Let’s begin to spiralLet’s begin to spiralOh, you don’t want to spiral with me
A baritone sax woke me up this morning. Woke me up to a song that I’ve listened to countless times, in secret, as the sun rose and set. Let’s begin to spiral. Scrawled on paper on clockless nights. As we built Big Inner, “Big Love” was the rallying cry, the back story, the thesis, the burning technicolor vision of an album that cuts its own mood out of the undulating fabric of Matthew E. White.
Time to mess aroundTime to mess aroundOh, you don’t want to mess around with me
Rising strings, fevered piano, those congas, that choir. This is you balancing on the edge of some wide river. One, two, three. I’ll jump when you jump. When the guitar comes in. Every time he repeats the words, they mean something else, something more.
