bedroom culture / bedroom dances

February 3rd, 2016

It sounds like you can hear a human being’s fingers all over it. it sounds like bedroom culture. it sounds like something a girl made in her bedroom.

a girl’s bedroom sometimes can be this space of real creativity, the problem is that these bedrooms are all cut off from each other. so how do you take that bedroom that you’re cut off from, to all the other girls who are in their bedroom secretly writing secret things, making secret songs. I wanted the Julie Ruins record to sound like a girl from her bedroom made this record but didn’t just throw it away, or it wasn’t just in her diary but she took it out and shared it with people.
