I really enjoyed this article by Grayson Haver Currin on his long-term relationship with The National:
While Grayson's story and path are different than mine, I can relate to how his taste for The National's music shifted based on taste, time, and place, and reading about it led to many questions. Would I still love Wussy if I had not moved to Cincinnati? How about Velocity Girl, who I happened to see at a music festival in DC in 1993? How many bands do I love because I fell in love with someone that was a fan?
Do you have artists you have fallen out of love with over time? Have you ever circled back to them with renewed appreciation?Tune in betweeen 12:00 and 1:00pm today for songs from some of my long-term musical relationships 🤘💞🤘
