This may be one of the strangest tapes I've posted this year. And I say that, not to deter a listen of course, but to celebrate the odd and beautiful strangeness that makes Binary Execute Now, from Lawrence Welks & Our Bear To Cross such a powerfully emotional tape. Fractured, loungy, heartbreaking pop, produced in a broken, overdriven fashion that seems to deteriorate the further you proceed. Vocals, keys, horns, all delivered with such overwhelming conviction I can't help but fall in love with them, despite their bordering on parody. Sounds like The Darkness jamming with Prince during the outtakes for Darling Nikki.
