Pilling Polyester Blends
Stephanie Homa - Standing on High Ground (2009)
Suckers - Afterthoughts & TV (mp3): Today's lazy baseline, sounds of clinking Red Stripe bottles in the background. A calypso record plays softly next door. Someone starts tapping on the unbalanced metal patio table like a snare. Voices feel raw and faded from laundering, yet are overextended to try and make a point. We yelp and echo about characters on TV until the puddle of energy starts to dry up in the overcast heat. The last piano arpeggios trickle down the concrete steps. Trumpet squeaks shrivel, leaving only silent afternoon content and pilling polyester blends.
