Drop Nineteens - Kick The Tragedy


[Spoken: Paula Kelley]
I think it was the first time I realized that I can change the world, or at least change the way my sister hit the clock on every tick just to see what happened. The time has really flown by I guess and it's hard to think of the way it might've been, or remember very specifically the words and all the rest of it. I was down, more than I'll ever be probably. That is what we do with it all together, like the orange trees in the backyard, and it's Easter, and it just won't end
Fucking Phil, he's off on his board somewhere and I'm just sitting here getting more and more lost with everything
And that was the thing about it, it's not as if a cousin promised something and taken it away. It was like nobody could share my so-called dreams, which really meant none of it was happening, and that reach around midnight left her with just about that, nothing. There's not anything particular about it either, and I think the whole thing gets vaguer every second, but I am too and there's nothing wrong with that
It's even funny when you stop to realize I'm just nineteen
And how serious can anything be anyway?
Not very


“Kick the Tragedy” plays like a lazy shoegaze, coasting on an easy wash of sculptural guitar drone, ethereal and melodic, tonally fluid, drifting in wavering oscillations of tempered feedback. It’s more akin to a simmer, than a full-on blast, with an almost innocent and naïve take on the wall of sound genre, which I’m guessing, probably gets a boost in the live performance. But since they’re no longer around, I guess we’ll never know. This one’s mostly a melancholic instrumental, with a brief spoken-word moment two thirds of the way through its nine minute sonorous meander. A female, maybe a teenager, laments her youth, echoing lonely and confused sentiments of adolescence … thoughts we’ve probably all felt in high school and college – except in this case, sans the social media and smart phones. - ROBWINFIELD via The Big Electric Cat
