NOT A PICTURE OF MY FRIENDS

"Blood is Clean" by Valet is the captivator of the summer. It's the jam of, as Joan Didion wrote in "The White Album", "uneasy symbiosis". Honey Owens singing deathknell harmonies with a train whistle is same as J.D.'s "I remember a babysitter telling me she saw death in my aura. I remember chatting with her about reasons why this might be so, paying her, opening all the French Windows and going to sleep in the living room." Honey sighs Squeaky Fromme's best pick up lines over scorched blooze: "My blood is clean / but the devils in me". Real/creepy.
