That Lush song just sent me into a weird tear of nostalgia, searching through boxes for the mixtapes a boy made for me during our brief long-distance romance in the early oughties. I lived in Portland and he was the auxiliary member of a popular Seattle band (notice the pattern) and he had the best taste in French new wave movies and shoegaze music. WE SENT EACH OTHER HAND-WRITTEN LETTERS. The above song was definitely on one of said tapes. I was certain we were getting married. We didn’t! Now he is in a noise band!
