I had a discussion about death last night with a friend. Well, it wasn’t directly about death, but rather a conversation about other topics – natural disasters, moving, trying to find a new job – that oftentimes carry underlinings of fate, the uncomfortable shadow of inevitable decay.

Thankfully, TalkingCity1994 are around to throw a water balloon in my face and tell me “Life Goes On.” For subject matter that could be melodramatic, this Osaka band sure has delivered with a skip in their step and cheap-ass synths blaring – the whole song sounds goofy about the truth and that ends up being…really welcome.
