Song of the Day 8/20/08: Larytta - Ya-Ya-Ya

 

You remember Four Tet's "She Moves She," about halfway through, how a distorted synthesizer jackknifes through a tinkling, watery bell and string section? It was so sudden that I thought another song had kicked up in the background on my computer the first time I heard it. "Ya-Ya-Ya" by Larytta gives that same distinct impression. It isn't so much about interplay or some sort of magical coalescence of elements here, as it is two separate entities - the vocals and the instrumentation - circling each other like predators from a careful distance, nurturing an uneasy truce. Strong, layered (and keenly manipulated) acapellas fend off synthetic toms until the two sides hit a sort of strained, tense balance in the middle. Expect a lot of sharp turns over the course of these five minutes.
