There are two ways to listen to Jon Waltz‘s new track “Home.” One is the surface level, where it sounds good–maybe reminds you of Drake. Cool. The second way is if you actually listen to the lyrics and realize that every line is quotable. There is no wasted space on this song, which is a feat accomplished by only the most competent songwriters.
In his own words:
“I wrote this in an empty apartment in Missouri, not Home. Because Home only looks nice from a distant view. It’s a strange euphoric feeling that I get when I visit Home, and I want to translate that feeling to my listeners in hopes that they can relate to it. This song kind of embodies that feeling of being inside your head when you’re at a party and you’re drunk, having the accepted misconception of “fun”, but you still feel really, really alone. But I’d rather have fun to this instead.”
I was on one, fuck it I was on two or three…
S/O to Hypetrak for the premiere.
There are ebbs and flow in the vortex of music on the Internet: times where you spend hours searching for new music and get nothing but the same vapid raps and overly cheery indie rock jingles. Right when you are about to give up, fate throws you an artist like Allan Kingdom, and suddenly, your sleep deprived mind feels revived again. The artist that matters makes you pay attention, and St. Paul native Allan Kingdom matters. I had the privilege of talking to Kingdom last week. In our interview, we discuss the making of his new Future Memoirs EP, the booming St. Paul music scene, and his team made up of the legendary Plain Pat, DJ Kaslow, and Ben Hughes.
