It trawls at the speed of a tractor, a content tune whistling out amongst the worm-eating birds. You can’t fathom exactly what the boy sitting in the tractor is saying, it sounds full of intent and almost despair. But it’s organised and a well recorded despair that wouldn’t get you down but rather stir a willing urge to walk about. Swinging about like a playground swing rusting to almost disintegration, you reach the end of this song feeling a content sympathy and affection. But then you’re listening to something else.
Horse Feathers – Finch On Saturday
So it seems fitting to bring in another track onto this tuesday post.
The point is, Foster The People work on your average stirring and quicken your tempo to slightly more intentive motives. I like the following bass guitar that climbs up and abseils down briskly. The tune and the lyrics are brisk themselves; all these “other kids” are falling behind. It’s a fish net song, you what I mean yeah? It just depends how big the holes are in this catchy net, I’ll soon find out… But for now I’m enticed. Just so much pumped up spirit – don’t you think?
