I'm listening to Kites are Fun by The Free Design.

I don't listen to this one often, because it is an album with absolutely nothing to say.

But it's absolutely gorgeous, meticulously recorded and mixed, super clean and warm. Beautiful and empty.

That was delightful and empty. Perfect way to round out the day.

Maybe later I'll listen to the Critters, a band which featured many of the same production values and techniques, but who had slightly more to say (even if that slightly more was "I like women")

I means, seriously, who calls a damn album "kites are fun"

Yeah, they're fun.

We get it.

They're a toy for children.

They are not a subject for a 4 minute song, when you don't have anything more lyrically interesting to say than "Kites are fun" repeated several times.
