Sooner or later, relationships break down; all of us will someday be looking back on the end of our hopes for making that one personal connection that could outlast everything life throws at it, every error and miscalculation we make as we try to be both things: open, trusting lovers and our *actual* selves, alone and selfish at the core. We wanted a miracle, yeah we did ... but sometimes what we get is just a lucky break.
Observing such a 10-year anniversary recently, I found myself listening to a lot of relationship songs & I also found that plenty of bands are still capably providing the tunes we crave to match that reminiscent mood. Tracks gathered for this show range from the gently explosive Parlovr indie-rocker to the austere meditations of Spooncurve to the archly sophisticated advice of Depeche Mode. As we need them to, the poets and musicians shine a light on all the different ways we experience this inescapable milestone in life.
