Song of The Day #101

"Virginia Reel Around The Fountain" by The Halo Benders

A latecomer to The Halo Benders, I was kinda shocked at how freaking good they are. Sounding like the cross of Beat Happening and Built To Spill that they are, their music is complex and juvenile at the same time. It's funny, it's weird, and, I gotta say, I prefer them--I think--at least to Built To Spill overall. This song, especially, is a gem. With its sprawling post-rock guitarwork and double vocal performance (sometimes reminiscent in the best way possible of "Lady Godiva's Operation") "Virginia Reel" is really, truly awesome.
