♫♪  Dylan Ettinger - “Endeavor”

I love this line from David Morris’ review of Dylan Ettinger’s New Age Outlaws:

Like so much of the new psych, New Age Outlaws is less about imagining than about remembering what it was like to imagine.

It’s true; in the past year or so a lot of time has been spent on memory — personal, collective, societal, distorted, old, new, fabricated memories, displayed abstractly through hazily appropriated retro sound and visual art. The question still remains: will this peering backwards through a skewed looking glass create an unrecognizable future? Or will we just re-frame the past as our present until the difference, musically, between them has lost its meaning?
