I can’t quite put my finger…or ear?…on what it is about this song by The Dig that just puts me at ease. Is it the minimal percussion? That bass line that carries the heart beat of the entire song? The ambient, space-like sounds in the background? The repetitive, rolling nature of this 5 minute track wrapped in a slow build, tied off with the unique vocal quality that strings along every song? I think I’ve come to the conclusion that there is not any one thing that makes this song what it is but I have to admit, it is a song that I can listen to over and over and over again.
“I Already Forgot Everything You Said” is off of New York-based, four man band, The Dig’s, first full length album, ‘Midnight Flowers.’ I usually don’t do this but I fell so hard for “I Already Forgot Everything You Said” that I bought ALL of their music in one sitting and it was absolutely worth it.
“Angeline” (below) is off of their EP, ‘Tired Heart.’ Dark and lazy but simultaneously driving…This version is the live version from their Audiotree session back in 2013. It really takes off at about 2:45.
‘You & I’ is their most recently released EP and houses this gem, “Cold Afternoon”:
