Matt pushed me out of the way during Mr. November at red rocks.

Too bad he didn't punch you in the crotch.

I've seen Mistaken for Strangers yesterday. Much better than a lot of the other hyped music documentaries in the last couple of years. It is a touching, relatable and funny story. If you have an older brother as I do, you'll find yourself identifying quite a bit.

I just wanted to make a quick comment on this album's lyricism. Aside from a few weak moments ("it's not a fever / it's a freezer" being the major offender) I think it's a tremendous effort, particularly in the way it deals with anxiety. Matt's lyrics have always had an underpinning of encroaching anxiety from my point of view, and I think Trouble Will Find Me finds him at his best.

A few choice pars:

I can't fight it anymore, I'm going through an awkward phase
I am secretly in love with everyone that I grew up with
I do my crying underwater, I can't get down any farther
All my drowning friends can see, now there is no running from it
It's become the crux of me, I wish that I could rise above it
But I stay down with my demons

Every day I start so great and then the sunlight dims
The less I look the more I see the python in the limbs
I do not know what's wrong with me, the sour is in the cut
When I walk into a room I do not light it up, fuck

I can hardly stand up right, I hit my head upon the light
I have faith but don't believe it, it's not there enough to leave it
Everything I love is on the table
Everything I love is out to sea
I have only two emotions, careful fear and dead devotion
I can't get the balance right, with all my marbles in the fight

I'm tired, I'm freezing, I'm dumb
When it gets so late I forget everyone
I need somewhere to stay
I don't think anybody I know is awake
Calm down, it's all right
Keep my arms the rest of the night

Jenny I am in trouble
Can't get these thoughts out of me
Jenny I'm seeing double
I know this changes everything
It takes a lot of pain to pick me up
It takes a lot of rain in the cup

Graceless
Is there a powder to erase this?
Is it dissolvable and tasteless?
You can't imagine how I hate this
I don't have the sunny side to face this
I am invisible and weightless
You can't imagine how I hate this
Graceless
I'm trying, but I'm gone, through the glass again, just come and find me
God loves everybody, don't remind me
I took the medicine and I went missing
Just let me hear your voice, just let me listen

Come apart at my seams, now I know what dying means
I am not my rosy self, left my roses on my shelf
Take the white ones, they're my favourites
It's the side effects that save us

I'm in the crush and I hate it, my eyes are falling
I'm having trouble inside my skin, I'll try to keep my skeletons in

I keep coming back to where everything slipped
But I will not spill my guts out
I don't need help to breakable, believe me

Davy says that I look taller
But I can't get my head around it, I keep falling smaller and smaller

I couldn't find quiet, I went out in the rain
I was just soaking my head to unrattle my brain

I didn't ask for this pain, it just came over me
I love a storm but I don't love lightning
All the water's coming up so fast it's frightening

You said it would be painless, a needle in a doll
You said it would be painless, it wasn't that at all


Okay, that's a shitload, but I just think they're really good and I can relate to them. I Need My Girl is one of my favourite songs on the record because the music sounds anxious as well.

My favourite Matt lyrics though remain the ones where I feel like he's trying to bat away those Demons. All the Wine and This is the Last Time (before the "Jenny I am in trouble..." part) are two examples of that.

I haven't listened to this album, or anything from it, in quite a while.

I haven't listened to it in at least a month or so, but I get sea of love stuck in my head at some point on a daily basis.

I've listened to it yesterday and it was as good as ever. Probably my favourite record since In Rainbows or In Ghost Colours.

Did I mention I saw them twice this weekend? Did I mention Justin Vernon came out for "Terrible Love" and "Vanderlyle" Saturday night? Did I mention I'm seeing them in a few days with Tame Impala?

Guys, did I?

Listen: The National’s new song “Lean” | Consequence of Sound

I immediately thought of acoustic One in the opening seconds. Solid tune.
