Endless Loop: Kimmi in a Rice Field

twinsisterHave you ever had one of those songs that gets stuck in your head for days…weeks…years? Sure you have. These are the songs that always make the cut. The songs on repeat. We all have them. I have a ton. Welcome back to Endless Loop.

“Kimmi in a Rice Field” by Mr Twin Sister

I wish I was one of those people that remembered their dreams.  My wife is one.  My oldest son appears to be too.  But I’m just not.  I’ll have a vague recollection of thoughts upon waking in the morning, flashes of things that feel more like impressions rather than memories, but then they fade away, vanished from my head often before my feet even hit the floor.  And to be honest, it makes me feel a little left out.

I guess I’ll have to settle for faux dreamlike states as created from airy and hazy pop music.

Mr Twin Sister (formerly known as just Twin Sister which admittedly I liked better) provided just such a tune with the gorgeous and dreamy “Kimmi in a Rice Field” from their 2011 album In Heaven.  A glowing, sweeping combination of dreampop and synth pop, the song floats about like a lonesome ghost, a phantasmal image caught in your periphery, following you from moment to moment, and moving through an endless desert, the storm clouds gathering on the horizon threatening to break.  There’s a kind of unreality to the whole thing, accentuated by the song’s ghost story lyrics, those breathing synths, and a haunting melody that just whisks your consciousness away.

A world askew, these are the soundtracks to my pretend dreams.

I’m going to take the next couple of weeks off to clear my head and spend some time with friends and family.  Hopefully shithead doesn’t blow the world up before i come back.
