Day 157: [THEME WEEK] The Dress Looks Nice On You by Sufjan Stevens (+Bad Communication)

18 Nov

Hello hello!

Once again, I present SUFJAN STEVENS THEME WEEEEEEK!

Sufjan.

I was having trouble trying to decide between three different songs today, so I’ve decided to post two that I really love.

The first is “The Dress Looks Nice On You” off of Sufjan’s 4th album Seven Swans, which is gloriously low-key and beautiful. The song shows a strangely more risque side of the singer, who in one part of the song ¬†says “I can see you better naked, too”… I’m not too sure why he decided to take this turn, considering how this CD plays off of many Bible-themes, but I don’t question it.

The lyrics are soft and the melody is playfully melancholy (especially the banjo part, which is my personal favorite).

I really can’t describe it… it’s strangely appealing.

 

Also, as a bonus, I wanted to throw on another song off of his newest CD Age of Adz… the song is “Bad Communication”, and it is very powerful. You can feel the emotion in his voice, and it makes for a strange listening experience. I love this song and it’s morose sound!

Day 84: Wraith Pinned To The Mist And Other Games by Of Montreal

12 Aug

Hello there! If this is your first time on the site, be sure to check out the about page at the top for more info on my project! Also, sign the guestbook (also located in the top)!

Once again continuing Paste Mag video week, I bring you “Wraith Pinned To The Mist And Other Games” by Of Montreal

NOT hailing from Montreal, Of Montreal is probably the craziest band you’ll hear. While they are considered indie-rock, their music is a combination of experimental techno/glam rock/power pop/ and indie cuteness. And weirdly enough, that’s exactly what the band looks like: a mish-mash of crazy awesomeness (I’ve heard stories of them playing shows naked before. INTENSE). The coolest part of this band is that you can tell when the band is playing because of their unique sound.

This song with the long title is also known by many as the “outback” song (mainly because it’s words were changed for commercials to the Outback). However, the original song is much sweeter and kid-like (even though the video features many scenes of death!) It’s adorkable, and it makes me smile.

So enjoy “Wraith Pinned To The Mist And Other Games” by Of Montreal!

I want to party with those animals!!
