Motopony – Wait For Me
I always feel pressed to post new music, it’s just, if everybody has heard it – then no one wants to hear it, or so it seems. Today I go against my own grain. I was sick last week and since I often travel for work, I spent three days in forced solitude trapped in a hotel room.
Save for a few random texts, I didn’t communicate much to anyone – including the maid. She Cuban (I was in Miami) and I long ago forgot the two years of Spanish I took in high school, so I couldn’t even carry on pleasantries with her. Even if I had remembered, I would have probably just pointed at stuff in the room and announced it, like “el baño” and “la ventana” and she would have thought I was an idiot.
As I sat there, losing my mind by each stale minute – Motopony came over one of my playlists and stuck me like a blade in between the ribs. “Wait For Me” has always been able to drag me back to a lot of memories I’ve tried to black out, and makes me reason with myself – convincing me of things that I likely wouldn’t have come to on my own. I’ll never fully understand how music has that capacity, but it’s a part of the myriad reasons that makes it so important to me.
The Seattlites’ self titled album came out back in 2010, but it really makes no difference to me when their songs come over the speakers – it will always be good music. Check ‘em out. Oh, and thanks for making it through my likely high-school level short essay.
