Casiotone for the painfully alone

All the songs on the Vs Children album are wee stories like the ones you’d get in modern American indie films, full of unhappy beautiful young people being sad and finding life tough and stuff. In Wyoming or wherever. Kansas in this case I believe.

Often children or pregnancy is involved, like on this song there’s a line ‘the less you feel like a child the more you’ll want a child’. Not sure I agree, I just think it’s a great line.


It’s so sad

this tune was on some ‘music off films’ compilation.

I’ve never seen the film in question and don’t speak Sydow so I’ve got no what’s happening here. Judging by the music the audience should by this point be weeping gently to themselves, pretending they’re interested in the credits so no one can see the tears streaming down their faces as they leave the cinema.

Corn sister

Carloyn Mark, Destination you. Minimalist plinky-plonkiness with a distorted vocal that’s not really like any of her other stuff.
