They always said Grateful Dead’s “American Beauty” was the album that could change the way you thought. Actually alter the spectrum in which your mind actively behaved. Dismantling the normal thought process and smashing it into a tiny million pieces. And while I’m not the person who will begin to compare such legends of an era to a newwave, chillwave, semi-dance/trance music – Twin Shadow and their song Forget – I can still physically and mentally understand how the two are so alike on their separate, infinite musical planes.
Forget by Twin Shadow alters my mind, albeit how NORML-Y enhanced it is and was experiencing. I literally would nestle myself in all the dreamy analogies this song would allow. It’d be like waking up on your best pillow scented by your favorite man. The kind of nighttime slumber song we listen to on our heels atop my bed, stoned and singing as the night drifts into our dreams.
