>>61777409 >Bradford Cox (Deerhunter) It’s funny, last year when we were making Fading Frontier I started to revisit Young Americans, which previously had never really been one of my favorites. I always preferred the records where he was sort of channeling something alien and darker and more strange—and that record just never felt that way to me. Maybe I just wasn’t the right age or it wasn’t the right time yet for me to really understand it, but now when I hear that record it just blows my mind. He can’t just simply interpret soul music the way most people might try to, he turns it into something angular and modernist and Bowie-like. It really speaks to me now in a way it didn’t before, which is also kind of the story of the way all of his records have functioned in my life. In the past 12 months I’ve listened to the song "Win" more than any other song in the world—the melancholy, the drama, the noir-ishness of the whole thing. That song is like a glove for my brain.
>Mark Kozolek (Sun Kil Moon / Red House Painters) My first flight ever, was a trip to see my grandmother during the summer between second and third grade. Back then, you could listen to one song or another on the plane, and I listened to "Young Americans' about a hundred times on the way to Los Angeles from Ohio. When we got back to Ohio, I begged my mom to buy me that record. It was my first album and it was 4.99. The song 'Win' is one of my favorite songs, ever.
>>61777297 I like bowie a lot, I've been going steadily through his discography giving each album a few listens. The only two I couldn't make it through were this and his debut. For me it's the fucking saxophone solos.
YOUNG AMERICAN YOUNG AMERICAN SHE WANTS A YOUNG AMERICAN AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALL NIGHT
>>61777297 uh, aint nothing corny about it if you cant get into multple and layered vocals why do you even try to listen to bowie? just stick knives in your ears and complete your renunciation of the joy of sound.
