George Gaudy's expansively dreamy "The Beast" is a slow dance we need

"to catch a glimpse of what they said"

The horrible stories and statistics revolving around Covid 19 has given me stomach aches. The toll taken on Italy's population alone is enough to question if we are in the throes of some Karmic backlash. I have been having trouble focusing on tasks and finding solutions for my current existence ( too hard to explain ) and when I pushed play on George Gaudy's expansively dreamy The Beast tonight, it felt in some way like a sad escape from all of the bad news, an antidote if however brief of the social distancing. It is an evocative slow dance with poetically curious lyrics dripping off of Gaudy's lips, sadly drawn over emotional piano and bass. It is lovely.
