Packed Like Frozen Food and Battery Hens
Dark Meat - Freedom Ritual (mp3): If this intro is a trick to get me to listen to a free form jam-rock song, it actually kind of works. The style hints at Radiohead's "Life In A Glass House" as its lazy vocal crescendos into passionate big band chaos. But substitute Thom with an even higher falsetto and then a strong Southern accent, the subtle dynamics with brash transitions ripped out of notebooks, the intriguingly balanced jazz with saxophones that are much too curious. Ok, so it's not a great comparison... but I'm grasping at reasons why I find this song "neat" instead of awful.
