And darling I’m lost, I heard you whisper…

This one surprised me… I knew Margot & The Nuclear So & Sos were good and all, but I don’t remember them knocking my ass down or anything. So when Not Animal (apparently, the record label’s desired album, as opposed to Animal, the band’s album?? I don’t know, whatever, can’t worry about that) showed up online, I pushed play with moderate-to-whatever expectations for my ride in this morning, WHICH, by the way, was much colder than I anticipated (I guess my expectations were off for a lot of things today, ha!) and I rode with frozen hands, arms, and feet! Guess I’m going to Dick’s (hehehe…. dick’s) tonight for some winter gear.

Anyways… MTNSS (because I don’t want to write that name out 40 times), wow. The album is reaping with subtleties, just beautiful pop, often fragile, sometimes lazy (not in a bad way, in a great way, a Wilco kinda way), sometimes quiet, sometimes a bit noisy, and it just unfolds on you, then wraps around your head, devours your brain & takes over your body to wreak havoc on the fellow starship passengers until you are finally shot down, dead, in the final climactic scene (oh, wait, that might be going a little too far, a little too Alien, but you get the idea, right? You’re one of the smart ones). Longest run-on sentence ever? I think I’ve written worse…

Regardless, just wonderful… And this is the album the band didn’t want to release? Can’t wait to hear the other (I read it’s getting the vinyl release… WOOT!). Okay, hop to it, listen up, and then go grab this one…

Margot & The Nuclear So And So’s – 03 Broad Ripple Is Burning

Broad ripple is burning
and the girls are getting sick
of huffing glue up
in the bathroom
while your boyfriends pick up chicks
And darling I’m lost
I heard you whisper
that night in fountain square
the trash-filled streets
made me wish we waited home….

Margot & The Nuclear So And So’s – 04 Holy Cow!

Go show Margot and his or her radioactive something somethings all your tender love here and here now!
