For You Always by Minor Victories on the album Minor Victories. I think it’s the album I’ve listened to more than any other over the last few years, but that song always gets skipped.
Apparently Pitchfork in their review of the album described the song as ‘at once completely out of place, completely obnoxious, and completely welcome’. This is accurate apart from the last bit.
This song is the worst on the album, and it is also the point Mark Kozelek makes a guest appearance. I don’t know any of the rest of his work but he comes across unpleasantly in this song, which is apparently supposed to be a recollection of the friendship between Rachel Gosling and himself.
It makes references to him showing up to each gig with a different redhead under his arm, and how he played his show and ‘slept with some ho’. The nicest thing he can find to say about her, apart from looking great, is that she didn’t laugh at his underwear, which should be an obligation for any two people who share affections for each other in my opinion.
I’m a bit riled just thinking about this song to be honest. It helps that the following two songs are absolutely sublime.
