There’s a time for happy songs, sunshine and general good cheer. And then there comes a time when it’s best to sit and stare pensively out a dirty window at bleak, rain-soaked landscapes and ponder the meaning of human existence in an uncaring universe. Krystina Hutchinson has had plenty of both; enough to know that sometimes it feels good to feel bad. After all, unrelenting self-reflection and brutal honesty are hallmarks of her stand-up, as well as the key ingredients in making her podcast, Guys We Fucked, one of the most successful and widely respected of all time. And what better theme music is there to those moments of dark ruminations on love and misery than the soulless soul music of Echo and the Bunnymen’s 1981 sophomore release Heaven Up Here?
