Pleased to Meet You Midnight Sister
Jagjaguwar seems to be making a run at some rad bands this week; they dropped Dasher yesterday and today they bring us Midnight Sister. Both are great, but this tune’s got something extra special, falling into the vein of skewed (perhaps avant) pop music. The percussive element almost makes you ill at ease, working more like an experiment than a precision studio beat. This, however, is what makes it so striking, as the group’s playing with modern structures, throwing in small hints of the past and present to draw in listeners. Their debut album drops later on this year, and should make for some pretty special songs.
