Today Kate NV shares “Plans”, the third offering from her forthcoming album Room for the Moon. The video, directed by Kate and Pavel Kling, is best described as a hallucinatory news report.
In Kate’s own words: “The song is about how everything constantly collapses and changes, that nothing is really clear and that it is impossible to plan everything or anything.” Written before the present world crisis, the song’s surreal dissociation as presented through Kate’s pop proficiency is prescient of this moment if not peculiar: “Who would tell us what it was like before it turned to this. Who would outline the plans.”
for this month’s episode of friends & fiends on NTS, e ruscha v supplied us w/ a mix “made with the intention of personal or communal lucid dreaming. play just before the extended intersection of wake and sleep.”
