about

My favorite architect.

lyrics

what’s the meaning of this complex here?
what’s the point of this free space?
it is true, all the people want is open fields
this is true, not to share but to possess for themselves
reinforced concrete walls don’t age well
reinforced concrete homes
impractical
you did not give in to ignorance
Unités d’Habitation
what a gesture of kindness
Chandigarh rises from the dust of India
Chandigarh cracks in the hot sun
reinforced concrete walls don’t age well
the consequences of being bold
reinforced concrete homes
pre-stressed
you would not submit to the visionless
made a scale from the human form
proportioned to the Golden
modular, liberate us from metric minds
modular, practical and beautiful
reinforced concrete walls don’t age well
reinforced concrete homes
precious

“Rainstick Cowbell makes searing music that’s intensely personal…[from] intense, clear-eyed rants to unhinged exorcisms. It’s exhilarating to hear music this raw.”
