Microcastle

Bradford Cox should've called this one Cryptograms; I don't understand what makes it go (neither does he), but going it is. Songs I guess? Songlike blobs anyway, with a voice so passively delivered it needs to dress in drag and pull PR stunts and exploit its jarring body to be noticed in the mix. The codas still don't accumulate much mass, and this will never be Best or New anything. But it is Music; the haze is more Leaves Turn Inside You than Spiritualized. Good.
