In a new segment I'm calling "Lost & Found", I'll be sharing songs that I once had really loved that got lost to the ages for a bit, only to be rediscovered again.
For the first installment, we're going back to 1998 when I was the music director and a DJ at KPSU radio (1450 AM on your dial) at Portland State University. My radio show called "Empty Space & Points Of Light" (based off of a Jeanette Winterson quote from her novel, Sexing The Cherry) was on Monday nights from 6 - 8PM and this was a track from a band called Push Kings that I'd play with a fair frequency. Mostly because it always cheered me up. So here you go: an oldie and goodie, late '90s indie pop style:
P.S. This track came to me via this Darla Records compilation:
“The Hopi, an Indian tribe, have a language as sophisticated as ours, but no tenses for past, present and future. The division does not exist. What does this say about time?
Matter, that thing the most solid and the well-known, which you are holding in your hands and which makes up your body, is now known to be mostly empty space. Empty space and points of light. What does this say about the reality of the world?”
