Song of the Day 4/14/08: JDSY - Smoke and Mirrors
"Smoke and Mirrors" from JDSY sets in like an anxious daydream, spotted with bells and blips that wander around like submarine pings. It's an eerie lull you can't quite shake, though maybe you wouldn't want to if you could. When the drums arrive, they flinch forward in muted, ambiguous bursts - something like Autechre heavy on sleeping pills. At two minutes long, it scares itself away as quickly as it arrives, but the tail end of the daydream lingers with you.
