Another week brings us to another installment of A Short Walk. This one is number five, which is, fittingly, also the number of cups of coffee I've had today. Isn't life strange? 

 

As always, this one tries to gather up the threads of the new and the old. Recently added stuff like "Totally Down!!" from Anderson's Jim Jones Jr. is separated by mere minutes from a slice of unreleased throwback from El Nino, and the Betsy Rosses' "Cities," from 2014's Daysides EP peeps out of the wreckage of what Last Four Digits--an Indianapolis punk band from the late 70s and early 80s--wrought (nothing's wrong, nothing's wrong, nothing's wrong). And, of course, there's a track from MFT's latest EP in a Weekend project in there; read more about that whole deal right here

 

There's also, plopped right in the middle, a track called "Romero" from a group who list themselves as The Project on the archive. It's music that is explicitly religious in content, and is a bit different from the stuff I usually find myself repping here on the blog. The "project" such as it is consists of putting music to the prayers of martyrs from through the years. It's got an interesting vibe, and is worth both checking out and noting because of, above all, one thing: MFT is about documenting Indiana music, period. We're not just about that indie rock, punk, and hip-hop game: we're about it all. Check out a video for the track below. 

 

 

This is our life now. We are becoming one with the internet and playlists and blog posts and linked assets are verily coming out our earholes. If you feel the same, commiserate with me via email or Twitter. You may also, during our conversation, feel free to tell me stories, long or short, about what songs you've been attempting to unify with in the context of our increasingly bodiless/digital life experience.
