Song of the Day 8/4/08: Restiform Bodies - Bobby Trendy Addendum

 

You could call "Bobby Trendy Addendum" 75% hip hop and 25% slick, nasty electro, and I'd give you a free pass for coming up with a quick-and-dirty song pitch. But I'd hate to leave it at such a stunted summation - truth is, Restiform Bodies deserve another couple hundred percentage points to encapsulate all the crazy shit that's going on here. It flips between slivers of sarcasm, pathos and keen insight, spinning like a roulette wheel, sometimes so fast that you can't tell the blacks and reds apart: "Give us just enough language to become instantly famous / and a pony every birthday, regardless of our behavior." Toss in disorienting elevator bings, woodblocks, near-chiptone glitches and two different decomposing bridges into and out of the chorus - you come out with a track that's as intricate as it is catchy.
