148. DIY cover art / title project #2

Three new music-related goodies!

This time, featuring the Manic Street Preachers (my all-time favorite band), Godspeed You! Black Emperor (music to which I used to study, ahem) and Mark Kozelek (Sun Kil Moon) & Jimmy LaValle.

Postcards from a young Man, Manic Street Preachers.

Mystery and youth must surely collide,” the Manics sing in my favorite track off this album.

4 lift your skinny fists like antennas to heaven

Lift Yr. Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven, Godspeed You! Black Emperor.
Some of the best post-rock there is. Listen to the whole album here.

Somehow the Wonder of Life Prevails, Mark Kozelek & Jimmy LaValle. It's a poem set to music! No, it's a short story set to music! No, it's a whole novel in eleven minutes! Whatever it is, it's absolutely stunning, and you can listen to it here.

And simply because it would be a crime not to try and entice you even more to listen to Kozelek’s masterpiece, these are some of my favorite-ever lyrics of all-time in any-song.

And in the midst of all the agonies and hardness I felt,
somehow the wonder of life always prevails.
And in the midst of all the awkwardness, all my growing pains,
somehow the wonder of life always remains.
