ray lamontagne used to be my ultimate fave. nowadays i might not so readily admit this, just like i don't think i would readily admit that perks of being a wallflower used to be my favorite book. something about the time i experienced these two things, differing in medium, but similar in emotion, ray lamontagne was my outlet, for the feelings i couldn't let myself feel yet. my foray into the downright dancy and new musical horizons has taken me elsewhere in current days, so i don't really go back to those moments anymore... maybe i was too young, and maybe it led me deeper in, but to avoid getting into it, his songs meant something. kind of like radiohead or black lipstick means something now. its a projection of emotion that i am all too willing to take on.
ray and i took a long break, but his new album made me crave a listen. its just what we all want to hear. 'cause you are the best thing. you, or a good solid cig on a cold night.
