18 January 2014


this was a year of convergences. friends' writing & friends of
friends' writing (& also associations)…  not all from this year. also,
i've been waiting for my bloody valentine's follow-up to loveless
since seeing them open for dinosaur jr. way back in 1992 (& again in
2008).  mbv is literally the only nonexistent (now extant!) record to
have single-handedly defined my entire listening life. an entire
generation grew up in its absence.
thirteen things, in no special order.
my bloody valentine : mbv
e. tracy grinnell : portrait of a lesser subject
jamie townsend : shade
peter larkin : leaves of field & lessways least scarce among
jean-louis chretien : the wounded word
matthew hall : hyaline
megan kaminski : desiring map
cj martin : unused cover
ossian foley : OF, vol. I
mark lamoureux : 29 cheeseburgers, 39 years
marthe reed : (dis)embodied bliss
norma cole : spinoza in her youth
jh prynne : poems (2nd edition)
