Je Suis Animal: "Painted In My Face"
Je Suis Animal are classy.
Let me just say I have done a terrible job of keeping up with Cloudberry as of late. – Odd, too, because ever since reaching 100 3" CDRs their output has slowed dramatically, you know, to that of a normally functioning record label. Every 7" Roque's released so far has been an absolute cracker and the new(ish) Je Suis Animal single is no exception! I've known about it for a little while now, but it wasn't until this morning that I actually gave it a good listen. I have yet to hear the b-side, as I haven't yet ordered the single (I will be doing so tonight!), but the a-side – which is up for download on the Cloudberry site – is fantastic! So fantastic infact, that I think I actually may be more in love with it than even my favorite of tracks from their LP. The song, "Painted In My Face," reminds me a bit of Stereolab! Just listen those hazy, beautiful vocal harmonies and that charging rhythm section – all it needs is some electric organ buzzing along in the mix and it would be... I don't know, it would be really nice. A few more listens and I could definitely see this being one of my favorite singles of the year! Get this record!
