Song of the Day 5/26/09: Nurses - Caterpillar Playground

 

It takes all of about three seconds for Nurses - "Caterpillar Playground" to work its charm - that little bit of carefree whistling is enough to turn a curmudgeony old man into a flower-picking child again. Not that the track rides a flat emotional level - it starts at with the line "Say something wonderful / say something horrible" and continues to chase down the same sort of aesthetic, like a child who doesn't understand complexity but says profound things on accident anyway. This whole track is demure, even bashful, so that everything from vocals to drums to bells and background samples are used sparingly, but to quite an enamoring effect. A comparison to High Places immediately sprung to mind - check this out if you like glee which tries, but (thankfully) fails, to hide its antithesis.

- Phillip Taylor-Parker
