This should be all over the Web in a matter of minutes. Typically, I try to avoid the herd mentality on mass e-mails disguised as personal letters (“Hey … you! I have a song for … you!” Recently, I’ve gotten e-mails addressed to someone named Michael; it’s that extra, personal touch that really counts.). In this case, I like Earlimart, so just call me a lemming.
Pitchfork reviewed this track, the A-side of a 7″ for Suicide Squeeze (order it here). Answers and Questions follows the dreamy pop the band put forth on 2004’s Treble and Tremble. It’s a soothing track that builds up until the bottom falls out at about the 3:26 mark with a sudden, startling pause that gives way to the peaceful (or eerie?) sounds of birds chirping.
The song will be included on the group’s forthcoming LP.
