Ice Cream Socialists - "Mr. Crazy"

You know that episode of Star Trek where Spock shows up with a goatee and he's evil? I have a feeling that's what happened to Ice Cream Socialists before they recorded "Mr. Crazy." I must say, I'm a fan. These Athens kids are best known for their frenetic pop and twee exercises. This song, however, strays from their hap-hap-happy material even while still incorporating plenty of interesting instrumentation and on-a-dime changes of pace.

You can play this on your porch this Halloween, both demonstrating your good taste and scaring away the sugar-seeking kiddies. That is, unless you're with me at the 40 Watt for Of Montreal.

Nice one. Bodes well for new stuff to see them trying something a bit different.

Actually I think Belles & Missiles is still one of my favourite albums of the year.
