“Sometimes I stand on my roof at night”

The Dismemberment Plan – “The City” from Emergency & I (1999)

If the ‘Mats are the sound of teenage angst, the Plan is the sound of early-twenties malaise. At a D-Plan show I attended, Travis Morrison announced to a lucky birthday girl: “24 is the worst age. You just start to realize what a selfish idiot you’ve been since age 19, but you can’t do anything yet to change it.”

Feel like the breeze can pick you up and carry you away?
