A Moment of Silence with The Neighbourhood

Hola chicos 🙂

Hope you’ve been well!

Glad to say it’s the weekend and I just submitted an assessment, woop woop. I now have at least the rest of the day to relax before I need to start my next lot of assessments.

The other day a friend of mine suggested I check out The Neighbourhood’s latest album Wiped Out!

I’ve always liked The Neighbourhood, although I was selective about which songs I listened to. Mainly from their I’m Sorry… EP and their I Love You album. Both these albums are described as alternative/indie/pop rock. Their newest album (2015) incorporates more experimental rock and psychedelic vibes as well.

The opening track kind of caught me by surprise; it was actually quite funny. It’s called A Moment of Silence. And it’s literally just that, a moment of silence which lasts 30 seconds. It sort of reminds me of John Cage’s 4’33” from 1952, where his entire ‘piano’ composition was to sit there in silence and let the audience hear all the sounds around them. I can’t imagine that people would actually buy 30 seconds worth of silence.

This is honestly such a moody album. The more I listen to it, the more addicted I get. If you’re deep in thought or in a really chilled mood, highly recommend. I like pretty much all the tracks, especially The Beach and R.I.P 2 My Youth. But if you want a pick-me-up kind of album, this isn’t it.
