It’s been a month since our beloved blochead did a smart thing and started “The Short List,” because list season is coming for us and Blocland likes to have its shit together. Bloc used that first post to rant about the weather like I do on a first date, but now on top of the sun’s merciless onslaught we’ve got smoke and flames and hurricanes to deal with. What a mess! Those fools in Westeros are getting off easy, amiright?
Anyway, I’m gonna add to “The Short List” with one of personal Songs of the Summer™ (yeah I just trademarked that, all music blogs pay up). It’s “Trees On Fire” by DJDS. I know, shitty timing. My home state is basically turning into Mordor right now. But this song is some thumping, delicious electro-pop with a gorgeous refrain that has a strangely emotional edge to it. Back in June I was banging this while driving up a mountain pass at sunset, and I swear I teared up a bit.
Anyway, add this to this list.
