Music for the Weekend: No Eyes by Baths.
Sorry for the slow week, am in Los Angeles for the week, attending the Producer’s Guild of America Conference. My script for “The One Trick Rip-Off” was selected by the PGA as one of their ten best and I’ve got a lot of meetings to take. Super excited about what may become of all this. And I get so see some very dear friends in town. Good times all around.
When I go to LA I spend a lot of time in traffic, so I spend a good amount of time before I leave Chicago and come up with some driving mixes for the road (LA radio is amazing, but only at certain hours). I’m taking the entirety of the new Baths album, it’s that amazing. This song in particular draws upon two of my favorite things - the beat from NIN’s “Closer” and a chorus that also repeats the word ‘fuck’ in its most animal and appropriate form. This is a beautifully brilliant song, about a guy who’s recovering from a debilitating medical condition and asking for a girl to just fuck him so he can feel something. It’s just honest, no bullshit heart-on-sleeve writing, and I love it.
So to all those people who see me singing in my car, shouting “come and fuck me,” it’s not a literal invitation or request, I’m just singing an awesome song.
Have a great weekend!
