Song of the Day 6/9/08: The Poison Arrows - Casual Wave

 

"Casual Wave" is a pure and wicked rumbler. A drillbit guitar line drives a hole through a wide mesh of drums, resulting in a churning buzz that carries through most of the song, without much variation but hypnotic in its insistence. Near the end it exhausts itself, spiraling off into a tailspin of violins and soft keys. I don't know enough about The Poison Arrows, but this seems as good a place as any to get acquainted. Casual Wave EP is out August 19th.
