Blinking Lights and Other Revelations by the Eels… This is just one of those albums that I guess I just really feel. It sticks with me. It’s been a while since I’ve had one of those. It’s not quite as coherent, but it feels like The Wall in a lot of ways. It has a lot of really strong themes that keep coming back around again, but in different ways. There really are a lot of similarities between prog and indie music, it’s all about labels. Like I’ve said before, let’s all pretending it’s so fucking easy to label music with genres, all right, guys?
Similarly, there’s a podcast I’ve found that’s dug it’s way into my soul as well. I haven’t yet explored the site, but it can be found at The podcast is called The Mental Illness Happy Hour. If you think you might be screwed up and have ever considered therapy, this might be the push that you need in the right direction. Though I haven’t been back to counseling in a while, this has really got me thinking about it, and it feels good listening to it. It’s got me thinking more than anything else has, and just as good album does every now and then, it seems like I am experiencing the world in a different way now. I listen to a lot of podcasts, but this is something truly amazing.
