"20th century girl"

Just finished everything on my "to do by midnight Sunday" list...and it's only noon on Tuesday! Woohoo!1

I got a Pizzicato Five album. (About time, right?) The Fifth Release from Matador. It's a happy, slightly frantic sound collage. The singer has a classy, restrained voice, which makes it all the more thrilling when she lets loose with some vibrato here or a little squeal there. (I don't understand any of the lyrics, except for little snippets of English here and there.) I guess that some people dismiss this band as too weird, but what struck me as I was listening to it was how much it reminded me of Todd Rundgren's Something/Anything? Of course, that album is also too weird for some, but it's got the same electronica-jazz-cheese-pop collage sensibility, and both albums share an utter lack of inhibition. I love it. I'm soaking it up.

  1. If this reads like "Yay, I'm five days ahead of schedule!", let me assure you that that isn't the case. It's "Yay, I'm only two days behind!"
