Here are all of c3o's jams.
by Animal Collective
Another all-time favorite as TIMJ shuts down. In love with the image these lyrics paint of insomniatic restlessness alleviated by companionship. /// Nowhere to go while our bodies glow / and I want to walk around with you / just you, just you, just you, just you / don't cool off— I like your warmth

This Is My Jam is going away! :( I'm ending on a high note with one of my all-time favorite songs by the artist I've listened to twice as much as any other over the last 12 years. /// In skewed ascension with no destination / like this lone bachelor in me / this constant yearning for great love and learning / for the wind to carry me free / So when the birds fly south / reach up and hold their tails / pull up and out of here / bridle the autumn gales... / From my window I saw two birds lost at sea / I caught our reflection in that silent tragedy / but with hope prevailing I draw galleons sailing / in full sail [we are always] billowing free... / I give you my hand / the fingers unfold / to have and forever hold / to marry the untold blisses / and anchor my lost soul...

You'll be given love / You have to trust it / Maybe not from the sources you have poured yours / Maybe not from the directions you are staring at / Twist your head around / It's all around you /// This Is My Jam is going away! :( I'll end on a high note with two of my favorite tracks ever. Funkstörung blew my mind and made me fall in love with glitchy beats with this remix of an already wonderful song (and video).

Heard on the #cccamp15 dance floor (YJ Heimi's YouTube set) on a special night <3 /// Take time to see the wonders of the world / To see the things you've only ever heard of / Dream life the way you think it ought to be / See things you thought you'd never ever see...

Fell in love with her music when I stumbled on her MySpace many years ago. Pushed all my bedroom/headphone music buttons: Homemade, sweet, fuzzy, just weird enough. The songs from back then all had charming Casiotone beats, but this one might work even better with her brother's live drumming.

These drums excite me. (Sorry for the 40 secs of talking in the beginning) Hold out your arms / and place them in mine / don't let me feel you shake / in fear they find mistake / I will not let you fail

Today in premature predictions: "This is not how we planned it / We've gotten ahead of ourselves / Computers rule the planet / And the Moon and Mars as well / We lost the fight / That's 2009"
Jammed: 11th Jun 2015
We weave in and out of consciousness alone / Til our bodies collide and keep us from getting cold / Skin pores open up and swallow each other whole / And the scars we collect connect and reverse the flow Emotions in motions motion us to wars / And our past experiences serve as swords / Each life that we take burns holes into the walls / Til the roof caves in and we wash up on the shore And so it goes...

The moon screams in my ear: “Stay up all night / Day is fake and you know I’m right / It shoots all that excessive light / and just distracts us from the facts: / We’re floating in a vast expanse of black.”

No family is safe when I sachay... [“If these fucking people want to give me some power—if they see me as some sea witch with penis tentacles that are always prodding and poking and seeking to convert the muggles—well, here she comes.”] Free concert in Brussels tomorrow!

by Blonde Redhead
Blonde Redhead is back with an upcoming album & tour. I first heard them when I was interning in Chicago, knowing nobody and turning to the web to meet people. A girl was looking for someone to accompany her to their concert. Google served up this song (from 1998) and I was hooked. Still love that tumbling, stumbling beat. Freak / fake / cold / old / not that way / the other way

All my life I've watched you dance along / To music that I can't hear / I ain't equipped to hear those songs ... / You were never at rest / You were always somewhere-bound / And I'd hate to see you caged / So all that I ask / Is you come say hi when you're around

Wait! There's more…
