaddisfly – Heshvan: Clouds

This is perfectly indicitive of the kind of dark, brooding music that anyone needs when they’re hurting like this. It’s draining.

Senses Fail – Every Day Is A Struggle

“So much for the past year… I poured it down the drain with all the alcohol and pain I got from your eyes. Oh, your eyes…”

The Starting Line – Are You Alone

This is a bit of an exception; for the most part, any music reminding me of my situation or loneliness (City and Colour, Elliot Smith) has been hidden away with the knives. But this is a great song, and it does help a bit.

I hope everyone else out there that I love and care about is okay right now.

    Oooh, it looks like you need some more loneliness anthems. Here’s a few of my favourites:

    “Woke Up New” by The Mountain Goats

    “She Doesn’t Live Here Anymore” by Jay-Jay Johanson

    As always, mate, you have the most impeccable taste in music. Those songs are brilliant; they’re simply too perfect even to bring me down. Thanks.
