The Sea and Cake
Thrill Jockey

When my bangs were longer , I grew them past my eyebrows and looked up at people through them when they talked to me. I shook my head a lot then, loving the feel and the weight of my shag.

It's been pretty short for awhile. Almost as long as I've been waiting for this.

Now these are the sounds that make me want to grow it out again.
Vibraphone. Strings. Piano. A quiet jazz guitar.
And that stillness in Prekop's voice.
It sounds like the wind blowing my old hair across my face.

Go and find this record. And hide the clippers.
