“She’s a Buddhist, I’m a Cubist (remix)” by Lushlife featuring Angel Deradoorian, Cities Aviv, G-Side, Big Baby Gandhi, Deniro Farrar, KDz Kenny Dennis
Another instance in which the remix is better than the original. In particular, Angel Deradoorian’s always-lovely vocals take the lead and quickly delight. But also, I like how easy it was to fall in love with this song. It is a perfect storm: the lazy summer beat, the light and late-night vocals. You listen to it and don’t want it to end and it keeps going, longer than expected, as if catering to your desires.
"You tried to change didn’t you?
closed your mouth more
tried to be softer
less volatile, less awake
but even when sleeping you could feel
him travelling away from you in his dreams
so what did you want to do, love
split his head open?
you can’t make homes out of human beings
someone should have already told you that
and if he wants to leave
then let him leave
you are terrifying
and strange and beautiful
something not everyone knows how to love."
