Ok so I admit to obsessing about this whole Electric Miles thing and it’s getting way out of hand because it’s been like three days now and I can’t seem to listen to anything else or focus on actual life plans or even attempt the simple things like checking my socks for holes because who knows where those holes actually lead to because they are, of course, rabbit holes but those are not the ones worth chasing because Miles is the only one worth following down any sort of rabbit hole, worm hole, black hole…
You still with me?
So I’m one step away from total abandon and I’m certain that’s what Miles was after with this funky sunship of a repertoire he sailed through during the years 1970 to 1975.
Take just one more step and edge up to the cliff and see where that leads you.
And of course it only leads out, not down, because this exploration in tone and timbre is all gravitational pull and supernova explosions and don’t you be afraid of being sucked in and expanded upon because you only have this one physical space to call your own and wouldn’t it be something to be like truly radiant, just for once?
Whatever Miles was after (and up to) he found it and came back with something unholy, unnamed, unguarded, unfathomed, undefined, unhinged, uncontaminated, uncontrolled, un-fucking-real…
So take a trip through an ever-expanding star system and float among the gods…but only if you can find the records…
