Everyone’s trying too hard. And it’s just disgusting. Modern musicians, in particular, for all their effort, can’t move away from the pressure of expectation. They make songs as if everyone in the world is going to hear them. No matter what, most of them deserve to be heard by nobody. Try and please everyone and you fail to even please yourself. 

Where are all the rockstars who achieved their success by pure chance? Where are all the songwriters who couldn’t even change a tire and had to settle on a career in music? Those are the people we can trust. Those are the people who aren’t going to lie to us once they’re given a microphone and an audience. 

Roselove’s “marionette” is a very interesting song, not one for which the performer lost much sleep over the night before, and entirely interesting. It sounds like having a conversation at a bus stop with someone with someone who claims they can heal the sick but doesn’t want to. It’s interesting. It involves little effort on all parts. And it deserves repeated listens. 


Bryony Williams  – Trip Me Up

Similar artists: The Big Moon, Courtney Barnett, girl in red, Marika Hackman

Genre: Indie Pop

People like to obsess over details, especially when it comes to work that isn’t theirs or to a talent that they do not possess. They like to know just how much time a great guitarist spent every day practicing. As if the speed at which they can pick notes in a scale will explain their greatness as a musician. They like to talk about what kind of camera a great photographer uses. As if that alone can explain just what makes their work special to many others. 

Audiences don’t want to know how a magic trick works. That would spoil it. That would mean that paying money for the ticket was a silly mistake. However, the moment that the audience members decide that they want to be the magician, they want to know exactly where the secret pocket of the hat the rabbit is hiding. 

Bryony Williams’ “Trip Me Up” is not a musical success that can be explained through simple arithmetic. It’s not about the speed of the playing, the range of the singing, or any of that stuff. It’s all about what the author sees, where they decide that they ought to be looking, and the special way in which they can make these observations be turned into a song. That’s how they make it work and there might not be any way to ever explain it.
