Cryptacize – Tail & Mane
OK so this was a track I was hammering a few months back and the video somehow slipped past without me noticing. Poor form.
Cryptacize are a bit of an oddball bunch, featuring a guy from Deerhoof and the rather fetching vocal chords of Nedelle Torrisi. The video kind of points at where things are going – so lo-fi it hurts and featuring KITTENS. Yes, that’s right – lo-fi kittens. Yay, etc.
Anyhow, this is a pretty damned pretty little thing, with twinkling diamond guitars and icicle fragile vocals giving way to an understated beauty of a chorus. Recommended.
