Night Time, My Time

Sky Ferreira’s 2013 album Night Time, My Time is one of the few pop records I have returned to consistently since it came out. Major props for referencing David Lynch’s Fire Walk With Me

About a year and a half I was in Kyoto, Japan.  I was walking back to the hotel solo and I started to take a shortcut through a mall.  Ferreira has a song called Omanko in which she sings about a Japanese Christmas.  I will never forget coming up an elevator and seeing a giant Japanese Christmas display while that song played.  It was one of those times when the music you happen to be listening to and your surroundings find complete synchronicity.  The snow and costumes were the same as ours.  However, most of the characters in those costumes looked like they were from The Legend of Zelda.  I often wonder if other countries are as befuddled with our Holiday characters, as I was with theirs?  Who knows such things…
