RIYL: The Unicorns, old White Stripes, Neutral Milk Hotel
try: 3, 6, 2, 10
1. weird surround-sound noise for the first ~10 sec. then super-relaxed synth lines and drawly vox. gentle backing uke and fuzzy outburst electric. nice water-bubbly shimmery bridge.
*2. relaxed, midtempo. lazy-by-the-pond sound... with lyrics about floating around in space. uke, vibraslap, bells. gentle, drifty, super chill. ‘la’s.
*3. bouncy fast rockin’ old-LA sound. pink cadillac, etc. gots that shimmer guitar! nice stripped-down vox.
4. nuts! accordion! horns! lasers! noise! bursts into luau country sway (whistles, steel guitar) with, erm, an unexpected storyline: “she forgot the safety word and now she’s dead.” oh dear.
5. slow, lilty, dramatic, slow dance pomp. accordion, uke, etc. the title says it all: ship’s going down, let’s fuck in the crow’s nest.
*6. glammy! fast gakk guitar, woo-woo backing vox, finger snaps. dance like an idiot! breakup revenge plot afoot.
7. slooo-mooo. a nodder. really, reeeally mellow. sleepy, saddish, shimmery.
8. ~30 sec intro. then: distant quick chord-hit saloon piano. echoey, fuzzy. female vox. nice pomp bass. sounds like carousel music.
9. slow, shimmery, sustain. female vox. twaaang. slow open hi-hat kit. tightens up a minute in with a cute indie rock melody. builds into a little sonatra opera. could fade out the last whole minute, if desired.
*10. funny folky mid-slow banjo + acoustic narrative about dying and waiting to get into heaven. feelin’ the white stripes. sounds like a good old southern christian revival hymnal. builds up into a great steel + bells + washboard honker. “they told me i’d be fine and the very next day i died!”
11. ~45 sec of silence (start 6:00 to end). then: slow 80s synth, warm lasers and hilarious falsetto. lost soft rock hit of the... no, never mind. this is actually great.
