Song of the Day - June 14, 2005


It is hard to describe the music of Lungs of a Giant. There music is definitely eclectic;at times it reminds me of something I might here in a David Lynch movie. David Lynch take note! There is a forlorn, melancholy feel to their songs. The track "Charon, Take Me Away" is one of my favorites. It starts out with the guitarist running his pick up and down the strings of his guitar, creating an eerie scratchy sound. There is the almost carnival like keyboards repeating a simple riff over and over, and of course the sad vocals. Yes, I know it sounds strange, but when you put it all together it works very well.

Weird, but in a good way.

Yes, I have to agree with you. There are times when I just crave something different.

Thanks! (I'm the keyboardist of LOAG) We've got a new album out called Headfirst Handshakes. You can buy it at iTunes and at cdbaby.com.
