By Your Side by CocoRosie

My mom's always telling me that the music I listen to is too weird. I fervently resist her claims, but on this song, she might be right. It uses bird chirping prominently, so there's that. And that picture above, is the first result when you google image search "CocoRosie." So I'm not embellishing when I say they're pretty weird. But really, this song is all about getting past the weirdness, and focusing on the slow, hazy beat and thin voice crooning above the simple instrumentation. It's fantastic. Herbal stimulation recommended. Listen after the break.
Sounds like: Joanna Newsom
