L. F. Céline – Journey to the end of the night

Then I fell sick, I was delirious, driven mad by fear, they said at the hospital. Maybe so. The best thing to do when you’re in this world, don’t you agree, is to get out of it. Crazy or not, scared or not.

R. Musil – The Man Without Qualities

The woderful SZA

There was a post about her but in case you missed it I’ll return to praising her, for she’s the most interesting artist that emerged this year, and her new record comes out next week.

All the crucial elements she has. The voice is sublime, the lyrics are full of spirituality, still avoiding being banal or dull. I mean you can trust her, just listen.

Then, beside that, there is a lot to contemplate in her music videos. She carefully constructs her image – an introvert, a soul that has been hurt a few times too many. And her close relationship with nature is also there, especially the forest filmed in ‘Ice Moon’ is simply out of this world.

Now, being signed to the leading hip-hop label of today –  TDE she’s going to have a shot at wider fame very soon. I can’t see any other possibility right now, with such talent and dedication. She should try a song with Janelle Monae, they’d be like fire and ice put togather. Peace.

Professional journals or perpetual burn holes

Scarring up the dirty floor
