Germano calls this album a lullaby, but it comes across like a journal of despair soaked in liquor. The album was written during a period of isolation, away from the business of music and without so much as a contract. She has her own peculiar method of constructing a song, toiling in solitude, trying unfamiliar instruments and equipment, putting together chords and lyrics, sound and production all at once. By combining differing elements within each song, she achieves an overall sense of improvisation.
The title track bluntly and poetically states the author's frame of mind: "I need a fix/A little one/And then it's over/Then I'm done." Yet despite the chronic sadness that permeates these songs, many of the lyrics offer more than a hint of hope. "To Dream" finishes the album with the words: "This is who you are/You don't have to run away."
Germano's recordings are an exercise in introspection, looking askance at her foibles and facing the dichotomies -- even if the vision is a little blurry.
*Christ, Lord sorry
"Punk" style like this seems like it is the polar opposite of punk. Bradford Cox…
They're kind of starting to look like a joke of themselves. Song's good though.
All 80s movies want you...
Their show with Chris, Lord about 3 years at the Unicorn was the best.
