…but my hands remember hers.

A school in Brazil had all its students protesting after a transgender girl got reprimanded after changing into a female uniform. All the students, including the boys, wore a skirt to school on September 1st in a way to show support to the girl, who still can’t wear her female uniform but the school says that they’re “reviewing the code of conduct.”

I passed a homeless man on my way home tonight and I gave him some change from my wallet. I spent the remaining dollar and seventy cents in change on bananas from a bodega where I know the cashiers and they can tell when I’m drunk because I look at my feet when they ask if I would like a bag, paper or plastic. I told the man on the sidewalk to have a good night and he stuffed the bill in a cup and also looked down at his own feet. part of the time I am convinced I am looking straight ahead, more so now than this time a year ago, but I know most of us are more attuned to the ground than to anything else. it’s easy to look down and it’s easy to look over a shoulder and it’s easy to bend at the command of a memory. mine are murky and not because I can’t remember, but the details fudge together and what is more important over the course of thirty-six months: an inpatient hospitalization, a broken parent, a sum of debt, a legal battle, personal health and wellness, an academic record, a grocery shopping list? the right conversation at the right time? a crosswalk signal? I say yes more than I say no lately, at least that’s how it feels, and I feel more full. yet I feel just as dull around the edges, even at the peak of place or a person or a thing. I tap my wrist and say “stop doing all of this” or “start doing more of that” and it’s fruitless, I’m inexperienced and stupid and I have no idea what I’m doing! I want to grow up, I’m terrified, or I want to be ignorant, I’m very calm. this is all over the place and it’s a place I can’t quite place. not necessarily near a home but in pursuit of a balanced ideal. fruitless, sure, and satisfactory at best. how am I doing?

Yesterday, FKA Twigs stopped by BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge, a space where pop artists oftentimes cover the work of their peers, while also infusing their own perspective and musical elements. The 26 year old English singer, producer and dancer of Jamaican, English and Spanish descent, covered Sam Smith’s wildly successful hit record “Stay With Me”.

In the same vein as this delicate, breathy and moody rendition of Sam Smith, FKA Twigs’s debut album, LP1, released last month, fuses elements of popular R&B vocals and instrumentals, with sophisticated electronic synths, cowbells and drums. For LP1, she collaborated with a handful of pioneers in the electronic industry, including Arca, Clams Casino, and Paul Epworth—which undoubtably primed her for creative success. Her siren-like voice, laced with experimental electronic production sounds like what pop music should sound in the future. Personally, my favorite is Lights On (produced by Arca).
