    Betrayed isn't really the right word, but when James Blake pivoted away from the the "dubstep" he was making before his first album and started singing on tracks, the emotion I felt was not a welcome one at all.

    I don't think it has anything to do with the past 8 (?) years of our culture kind of congealing around what he was doing in that moment (there's a lot of James Blake-esque music out there atm that I don't care for at all), but I finally think I get it or at least recognize that I was really misunderstanding what he was doing on "The Wilhelm Scream" or "Limit to Your Love." Dismissing this stuff as I did was a foolish judgement.

    I suppose it helps to step back from how quickly I was absorbing and assessing music back then. It feels good to have distance from that and be removed from the hype, although no one would ever admit being caught up in anything like it today. That was something other people were doing, but never me, etc.

    I don't have a point to this other than wishing to acknowledge that I never thought I'd come back to this stuff or have a reason to but now it's feeling deeper and stranger than I ever understood it to be or had the capacity to imagine at the time.

    That's a post that I didn't expect to be reading in 2018. I actually revisited that self-titled album a few months back and was really surprised by how well it has held up. I had a similar reaction to you at the time and I eventually lost interest in him and stopped listening to any of his music after that first album, but it's a really well done and surprisingly soulful album.

    I've had a similar experience with Beach House's Teen Dream. I remember listening to it a quite a bit when that album first came out and I liked it but it never seemed like something that would leave a lasting impression. But I went on a lot of long walks this summer listening to that album and I think it retrospectively stands out as one of the strongest albums released during that period of time.

    Undo, that's how I felt about revisiting Charlie XCX in 2018.

    Distance helps with lots of things. I feel like my true appreciation for music and my own independent "taste" is strong than ever now that I've dropped out of the critical landscape for the most part.

    I’ve been listening to The Chameleons’ Script of The Bridge everyday this month and I can’t get over how good it is.

    Sir Douglas Quintet | Mendocino

    I'd never heard this until a few days ago, but I can't get enough of it. Sorta reminds me of The Dead, The Band, The Flying Burrito Brothers. I feel like Reuben or Zappo could get down with this. Or anybody, really, just thought of them for whatever reason.
