Contradictions
Contradictions
09/07/09 at 11:04 PM by hockeyguitar99
If anyone has paid any attention to my blog (by the way, does anyone pay any attention to my blog?), they know that the end of the summer was rough as hell for me. The beginning of the school year, while better, has not been great either. Naturally, the music I listen to has turned as well. But there seems to be a stark contradiction between the feel of these albums.

The Antlers vs. fun.
Ted Leo and The Pharmacists vs. Sunny Day Real Estate

etc.

Maybe it's me grasping onto whatever positivity I can find, or maybe it's just me trying to hard. But what I've noticed is the happier albums don't make me feel happier, I certainly enjoy listening to them, but differently. For example fun.'s "At Least I'm not as Sad". As opposed to listening to that song with the air of hopefulness I should, I just listen to it with a cruel sense of irony. I feel spiteful, and I don't like it.
