Night has fallen quicker than you expected. There’s a fog rolling in. That fog looks the way the fuzz on this record sounds, like there’s a good chance that you could get lost in it and never make it back. You drive into it anyway, because you’ve gotta escape. This is the perfect soundtrack—the B-side, specifically—which kicks off with the plaintive “Hideous Heart.” The yelling seems distant. Maybe if you drive faster, you can get to it, and maybe it will have the answers you need. Or maybe not. Maybe you’ll just have to keep listening.
