Single featuring the sparkly remix of the Lusterlit song "Flight", written for The Bushwick Book Club, inspired by THE FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE by Jonathan Lethem, and originally from the LIST OF EQUIPMENT EP. "Flight Remix" is an electronic celebration of love and magic and elevation with pounding beats, grinding bass, synth glitter and Susan Hwang's dazzling voice.
Flight… get off the ground
The boys just want to get off the ground
And even if he never flew,
he always has the birds eye view,
the things he saw, no one ever knew.
All the things he kept from you--
it was a form of love.
A place where Mingus Rude
made the space that always grooved.
Fat, slapped pitches,
born home runs.
We all pine for those middle spaces
when Josephine Baker lay waste to Paris.
When bothered blue peaked on the charts.
When a teenaged Elvis sat in Sun
Studios watching the Prisonairs.
Her mistake was so beautiful, so stupid, so American.
Abraham tried to carve it on a daily basis, making his middle.
Where the art is in the middle.
Where the songs are in the middle.
Green triangle in the middle.
The ring keeps you in the air, in the middle.
Reach for the spaldeen in the middle.
Reach for the wanting in the middle.
Reach for the summer never ending
Reach for the touch you were imagining
Reach for somewhere, you’ll never get there
and you'll realize what you just liked
was the feeling of the wind in your hair.
I want to be in it; in the -ing.
The ring to take you to the -ing.
In the happening,
not the happened.
In the getting,
not the got.
In the wanting,
not the used to.
In the flying,
not the flew.
In the knowing,
not the knew.
In the flowing
you came for the flowing.
Follow your Ooo.
You came for the flowing.
