Song of the Day 7/28/08: Lesser Gonzalez Alvarez - Mostly A Friend
"Mostly a Friend" is loose and wild - the intro rattles in twangy bursts, like Lesser Gonzalez Alvarez is trying to untie a loose knot made out of frayed guitar strings. Throw in maracas, woodblocks and light handclaps, and you've got a full and chirping background for Gonzalez's whimsical lyricism. "My foe's mostly a friend" - the whole track sounds like it hails from a world markedly better than our own, and the vibrant arrangement gives the impression that we're welcome to join him on the other side. Don't worry, the grass will stay greener once we get there.
