"delice de nostalgie" means "madly with nostalgia" or also "delusional nostalgia," depending on which language you choose in google translate. it is a type of cheese. have you ever had a memory you later discovered was completely fabricated? or maybe a dream so vivid you didn't realize it was a dream until you told someone else the story? often when i taste something new it will freeze me in time; my knees will lock and i'll have no problems, no thoughts. it is a type of rapture, though maybe the word rapture is hyperbolic. clarity i guess, it's a moment when you are simply present and keenly aware. maybe i lack the words.
i'm trying to convey what this recording means to me and finding myself frustrated because i don't know how to describe it. to me it is representative of both that moment of "clarity" but also the isolation of the moment, the exclusively personal sensation of the taste, the thought, the etc. somewhere around the age of 30 i felt like my shitty life and frequent pains shifted into a form of bliss. this record and the sounds i make echo that bliss for me - a big mess of ear shred and blown signal, bible salesmen and meditation experts, puerto rican punks and their alcoholic in-laws...sound and fury, pungent and rank as a slab of cheese, all signifying nothing (of course). please play loudly, preferably while sleeping but shit it's yr life, don't let me tell ya what to do.
