I've been finding lately that the music I was listening to, or making in 2004 can either lift me up and make me so happy or compeletly destroy me for days. It was probably the best year of my life, Honestly. It was when I was at my happiest and probably at my most despressed. It was the first time I got to be on my own completely. January 1st I got in my shitty 1983 Chevy Caprice with just a few mix cds with my dad following behind me in the UHaul that was packed with all of my belongings, and we headed south to Orlando.
I met some people during this year that even though I don't really talk to much, still mean more to me than people I've known my whole life. They became second family. I was free. I finally escaped the hollowed out remains of the once booming coal mining area, that I had dreamed about for so long. I spent many night in my apartment with my disc changer on repeat and just read books or chatted online, but some of these albums bring back some of the best members in no particular order here are a few.

Okay so that was a bit more than a few, and sure you may be saying to yourself thats a shitload of post rock. My music collection was ALOT and i mean ALOT! smaller than it is now, and it post rock didnt even really make its peak until 2007ish before it started dying. These are all still pretty landmark albums to me.
Like most of my posts this had an ending a clear destination but I get side tracked to fast and I lose it.
I'm just in a mood and Sigur Ros' ( ) is currently destroying me.
