Uncluded - "Hokey Fright"
As soon as something is described to me as "quirky" I'm out...I can't hang. I immediately picture the most ironic of hipsters praising their latest bootleg of Tuvan throat singing while wearing some obnoxious pastel t-shirt announcing to the world that they "run on puppy power...quirky indeed
This record will probably be described as quirky by the blogosphere but please friends, do NOT let that turn you off.
This is probably the most lyrically well-crafted album to grace my ears so far this year. Kimya Dawson's gentle, quasi-innocent words dance around the gruff verbal maypole that Aesop Rock has firmly planted into a musical landscape that could easily be straight from the pages of the brothers Grimm.
Humor twirls with sadness, introspection bows to sharp observation, minutea has meaning...this record is deeper than it appears yet it can easily be put on as background music to make heads bob.
TLDR? - Magic words from Kimya Dawson and Aesop Rock.
Here's some randoms I'm giggling about today.
So no doubt you guys saw that Brazillian elevator prank with the Samara-esque chick sneaking up on unsuspecting folks? The guys who did that just put another totally mean, yet totally funny prank video up.
This is how I roll....not giving a single F***...ever. Just running my game and following the fun.
Couple of rad tunes that I'm on about...some old some new...
So I'm out all next week...be good while I'm gone.
