Bon Iver – Holocene Lyrics 7 years ago
Coming from Mr. Vernon himself:

"Holocene is a bar in Portland, Ore., but it's also the name of a geologic era, an epoch if you will. It's a good example of how all the songs are all meant to come together as this idea that places are times and people are places and times are... people? [Laughs.] They can all be different and the same at the same time. Most of our lives feel like these epochs. That's kind of what that song's about. "Once I knew I was not magnificent." Our lives feel like these epochs, but really we are dust in the wind. But I think there's a significance in that insignificance that I was trying to look at in that song."

Bon Iver – Blood Bank Lyrics 10 years ago
i´m so in love with this song can´t wait to hear the studio version of it.
the lyrics are pretty obvious and Justin mentioned that it´s about "being stuck with a girl in the snow"
i love the whole imagery he uses throughout the song although i´m quite sure it´s

"i said know it well" instead of "i said oh no one will".

Guillemots – Kriss Kross Lyrics 11 years ago
I first had a problem with the synthesizer they´re using throughout the whole song cause its sounds like a hip hop sort of thing. After a few listens, it didn´t bother me that much and come on, the last two minutes of the song are stunning.

can not wait for their second full-length

The Weakerthans – Everything Must Go! Lyrics 11 years ago
one of the best weakerthans songs ever written.

I love how he connects usual, material things like razors, cutlery and coffee cups with all his wishes and desires (e.g. the outline to a complicated dream of dignity).

Whenever i hear this song, i have a clear image in my head how John is standing in his garage, offering things from the past to get rid of it and start all over again.

Bloc Party – Kreuzberg Lyrics 12 years ago
Kele said in an interview that Kreuzberg is about being a human that wants to love. On the one hand, he just wants to fuck around and go out and party on the other hand, the only thing, means something to him is intimacy with another woman/man. and this is not meant sexually

I think you did a good Job on this One. I´ve only heard the Live Version from the Glen Gould Studio and it´s breathtaking. I hope they come out with a new album sometime in 2007 !
