That I might like it is secondary
on February 7, 2015
Full disclosure: I am not particularly knowledgeable about music. I bought this album after hearing songs from it on Pandora. If a song captures my attention while I'm working so that I click over to see the band and learn more about it, I will usually buy it. I work in a noisy, hectic space so the music I listen to is mostly to drown out noise. That I might like it is secondary.
EITS was my autumn running soundtrack. I listened to this a lot when running on chilly afternoons with a low sun as well as on the treadmill when it was too dark or cold to run outside. Since we had an especially snowy and cold November, I also listened to EITS while shoveling.
The music is complex enough to be interesting but not so erudite that it leaves me, a rather average listener, feeling like I'm not getting the inside joke or disaffected because the music is meant to impress rather than express an idea or emotion. I suspect to those who really KNOW music there is a lot there to sink your teeth into and analyze. But me? I like to listen to it while I run since that is when I do my best thinking. I honestly think having a good soundtrack helps.
