Song of the Day 5/11/09: Bachelorette - Mindwarp


With "Mindwarp," it's like Bachelorette had this goal to present themselves as Blonde Redhead's more-restrained, cuter younger sibling, but then they got to the studio and decided to play hotswap with all their instrumentation. There are funky guitar wah-wahs, and a barely-audible bass that almost sounds like they spilled water on their Casio, and now it just emits this low hum whenever the circuit wants to. It's all disorienting, but the cadences are enough to keep me skipping blissfully through - multiple times in a row. It'd be tough to make a call on this band before I heard an album, but the dissonance in form and subdued sense of glee is enough to earn this track a healthy look.
