Fun with Forkcast, Round 17

Pitchfork: ForkcastWe’ve been spending a lot of time listening to 40-year-old music lately, but that doesn’t mean we’re not paying attention to new stuff.

Radiohead: “These Are My Twisted Words”

Circulatory System: “Round Again”

Califone: “Funeral Singers”

Circulatory System – Overjoyed

MP3: Circulatory System – “Overjoyed” from Signal Morning, due September 8 on Cloud Recordings.

There’s so much going on in this song that it can be initially overwhelming. On first listen you might think it sounds like when you’ve accidentally opened up two YouTube pages at the same time. After your second or third spin, though, the magic and the melody come shining through. Sure, “Overjoyed” sounds like it’s been futzed with for seven years—it has been. It takes a lot of skill to arrange this much clutter so artfully.

Signal Morning features all the members of the Olivia Tremor Control, as well as Jeff Mangum and Julian Koster of Neutral Milk Hotel. Vinyl will ship in October, and there’s a “deluxe” LP edition (limited to 300 copies in handmade jackets designed by W. Cullen Hart) that includes a bonus LP containing demos and alternate versions.

Circulatory System: iTunes, Amazon, Insound, wiki.
