I’ve been re-watching all of HBO’s Game of Thrones episodes this summer with the advantage of two new perspectives. First, I’ve got a fresh set of eyes watching alongside, which is always fun. This time I get to be the pain-in-the-ass hitting pause repeatedly to clarify lineages and house politics. Second, I read all the books recently (prior to the start of season four), so I feel better equipped to make sense of the onscreen displays of those house politics. Nothing better than being a more well informed pain-in-the-ass. Plus, I can better appreciate the glee one feels when watching someone else’s first reaction to The Red Wedding.
So I assume that when scrolling through new tracks and reposted Soundcloud gems, certain song titles just stand out. I’d never have the fortitude to join The Night’s Watch myself, but I can certainly appreciate the honor of the Crows who take their vows seriously.
“I am the sword in the darkness.” Electronic duo 18+ feature a smooth xx vibe, with finger-snapping and crow horns that eat disco roosters for breakfast. Rangers returning. And they’re getting down on the edge of the world, “under night sky.”
