PRETTY GIRLS MAKE GRAVES
Don't look now, but we're rapidly approaching the mid-point of 2006. This realization has depressed me a bit, as I remain disappointed by so many of the '06 album releases thus far. I mean, lordy, how's a boy to put together his beloved year-end Top 10 list? (Oh hell, let's face it... when the time comes, it won't be a problem.)
Despite not being much of a fan of their previous work, I decided to check out Pretty Girls Make Graves' '06 effort, Elan Vital. Let's just say: I remain not much of a fan of their work.
Even so, I did find myself drawn - moth-to-flame - to a couple of the songs, though the first of them is more of a sound/moodscape. Kind of irresistible and haunting, though - what with that piano-and-bassline thing going on. Give in to the off-kilter groove...
