realised I hadn’t listened to this for ages.
I was listening to Vulnicura because of the new Björk album announcement, and thinking about (feeling about, really) the production; how it has this feeling of being deeply of the body, but by way of electronic manipulation, right?
like… being in hospital, hooked up to machines, on some heavy painkillers, being operated on. but as an artistic thing, an operation on your metaphysical heart by way of electronic gadgets or whatever.
this doesn’t translate all that elegantly from how I feel it in my mind. but anyway, it made me think of ‘Life is Full of Possibilities’. which is/was obviously post-Homogenic, and contemporaneous of Vespertine. but of all the other records that also existed in that kind of space, this one stands out for me.
