Robbi Robb - In Time
I went to see Autre Ne Veut last night in Chinatown. During the last song my fried mind slipped and fell into nostalgic hallucination and I started humming the words to “In Time” along to ANV’s “Gonna Die.”
Robb lacks that grizzled delivery that’s making Arthur a star, but there’s something of the appreciable epic that makes “In Time” feel relevant here. It’s something that could only be captured in a movie about the excellent adventure of two stoned high school students, a story that is framed around the loose premise that even though they are terrible musicians presently, they will eventually write music with a cosmic power that will align the planets and create universal harmony.
Smooth blue futures, ultimate potential, late 80s astral projection, and the unbearable urge to hug people or cry every time I hear this song. That is all that I know.
