I've spent the last 4 hours dealing with this weirdly intense anxiety, mostly related to Stereofox actually.
There's a lot going on and a lot I would like to happen, but I just can't put my head into it sometimes. It just feels overwhelming and there's always so much to do. So much I want to do and it never feels good enough... so in times like this I just shut down, unable to channel a single thought through my head. Then I heard this Philanthrope / Psalm Trees track and it all felt a little bit better.
"Amore com Delore" is taken off their joint album Birds of a Feather which was released a few weeks ago. While I do speak a little bit of Spanish, I didn't even think about the meaning of the title (which is in Italian, but still - pretty similar) ... and then I realized how much it actually resonates with the feelings I've been experiencing. I love this project to death, but sometimes it brings me a lot of internal pain and discomfort. It's weird. I guess tracks like this one are a good reason to stay positive.It is funny to think 2 guys from the opposite sides of the world (Austria and South Africa) bonded and managed to create such a beautiful sound. This piano-driven lofi beat is so elevating... I loved this quote from their bandcamp.
Birds of a feather, flock together. It is a very old saying; It means that people with the same interests 'move' the same way. Fate, to some, is but a mere theory human beings adopt to try and make sense of the world around them. To others it is something solidified in the belief of serendipity, luck or good fortune if you will. Whatever the listeners personal concept of the term, the results of two musical minds from foreign lands meeting by accident is something I find difficult to believe happened by chance.
