Ezra Furman’s 2015 album Perpetual Motion People is one of my favorite albums. Nearly perfect from start to finish (the exception for me being Tip of a Match)
My favorite has and will always be Restless Year, but I’ve been paying special attention to this song of late.
I especially love the lines:
Let’s start with your life as you know it/Way back in our mothers’ wombs folded like notebooks
The human mind gets sick real easy/The human mind gets way fucking sick of beauty
You’ve gotta make it new/You’ve gotta keep it new to keep it true
I’m aware Ezra isn’t for everyone, and that’s cool.
I’ll be over here listening to and loving this unique singer/songwriter.
