🎵 Listened to Any Other City by Life Without Buildings
Any Other City
Life Without Buildings
The Spotify algorithm added a different track from Any Other City by Life Without Buildings on every “Discover Weekly” playlist of mine for a month straight so I decided to give the whole record a listen and it was as if I have heard it a bunch of times already. It’s the trademark alt/indie-rock sound, the spoken word passages and even rapping attempts, maybe this was it in the early 2000’s, but 2 decades later it feels as if everyone has done it.
I did listen to it a couple more times though because it is extremely catchy and there are absolute gems on the record: “PS Exclusive”, “The Leanover” and my favorite “Let’s Get Out” with its…
“Ting ting, look around… just information!”
Patti Smith and Lenny Kaye vibes all the way.
One thing I was surprised to discover is how the band Dry Cleaning sounds like a “tone-down” version of this that’s actually currently touring. Make sure to check them out too.
