That slow intro with the guitar and drums is super awesome. When the song kicks in with the vocals and a funky upbeat rhythm is really fresh and fun. There is something about the groove of the song that is a bit on the carny side. In a way it makes me think of some of the old Alice Cooper stuff. It’s just a bit punkish in the way it kinds spits in the face of conventional musical composition. There are a lot of change ups in the tempo, something I always approve of. The vocals are straight up punk style with the sneer you can hear. The guitar work really backs up the noncommittal nature of the music, but the lyrics sing a different tune.
This song was really cool to listen to. I think I would like to put it on a playlist with some of my other funky songs like Cats are Cooler then Dogs and There’s No Sadness Holding and Ice Cream. These songs are so different from what I normally listen to and that makes them cool as hell. Trippy rhythms and often funny or sarcastic lyrics are always something I enjoy.
