It's somehow a combination of articulate rap/hip-hop, slacker chick indie rock, nouveau folk and ice cream truck music...somehow. There is a sort of disarmingly innocent nursery rhyme this-is-it quality conjoined with an all-too-knowing and insightful world weariness here.
And there are interesting instrumental touches that set this apart too.
It's something about frustration and courage in the face of a self-alienation, sandwiches, candy, hitting rock bottom and yet realizing it's becoming a common thing, that it's what needs to be gone through. And it's all that in a real-poetical way, with blunt sophistication. Hey. And it's about prevailing because that's what you must do. So it's not just a generation thing either.
I found I could get with this, though it's not my usual thing. I'm not sure I'd want to hear it another 1,000 times, but it's about right now. Right now.
