owen pallett (formerly ‘final fantasy’….this guy writes the string parts for arcade fire) -“midnight directives.”
my radio/alarm went off around 7:15 this morning to wake me up for work. first song that came on was “7/4 shoreline” by broken social scene, so i stayed in bed and listened to it. this was the next song, featuring crazy violin loops and borderline dizzying wind parts. once it was done, i called up and groggily asked the the v89 DJ about the track. if the word “exhilarating” comes to mind about something that took place before 8 am, a post on here is seriously the least i can do.
