Two Epic Lyricists

Back in March, Domino's press release re Water Curses described Animal Collective's upcoming EP as the "sound of a beaming smile". And I definitely agree-- if this smile was racing through hallucination induced refracted sunlight on speed. Yah.

Listen for yourself:
Animal Collective - Water Curses (mp3)

Purchase the 12" or CD here. These alleged 'leftovers from Strawberry Jam' have been on repeat all morning and I'm still hearing something fresh on every spin.


Now, to cement my credibility in commenting on matters of obscure well-produced music, I present to you my resuscitated fascination: Mariah Carey.

Watching a re-run of SNL last night, I was expecting to flip the channel or wash the dishes while this unfortunate (so I thought at the time) musical guest did her little thang. I don't know if it was the catchy rhythm, her brilliant lyrics, or if I was just hypnotised by those 4 feet bronze stems, but I couldn't break my focus.

Mariah Carey - Touch My Body (mp3)

Temperature up the roof; all up on you; legs wrapped around the body tight like my jeans; YES Mariah, "I want to make him feel like [he] never did" too! YES Mariah, you tell him, don't be taping this shit and putting it on youtube!

not touching that with a 10-foot pole

luckily, the sounds from Water Curses held up... it's too bad Animal Collective can't put out the same quality of music LIVE.

but thank you for reminding me about this band.
time for some Banshee Beat.
