given to the wild, given to the wilder ways

I am absolutely horrible at reviewing things (music/books/films/etc). I can never properly articulate what is in my head into words as eloquently as I would like to. 

Anyways, this really isn't a review...it's mainly a post about how I am massively obsessing over the new Maccabees album. To simply put it, it's AMAZING. 'Given to the Wild' is the type of album you listen to on your bedroom floor, with your headphones on and your eyes closed...giving it your full attention. Equal measures melancholic and saccharine, it's a great album to listen to on a afternoon rainy day with a cup of tea (cliche, I know...but sounds like a good way to spend an afternoon to me).

My favorite tracks at the moment...

Forever I've Known
"i want to see you...it's not good enough to have you here in my head"

Slowly One
"every little loving word said out of love, growing cold..."
I could seriously listen to this song on repeat for hours.

"just a glimmer, from the way beyond...but you're lost today"

this is just too good.

let nothing hold you back except air itself

Thanks to Abby's recent praise of the film 'Cracks'...

"It's a like a sexually charged film noir version of A Little Princess" 

...I decided to watch it.

My friend Abby describes this film a bit more elegantly than I would. If I were to describe this, it would be something like, "it's like a fucked up version of A Little Princess with a bit of Lord of the Flies on the side..."

 I can't say it'll be a new favorite mine but the cinematography alone makes it worth a view.
