Purity Ring - "Lofticries" (album: "Shrine" - 4AD & Last Gang Records, 2012)


Bring, bring the thunder 
and the loud, loud rain 
Lead our woes asunder 
'neath the proud, proud veins 

Of traits that bleed the gunmen 
of our pumping, earthly hearts 
Ween our joys in plunder 
Feel our shining teeth 
Bet our hold on happiness 

Bead-weighted tests with lofticries 
Lofticries with trembling thighs 
Weepy chests with weepy sighs 
Weepy skin with trembling thighs 

You must be hovering over yourself 
watching us trip on each other's sides 
Dear brother, collect all the liquids off of the floor 
Use your oily fingers 
Make a paste, let it form 

Let it seep through your sockets and earholes 
into your precious, fractured skull 
Let it seep, let it keep you from us 
Patiently heal you 
Patiently unreel you 

Bead-weighted tests with lofticries 
Lofticries with trembling thighs 
Weepy chests with weepy sighs 
Weepy skin with trembling thighs 

You must be hovering over yourself 
watching us trip on each other's sides 
Dear brother, collect all the liquids off of the floor 
Use your oily fingers 
Pick up paste, let it form 

Lofticries 

Bead-weighted tests with lofticries 
Lofticries with trembling thighs 
Weepy chests with weepy sighs 
Weepy skin with trembling thighs 

Lofticries 


You must be hovering over yourself 
watching us trip on each other's sides

στις πιο ευαίσθητες γωνιές

DIIV - "Doused" (album: "Oshin" - Captured Tracks, 2012)



Never had you run so far 
but you really gotta get away 
you know it in the nighttime 
running to it. 

Caught a rising star 
but then you let it drop into the ocean 
now the water's running through it. 

Now you've gone so far 
you really had to get away 
you knew it in your lifetime 
running to it. 

Acting like you've come so far 
the bed you made yourself and this house and me 
are all falling apart. 

Never thought you'd go so far 
but you're really gone and it's been so long 
I never really think about it. 

You made a beating heart 
Whatever, now that amber light has faded 
and it's yours to commit to it. 

Act like it stops and starts 
a gesture here and there 
for me is one thing 
but I felt it every time you blew it 

Now you've gone too far 
your urge to runaway is back 
and we all know.

Καλή χρονιά, έστω και καθυστερημένα)
