New Earlimart: “Answers and Questions”

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.

  1. hey bra~

    note the new west coast dialect in my written speech. I think it is safe to remove me from the milk carton now. as I stared into the white light I saw south of mainstream and had to turn back. it was not my time!

    that said I have posted my obit for mallie and her wonderful ear.

    have you heard the horse feathers album yet. (insert knee jerk reaction here) its brilliant.

  2. I just went to the Rhythm Room website to try to buy tickets for the Jose Gonzalez show and apparently its been cancelled! Any idea why?? I was really looking forward to that 🙁

  3. By the way… if you get those Jeremy Enigk tracks from the United States of Leland, could you post “Set It On Fire”? I have the others, but have been unsuccessful in tracking that one down. Thanks in advance!
