Música que va con recuerdos. Bueno, música que va con ese VHS en el que sales comiéndote un pastel con la forma de una pelota de baseball, en tu primer torneo de karate (en el que te dan una medalla aunque te peguen una paliza los de Cobra Khan), en la bici que te regalaron y de la cual te caíste y te partiste una paleta (y parecías entre estúpido e idiota). No sé, aunque nada de eso me ha pasado a mí, este temazo me han evocado todo eso y más (esos años de instituto también). Jim Hewitt es de Allston o lo que es lo mismo, Boston y ya lleva unos cuantos lanzamientos como un Split con Qualms que es puro amor adolescente o un 7″ ,Change of Pace,  que suena a niñas y a cosas prohibidas o Underground (bufffff). Lo que sabe hacer este señor son melodías efectivas, pegadizas y sencillas que dan en el clavo. Vaya, tan emocionantes como los cigarros que te fumabas en el cuarto de baño pensando que eras un malote.

This music goes well with any of your memories. You know, that kind of music that you could listen while watching that old VHS where you appear eating that baseball shaped cake or taking part in that karate tournament (where you’d get a medal even if the guys from Cobra Khan pulverized you or riding your first bike just before falling from it and broke on of your incisors (that make you look something in between dorky and stupid). Well, none of this happened to me, but this awesome track made me remember all of this as if it really happened (all those high school years too).  Jim Hewitt lives in Allston and he has already made some releases like one split with Qualms, which is pure teen love,  and a 7″, Change Pace, that it sounds like girls and forbidden things or the single Underground (bufffffffffff) . What this young man does is a superb job in creating simple, but very effective and catchy melodies. They’re as exciting as those cigarettes you smoked in the bathroom because they made you look tough.
