Rad Tokyo girl band The Suzan took this song off 808s and Heartbreak straight out of Rhianna’s agonized corset and into something not out of place in a children’s Christmas choral zone. Not just any of those kind of recordings, but the quality ones that make it seem possible that great pop songs are meant to be sung earnestly by a couple dozen of regular and mezzo soprano’s with minimal instrumental and possible matching sweatshirts on. Like the kiddy Radiohead on that one Social Network trailer? Alternately, maybe its a kind of baby-steps psychedelic, krautrock thing. The Suzan’s Bjorn of Peter Bjorn and John produced album Golden Week For the Poco Poco Beat is released by Fool’s Gold October 26th.
