Generation Why

October 21, 2016 Mexican Summer

Order Front Row Seat To Earth available now on LP / CD

A hymn to what may be our extinction, and our luxuriating in that abyss’ edge, “Generation Why” carries its lyrical profundity lightly, buoying it on the soft tide of Natalie Mering’s Enya-filtered cosmic folk. Like much of Front Row Seat To Earth, the song’s aching melody and deeply layered music express the anguish of our hubristic moment, where technology, climate change, and new conceptions of the human all blend together, producing a truly modern cosmology: accepting the impermanence of our existence as it truly should be, a beautiful thing.
