Garrincha & the Stolen Elk are a ridiculously good experimental band with enough appeal and short enough track times that even if you are turned off by the 20-minute X tracks late night DJs love so much, there's something for you here.

*1 (7:44) Quiet shades of guitar and soft but heated conversation. Great juxtaposition of two entirely different moods; very chill and down tempo before buzzy electronic organ/guitar/noise/mess comes in and makes everything really fuzzy.
*2 (6:45) Darker, brooding, beautiful. Garbled vocal samples, an air of intensity. Goes from contemplative to angry futuristic WWII German to electric guitar machine gun before fading out quietly.
3 (3:22) Very quiet; choral, aquarium, bubbling, humming, sad brass (the instruments themselves are sad). Atari 2600 Pitfall on 90s sound system.
4 (5:31) Quiet, desolate, humming, the third third is an anti-climatic conclusion to a witch hunt
**5 (8:24) Beautiful, beautiful fuzzy static synth track, requires some patience but reflects all kinds of moods: nostalgia, anxiety, fear, drowning (definitely a mood), relief, and more. If you play an X track this week, make it this one.
