Thanks to Paste’s wonderful year-end top songs list, I was able to come across this gem. It’s as if James Murphy were singing over Radiohead’s “Videotape,” with a James Blake vibe all rolling it together. Which is quite pleasing to me.
the thing that strikes me most scrolling back through #dudetime is a certain vulnerability. a friend commented that it seemed like i was tapping into what seemed to be a needed dude outlet, and i like to think that’s true. the sharing of selfies is kinda gendered feminine and thus men doing it is thus considered “sus” or whatever other coded word people are using for “gaaaaay” these days, but dudes want to share and be seen and be open to others in the same way anyone does, they’re just not always given a space for it. and i’m lucky enough to have a bunch of people who i share my internet space with who are super supportive and warm to the dudes that do share, so i think and hope it ends up being a positive experience for them, i definitely want to make it so.
