I Love You All This Much

I miss the 90s indie royal consorts.

Much to share later this afternoon, but first I have to go make some overdue contributions to The Other 50 Tracks. There's a lot to read there, and Keith hasn't even posted my first veto yet! (You should get to see that tomorrow - to my intense satisfaction, I got to be the one to squelch the Barenaked Ladies.)

Who's going to hear Harmony Korine talk tonight? Looks like I won't make it, but I'm going to try to watch the webcast, and then I'm going to see Fred Loberg-Holm et al at Arraymusic. As a warmup for Mondo Korine, someone on 20hz steered me towards Montreal's The Letlowns, who offer a download of their song titled, yes, Harmony Korine (listen). I like it, all wiggly Pavement guitars and mid90s cuddle-gazecore vocals a bit like Zoilus favourites the Spinanes (Rebecca, Rebecca, wherefore hast thou forsaken us, since that nice-but-not-quite-all-that Ruby Series album?!) in what seems to be a simulated conversation between Harmony and Chloe back in the day about what to wear to a party. Sometimes it's great for music to be just footnotes to time, modest and unassuming and sweet.

Family trivia: Gummo is Mrs. Zoilus's favourite movie. Will Korine ever step up so much again? That smattering of mattering, the brief sparkle at the turn of the century, the Sevigny-Korine Era, seems so far off and unreal.
