Major Matt’s 1st Monday, April 2019 Playlist

 April is the cruellest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.    

— from “The Waste Land” by T.S. Eliot

T.S. Eliot was one of my favorite poets in college. His dark imagery and twisted perspective spoke to me as a young artist. I thought to be “real” I had to be tortured and cynical. I would seek these things out for inspiration and validation. As I get older, it seems like suffering gets easier and easier to come by. Music has always helped me find the beauty and love attached to all suffering.

This month’s playlist includes songs by Red House Painters, Thomas Patrick Maguire, Herman Dune, Jeffery Lewis and Los Bolts, The Dead Texan, Casio Tones For The Painfully Alone, Wire, Rema Rema, The Feelies, Neil Young, Brooke Pridemore and more…
