I spent around 5 hours in the ER today waiting to figure out what’s making me sick. It was a little unnerving at times, but I did get a big chunk of Davide Foster Wallace’s Infinite Jest to gestate in my head, so that was an accomplishment.
In conjunction with my hospital visit, here’s a free album by a dude called Decomposure. How do they match? Well, the mix is under the name Humidity Patient Guide and has numerous allusions and direct references to medical establishments. And for the sake of this blog, Decomposure isn’t so much emo; more an electronic, bedroom pop that has a strong taste of The Postal Service, an act many folks falsely consider to be emo just because of the frankness with which Ben Gibbard’s lyrics discuss romance and love in graphic detail. (That poor dude will never escape the negative undertones of the emo tag.)
