Penguin Cafe, "Ricercar"

Remember when it mattered what day it was?

Here is the lead track from the new Penguin Cafe record, which is one of the few things that brings me joy these days, to the extent that I am able to experience joy at all. As is the case with everything your own appreciation will not doubt differ based on personal history and aesthetic preference but I hope it is able to bring you even a small amount of the pleasure I have found in it, which, as previously mentioned, is an amount always mediated by my chronic inability to feel much of anything other than numbness and the overpowering sense of futility that these days carry with them in every waking moment. Enjoy.
