lickety split oddcast no. 3
LICKETY SPLIT IN YOUR EARS
you should totally download side b
hot! and annotated!
i was playing this in the office the other day and of the new kid was all like "ahhh yess... t.b sheets,.. a clASSic!" and i stopped and stared at him with this pathetic expression on my face because he'd just casually labeled one of the most emotional songs in my life like he was naming bugs by their latin names. such detached appreciation. good god. everytime i listen to this song my girlfriend dies of tuberculousys and a little part of me crumbles to his knees. everytime.
i like weird spacey noises and this is a damn good slab of that stuff. the magik markers came into the record store i work at to sell us their album and i put it on immediately while they wandered around for like 45 minutes which was really kinda weird now that i think about it
WE WILL BOMB YOU
i love the bassline in this song. plus i find it funny that you can play two modern oddpop bands on top of eachother and noone can really tell where one ends and the other begins.
WHO BY FIRE
i was walking down st. laurent street and a buncha people waiting for the bus all back away from some guy in a trenchcoat who i naturally look at and he looks so familiar that excitedly i blurt "holy shit it's mr. spock" to the giggles of everyone and he smirks and walks away and it was only a few blocks later that i realized it was leonard cohen and i was an idiot. meanwhile this song is so poignant it's probably what dying sounds like.
A DAY IN THE LIFE/ WEIRD FOLK STORY BY IKE REIKO
i like the idea of an alternate universe where the beatles live in japan all bloated and jam in pachinko parlours seven times a day, really just kinda joshing around and having fun, like the hamburg days, but in crazy old japan
LET IT WIN
more clipd beaks. i like songs that feel like places, and this is a good one. perhaps running out of gas in the mountains somewhere. thought the simmering guitar stuff underneath makes me believe its more like hard drugs and cruel war and alice in chains vigils
SLEEPWALK/ BAD CRAZINESS IN PALM BEACH (exert)
this is the point of the oddcast: synergy, that magic unpredictability of the assemblage of stuff
