Go Slowly

oh m______
come slowly
come slowly
to me
ive been waiting
i didnt get it
but now I can see

Pitchfork: So there's not a constant cloud hanging over the band in terms of repeatihttp://www.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gifng yourselves or others?

CG: No. There's a song we're playing called "Go Slowly" and there's a bit in the middle that breaks and it's really violent, and I reckon there's an R.E.M. song that's somewhat similar. But references like that are emotional ones that are tied to your memory of other peoples' great music. By now, you accept your limitations. And as you get older you realize how important your emotional response is to any kind of music-- from the new Autechre to "Dragonfly" by Fleetwood Mac-- and how that can inform what you make next. It's the most important thing and it's easy to forget that and think, "Oh, this is new and happening."
