It is remarkable to me that someone encased in the misery of losing a wife (who is also the mother to his infant child because that amplifies the magnitude of the shit) would put that misery to canvas and make art. In this case canvas is a metaphor.
Mount Eerie's A Crow Looked at Me is a diary of Phil Elverum's loss and grief. His daughter was 18 months old at the time of her mother's death. Whatever stupid thing I might write after that would be worthless.

Do you want Depeche Mode lecturing you about politics? Why not. They've been consistent about whether or not people are people (they are) for 30+ years now.

|"The Punishment of Luxury"|
Artist: Giovanni Segantini
Naturally I meant OMD.
I really liked their English Electric album (another post-reformation) and am optimistic about this one as well (always a bad sign). The title is meant to convey the idea of "first world" problems.
