If you're not familiar with K. Flay, don't worry, you will be. Flay is a rapper. An artist. A stanford graduate. And a white woman.
That last part shouldn't be something I have to mention, and I almost wish I hadn't. K. Flay is becoming a force to be reckoned with in the indie rap scene and I feel that in that particularly diverse genre of music, expectations should be left at the door. But she's kicking that door down, pressing it into vinyl and spinning something you haven't heard before.
Today's song, Nothing at All, is reflective of my current state of mind. I'm treading water, and I'm not really happy doing so. While Flay's track is a little more positive on the subject of coasting, it still reflects that depressed apathetic state that we've all been in. More than any generation before us, I think it's become easy to just get by. And we need to get the fuck out of that state of mind. The technology that has put us in that place is just as useful for getting out of there as it was to put us in it in the first place.
That was a disjointed little commentary on what takes place in my own head. Enjoy the song.
