A couple of weeks ago I posted about Rose Melberg and her new album, Homemade Ship and in that post I sort of talked a little bit about the growth process I went through when it comes to Rose’s music. I first started listening to Gaze in high school when I ordered their Shake the Pounce album, but it wasn’t until I was in college that I really grew to love their music & was because of songs like “Peeking Shows His Ignorance.”
I guess I have this reputation for being sort of uptight/politically correct/whatever, so when my boyfriend caught me listening to this in the car he was like, “Of course you would like this.” As in: of course you, the aforementioned uptight politically correct girl, would be really into a song about the difficult process of calling someone out after they’ve said something questionable/offensive.
And yes, of course I would love it. How could I not love a song with lines like: I guess I’m just typical “university”, typical “older”, “politically correct”? Not since the Parcels’ “Minor Disturbance Grrrl” has a song so closely lined up with my personal sensibilities.
