Earlier this week (August 24, 2009), I was listening to music in my car on the way to work and I came across an album I had acquired but had not yet given an appropriate amount of time to. I proceeded to listen to it all day and tweet my thoughts [now annotated!]:
8:42 am – Cryptacize‘s new album finally blew my mind this morning; I think I’ll tweet about it all day.
9:45 am – I think Cryptacize’s Chris Cohen could solve The Case of the Missing Les-Paulverizer. Probably got it at a yard sale.
11:25 am – Actually, there’s a definite Les Paul–Mary Ford interplay with Cohen’s ringing guitar sound and Nedelle‘s vocals.
12:14 pm – This is as much future music as experimentalists like Animal Collective or TVOTR or big groups like Sufjan’s or Arcade Fire.
2:37 pm – How Cryptacize manages to sound huge with only a power trio remains a mystery to me.
3:16 pm – Tail & Mane might be a perfect song. Sing-along-able, fun, catchy, unexpected. I really can’t get enough of this song.
3:48 pm – Gotta Get Into That Feeling should be played during the “thinking of you” montage in the live-action Legend of Zelda film.
4:41 pm – Considering how sparsely used it is here, the bass makes a pretty serious impact on this treble-heavy record.
These can all be accessed by looking at the #mythomania hashtag.
[Here‘s a link to a Les Paul/Mary Ford song, so you can get some of what I meant. I’ve used this song on a mixtape before, so if it seems familiar, that’s why.]
