Dallas Green


if you are "the poetic type" you will remember your attempts to express and write down, what is inside, back in the summer you first noticed, that the weather can be a "fantastic" metaphor for your feelings. gah. personally i feel vicarious embarrassment for myself, if i ever stumble upon those early works, and realize the triviality of my words.
then there is Dallas: he basically uses the same words, ideas and pictures. everything as trivial as is gets. from the chords he plays to the lyrics he sings - even the name of his soloproject City and Colour is just the simple description of Dallas Green.
the only difference: he is amazingly brilliant.
with City and Colour, he was one of the first to be featured on myspace transmissions; back in the days myspace was still alive and important. nevertheless, you should watch the videos of this session.
