Slothrust - 7:30am
Yesterday, my friend synecdoche wrote an article on the FX show, You’re the Worst, which is equals parts romance, comedy and darkness, featuring two protagonists you’re not really supposed to like.
There are only 10 episodes so far (about 27 minutes long) so, naturally, I watched every single episode one night. In the moments between watching episodes, I found the theme song stuck in my head.
It took about three seconds of googling and two clicks to find the artist, Slothrust. What I love about this song is how the lyrics puts us in bed, at 7:30am, looking at your partner who is still sleeping and yeah, you love them but god you also fucking hate them. And you realize you hate them more than you love them, that you’re more tired of their shit than enamored by it. And in the quietness of morning that feels like a promise, you have the courage to really think you are going to be the one to leave them anyway.
It’s lo-fi done right, emotionally raw and honest, grungy but not so rough around the edges.
