Nothing Lives Long, He Sang, Only the Earth and the Mountains
The Brave Captain is straight outta The Boo Radleys, and if you know the music, you know what I mean. Beatelesque movements like some lysergic Sgt. Pepper play over the Britpop vocals and Flaming Lips drum kicks. I think I'm happy, but sometimes drugs are music... or, I mean, music is a drug, and these tunes get me spinning in some other reality. The moodier mellow moments kind of make me think of Eric Satie, if Satie was a member of the Elephant Six collective. Beautiful moods and melodies and Martin is singing better than ever.
