Radiohead released two new music videos recently. Both times I saw the link to their new material on my Facebook news feed, I was instantly rendered child-like with excitement. I was a child hearing the jingle of an ice cream van on a hot summer day. Sure enough, I love their new songs.
I've been getting more into music recently; rekindling an old fire. I used to be obsessed with it. That's probably why I stopped following the charts and new releases. I needed to get away.
Now I'm a lot more picky with music than I ever was. I'm picky about lyrics and meaning. I'm picky about how songs make me feel. I've started to care more about what I fill my head with.
|Fly Exam by JGivens is one of the records that|
have piqued my interest in music again.
This hip-hop debut has old-school vibes and
insightful lyrics about purpose and humanity.
I feel something else too. A gratitude that I'm not the only one who feels empty at times. A gratitude for the reminder that I'm surrounded by humans like me. I'm surrounded by people and not perfect, unfeeling beings.
