The Proper Ornaments - You Still

"You Still" is a miniature, but that doesn't mean it's not sharply detailed. You can derive a lot of pleasure from this song, but the difference between this and one double its length is that you only get that swell of emotion once, instead of three or four times. You have to come back to it again and again. There is something from the Kinks in here, maybe some Tigermilk-era Belle & Sebastian (the guitars, I think), and Spoon--the last because of the song structure, and that ending. Going out on a little riff like that reminds me of Series of Sneaks. This is a great short song. Put it in your pocket.
