South Point

 

A lonely country road. South Point, Hawaii

 

An empty road may not seem too strange to some people, but after the hustle and bustle I experienced in NYC, it was a rare opportunity.  So, an otherwise uninterrupted ride home, became a photo op.  I convinced my brother to pull over.  I got out and snapped the picture.  And before I stepped back into the car, I looked around.  It was just us two and a couple of horses off in the distance. I got back in and we continued home. Minutes later, we weren’t the only cars on the country road, but still, it was great while it lasted.

Opossom.  What can I say?  For starters, I’ve been listening to this indie-pop band for several months now.  If you asked me more than half a year ago about what I thought about Opossom’s kind of music, I would have said that it wasn’t for me.  It didn’t fit into a neat little niche.  It had a kind of dissonance. It was strange to my ear.  It was a litany of things.  But after sitting down and taking a good listen to their debut album Electric Hawaii, all those list of things began to disappear. What was hard to configure in my head/ears became the songs that I would find myself singing out of the blue.

So I’m glad to say that Electric Hawaii is now a mainstay on my playlist.

I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
