The Delicious – “Hokusai” (mp3)

The Delicious – “Hokusai” (play)

Holy clever indie rock Batman! This is like XTC on Ecstasy freaking out and sniffing ground up college radio playlists! A simple pop song this is not. But catchy as hell it is, and if you have a high IQ and energy drinks you’ll keep up just fine! The opposite of a no-brainer, “Hokusai” by The Delicious is a fine composition, expertly and joyously delivered by smart people.

The Delicious – “Suspended In Air”

The Delicious – “Suspended In Air” (play)

I love the name of this week’s MP3Jackpot winner: The Delicious. They hail from Bloomington, Indiana, and their song “Suspended In Air” is just  that. It works in a very unusual way, it hangs there and becomes infectious. Check it out.

The Delicious – “Suspended In Air” (play)

Indie intellectu-rock in a waltz time signature from the feverishly smart Bloomington, Indiana rockers, The Delicious. I agree it’s tasty. Delectable even. “I didn’t mean to imply, an endorsement of utter apathy,” sings our hero, as the music sprawls over every college radio-friendly tiddlybit from the last 25 years. It’s so college radio you could make Neutral Milk Hotel and Pavement out of it if you just add water! But let us not ghettoize this fine work as merely derivative, that would be unfair. There’s an original voice in here, perhaps vexing about the midterms he hasn’t studied for to write this song instead. On the ever-lovin’ Joyful Noise Recordings, I give you “Suspended in Air” by The Delicious. A straight A college rock paper.
