…Since the beginning of time, I have been searching for a job. A real job, a good, fulfilling, enjoyable, meaningful job that I can call a real career. Maybe it’s a pipe dream, but I have convinced myself that I am going to find a job that I’m going to completely love. One of those “not your ordinary workplace” type of jobs in a cool environment with smart, funny, progressive thinking, coworkers working together to create, market, produce, advertise, cook, bake, build, make, design…whatever it is that they do.
I’ve come across a few of these companies/businesses in my search but it wasn’t until about a week ago that I found out that Carrot Creative was hiring. This Brooklyn, NY based full service social media agency exudes all of the qualities of the type of company I dream of working for. Progressive, different, Smart, with enjoyable atmosphere. You know “hip” and “cool”. Well, I’m hip(?), I’m cool (?), (right?).
Since they are quite progressive and forward thinking, their hiring process is quite different from your average “send us your resume and cover letter and if you happen to know somebody who works here maybe we’ll get back to you” type of business. Right on their website they say they get lots of applications, and if you want to “stand out from all the noise, figure out how to get our attention”.
So Carrot Creative. That’s what I’m doing. I’m calling you out!
I don’t really get it.. I mean, I do like a lot of weird and possibly, some may say, crappy music.
Usually I am completely into lo-fi spacey, woozy beats and dreamy singing and even some of this “witch house” stuff that I can put on and drift off to sleep but most of this album does not do anything for me. I think it’s the fact that there are a lot of “droney” no-direction noise moments and I absolutely hate drone music.
I will say there are a few good tracks on here, “Romantic Streams” I actually really like a lot. Lead single “Casual Diamond” and “Stickers” are pretty good, as well as some other moments (Flying Saucers Are Real) but the album as a whole doesn’t do all that much for me.
Am I wrong? Does anyone feel differently?
If I keep listening to it maybe I’ll change my mind. If there are 10 songs and maybe 5 are good and 5 are bad is the album okay then? I think I’m losing my mind.
EDITOR’S NOTE: typically here at What’s Protocol? we pride ourselves on not ever dishing out bad reviews, we won’t write about it at all if our feelings are anywhere in the negative realm. But, in this instance bFunk isn’t bashing the album, rather he is asking our readers their own take on the Sleep ∞ Over’sForever. We know that everyone’s ears and taste are never the same (that’s the beauty) but the difference here is that bFunk is open to suggestions, open to hearing other’s opinions on this album and readily and willing to accept them. While at times some of the other contributor’s music they chose to feature is something I wouldn’t necessarily download for my own iTunes library I thoroughly enjoy what they have to say. So, help our boy out. Why should he listen and enjoy the Forever album? – lindsey
