Song of the Day 1/26/09: Osborne - In Gear

 

Osborne's "In Gear" feels like it may have been birthed from a self-imposed restriction: can I write a song in which the main elements never change? "In Gear" toys with rigid over-and-overism; you can call it "repetition" as long as you promise to wick away any stigma. The gruff guitar is the centerpiece - a single chord, severed from its strum and tail end, grunts through the bulk of the track, with chipper hi-hats and plucked bass notes rolling in to keep the thing afloat. "In Gear" is, indeed, an intricate mechanism, a bicycle rolling downhill, relying on the sum of its many parts to keep it into motion. Oh yeah, and the bicycle is funky and psychedelically colored. Almost forgot that part of the metaphor.
