Yves Tumor – “Limerence”
“Look at the video. It’s recording right now. Bang–!
What? You don’t wanna be on the motherfuckin’ camera?”
Mono No Aware, released by PAN in 2017, may be one of the better compilations of ambient tunes I’ve heard yet. It’s hard to quite describe why this song by Yves Tumor hits so hard, but it’s a go-to for me when I’m in thick in the fog of airport travel and need to shut off from the dazzling spectacle of humanity that is. So, consider it a song to escape the hurtling pace of daily life, and remember the speed of childhood and those formative years where simply sitting and talking to a friend in a bedroom could feel like forever.
