Us and Them

Been listening to this amazing cover on repeat these past few days, it helps that the original is a masterpiece. The rest of the album is good too, which I discovered through Spotify. There’s this nagging thought in the back of my head, in regards to all these subscription services like Spotify and Squarespace (I could even go so far as to include a home mortgage), that you pay and pay for the ease of use but in the end you own nothing. I really wonder if the Matrix will come true one day, where in order to use what we need to survive we pay with our bodies.

Anyway, the song is beautiful. They’ve also covered Radiohead’s OK Computer album, and have Horace Andy on there, who sang my all time favourite Massive Attack song Man Next Door.
