standing nudes

new york quartet Standing Nudes have posted to their website all eight and a half minutes of “Honeybee,” the grand finale of their debut full-length Ghost Story because it’s “too long for myspace.”

the song starts off in Sonic Youth mode, with some Life Without Buildings style lyrical repetition from singer Molly Shea, before gradually sliding off into swirly trippy swelly druggy sludgy mode. then it collects itself and shifts into a tight yet mellowed-out groove that recalls one of my favorite songs ever, David Crosby’s “Cowboy Movie.”

then the song opens up again for some guitar calisthenics courtesy of jason maartens klauber and the chaotic drum thuggery of will stone (both dudes are also in stylofone).

then the song gets tight and vibey again.

then the song ends.

anyway, it’s big and it’s sorta mind-expanding and i rather like it.

STREAM: STANDING NUDES “HONEYBEE” and watch the pastel pixels trip the light fantastic HERE.
