Today’s song is “All Thoughts” by 1st Base Runner. Hailing from Austin, Texas, 1st Base Runner is made up of the solo artist Tim Husman.
This is the latest track off his upcoming full-length album Seven Years of Silence due out late spring.
His outsider vision of melancholy, gothic, and avant-garde is clearly achieved in this track. He is said to have the meticulous work of a Reznor or slow play masters Godspeed You! Black Emperor, wrapping each of his astral post-punk pieces in airy layers of cosmic synthesis.
The song is about life is messy and it’s ok to be vulnerable. Husman says, “It was something that had to be made. I had tried to suppress the concepts and ideas explored in the 8 tracks for several years. It is my willingness to be vulnerable and laid bare before others in an attempt to glimpse some fundamental truths about what it means to be here and to be present. It is an exploration of expectations and shortcomings and how they in turn will make us all the more uniquely human. No one gets out with clean hands, not on this ride, and not in this lifetime.”
Husman has carefully crafted a gritty yet inviting song that is gothic pop meet dance party anthems. It has dark yet airly upbeat and an appeal that makes it a very fun and infectious track.
