Song of the Day 7/9/08: Head Like A Kite - No Ordinary Caveman
"No Ordinary Caveman" from Head Like a Kite has the body of an odd and introverted man, but with a faint electric glow. Behind the sheet of withdrawn vocals, violin strings warble and snap over a sputtering bassline. It's a pretty tenuous atmosphere, and the only real indication of strength is the authoritative drumline, placed beneath the other instruments like scaffolding. The cold air of detachment reminds me of that peculiar breed of person - the one you realize is complex and compelling, but only once you manage to break them out of their shell.
