my brain is bubbling over with half-cocked ideas of the line from d’angelo’s “untitled” to ray charles’ atlantic records output, because i’ve been listening to nothing but those two for the past three days. there are offshoots to marvin gaye & prince & the isley brothers, sure.
i wish i could get my thoughts together and produce a cohesively written music piece. sadly, i fear it would just come out as a bedroom you tube clip of me playing songs through shitty speakers and yelling into a webcam, “CAN’T YOU HEAR IT?? IT’S RIGHT THERE!! LISTEN TO THAT - CAN’T YOU HEAR IT?”“
