Day 109: Snowing – I Could Do Whatever I Wanted if I Wanted

17 Jun

Could Be Better Forever 

I need angry music right now.  Sleigh Bells just cancelled their set at Lollapalooza, and I am raging.  This was the straw that broke the camel’s back.  I was pretty happy with the lineup when it came out back in April, even though there was only one headliner that I kind of wanted to see (Muse).  Then the schedule came out.  I convinced myself that it was okay, because I paid $202 for a ticket, even though it was loaded with conflicts.  Then a band that I love, possibly the band that I wanted to see the most, cancelled.  The effing eff?  I might be skipping Lolla this year.  I haven’t decided.

Anyway.  Snowing and Sleigh Bells have absolutely nothing in common.  Snowing’s music does suit this angry mindset that I was in as I listened to their first LP, and as I write this now, though.

Snowing’s tunes are more emotional, similar to Algernon Cadwallader, a type of music that I’ve found myself getting more and more into lately.  It’s fast paced, it sounds great, and most importantly, it doesn’t go on for too long.  I Could Do Whatever I Wanted if I Wanted is just over in 29 minutes in length, which is in its best interest.  That level of angst can really start to wear after prolonged exposure, so keeping it short is a good move by Snowing.

With quick tempos, plenty of shouting, and a sense of unresolved teenage hate, I Could Do Whatever is great for when you’re pissed off.  Hopefully, it holds up just as well when I’m not in a bad mood.  Believe me, that happens every now and then.
