"Cuckoo Crow"

Mixes classical strings and brass with wailing vocals and noisy, clash "Animal Collective" sound with great success. This album has loads of interesting textures. Tracks 3 - 7 slow way down into ghostly anthems that sound alot like "Bjork". By track 7, this theme gets old, but track 8 finishes off with a fast clash finale. No FCC's detected

1) (6:14) Starts with a fast mix of viola, electronic glitch, and pattering vocals. Slows down at 2:05 to incorporate slow, wailing female vox. Finishes with the sounds of crows, ticking strings, and tenor sax.

2) (6:47) Fast track with noise vocals: Fast japanese female vox with frantic metal grunts from the male vox, all accompanied by creeping strings and marimbas. Great Track!

3) (4:12) Very slow track with breather male vox. Rolling cello. Very forlorn.

4) (6:15) Very slow song with phantasmal vox and a nice melody. Baby accordion makes an appearance.

5) (12:09) Slowest track of all, choir-like vocals with a Persian sound toward the end.

6) (6:35) Very slow track with a traditional Asian feel. Echoing vocals

7) (8:44) Still slow, whispering vox: annoying.

8) (2:19) Pure clash with brass and string.
