I am listening to Air's "Moon Safari" album, released in 98 (I think). I've got a lot of work to do tonight and surely this will help me through.

I discovered Air for myself in maybe 2001, when I was 16. They were among the first bands that really appealed to me and spoke to me since going through a very angry teenager phase, where I listened to a lot of alternative rock that I hate today, made a point to listen to somewhat obscure music from the 60's and 70's, and also thought that Pink Floyd (angry in its own ways) was the Beginning and End of all that is music.


Air soothed me and opened my mind the exploring different genres of music. Air reminds me of hanging out in my first boyfriend's apartment while his mother wasn't home. Air reminds me of pulling all-nighters in the studio during architecture school. Air makes me remember the smell of my first and second cars. Air got me through my most heart-breaking of breakups at age 19.

Anything that brings you back like that?
