SONG OF THE WEEK(END): Loving- “Bowlly Goes Dancing Drunk Into the Future”

Loving is a mellow indie rock band from Victoria, British Columbia. Their song “Bowlly Going Dancing Drunk Into the Future” is off their 2016 self-titled LP, an album heavy with motifs of delicate nature, letting go, and wandering.  Listen to “Bowlly Going Dancing” while sharing a dessert with a friend this weekend.

maybe you could talk freely 
speak to me for once so truly 
for once so truly 
i could know 
just where you’re going 
just where i’m standing. 
that would really be something. 

in most ways on most days 
i am clearly disappearing 
i am clearly disappearing 
at the thought of our nearing 
an end. 

this morning i awoke 
and read the words 
that you wrote. 
they were different from what you spoke 
they were different from what you spoke 
and it was there you declared 
all love is unfair.

SONG OF THE WEEKEND: Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band- “I’m Glad”

Sitting outside on this sunny Sunday, listening to old Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band, I feel gluttonously at ease. This 1967 track off Safe as Milk will soothe you over, relax your muscles, and put you in the nostalgic shoes of all the alumni on campus this weekend. Don Van Vliet’s tender, bluesy voice sings of good times, gratitude, and loss while his Magic Band coos behind him. The constant tempo keeps a groovy vibe, perfect to put on repeat while swaying with a friend, taking a walk, or doing a problem set on this fine weekend.
