contemporary art, culture and criticism from a Jewish-Eskimo in the Pacific Northwest.
Rewind from Gentleman Reg's new album Jet Black is one of those tracks that reduces a person to rubble within the first verse. I full admit that when I first the track I burst into tears. It's one of those great wrist slasher ballads that you feel devastated by yet compelled to listen to again and again identifying all those stolen moments from your past that apply, then fall like grains of sand through your out stretched hands. Sorry for the hyperbole but it's that kind of song, really. I don't "LOVE" the video as much but it seems appropriately low-key and to be honest that's fine because I had just recently posted Gentleman Reg's video for This Is How We Exit from the same album- he's just cranking out the singles.
