Autre Ne Veut – Counting

February 27, 2013

Sounds Similar To: Yeasayer, Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, On An On

Hi there, Whuzzerface here,

I heard this song a few short months ago and could not find a streaming version of it ANYWHERE so I drafted up this in ahead of today, knowing full well that as the hype of this song started to spread, the record label would help a sister out. My faith has been rewarded! (also the sophomore album “Anxiety” was released yesterday)

What artist would call themselves an artist without having a name with meaning so deep, it requires a submersible to plumb the depths and  figure it out? Certainly not Autre Ne Veut though, because it is simply French for “I think of none other”. Now say it with me “Awwww, ‘das sweet!”. And like a good little boy, it’s probably directed to his mother.

This song is epic. It really builds layer upon layer. The beginning is deceptive with the beat and synth whistles. As the verse begins though, we’re greeted with falsetto that had an almost hip hop attitude to it. Come the chorus and all the layers are dropped on the listener in a well-orchestrated cacophony of arpeggios, added voices in octaves, even some saxophone (I’ve said it before and I’ll keep saying it, that instrument is gonna make a huge come back, no thanks to Kenny G).

The album is not an expense, it’s an investment. Look out for your musical future, it needs you. ;-)
