plekvis's current selection is:
Not
by Big Thief
Fell in love with this song immediately when i heard it for the first time. When i heard it again today i thought i had to share it.I had to google the name of this site beceause i forgot it... That's what you get if your last post is more then 2,5 years ago.

It's good to know that i'm not the only one sharing this song beceause i see it appearing in my timeline! I wanted to share this version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gszx9Ftjih4 but that one was not allowed so i choose this audio version since the Late Show version (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWW-eKX8uSo) was already shared.

For me this is the song of the year form the record of the year. Hope you will enjoy it as well.
If you do, you can buy or stream the record here: https://bigthief.ffm.to/twohands

Big Thief - Not


It’s not the energy reeling
Nor the lines in your face
Nor the clouds on the ceiling
Nor the clouds in space
It’s not the phone on the table
Nor the bed in the earth
Nor the bed in the stable
Nor your stable words
It's not the formless being
Nor the cry in the air
Nor the boy I’m seeing

With her long black hair
It’s not the open weaving
Nor the furnace glow
Nor the blood of you bleeding
As you try to let go

It’s not the room
Not beginning
Not the crowd
Not winning
Not the planet
Not spinning
Not a rouse
Not heat
Not the fire lapping up the creek
Not food
Not to eat

Not the meat of your thigh
Nor your spine tattoo
Nor your shimmery eye
Nor the wet of the dew
It’s not the warm illusion
Nor the crack in the plate
Nor the breath of confusion
Nor the starkness of slate

It’s not the room
Not beginning
Not the crowd
Not winning
Not the planet
Not spinning
Not a rouse
Not heat
Not the fire lapping up the creek
Not food
Not to eat

Not what you really wanted
Nor the mess in your purse
Nor the bed that is haunted
with a blanket of thirst
It’s not the hunger revealing
Nor the ricochet in the cave
Nor the hand that is healing

Nor the nameless grave

It’s not the room
Not beginning
Not the crowd
Not winning
Not the planet
Not spinning
Not a rouse
Not heat
Not the fire lapping up the creek
Not food
Not to eat
Not to die
Not dying
Not to laugh
Not lying
Not the vacant wilderness vying
Not the room
Not beginning
Not the crowd
Not winning
Not the planet
Not spinning
