The world is drowning in its own water


Cymbals Eat Guitars - Child Bride

Cymbals Eat Guitars' album LOSE is a rich document of suburban Midatlantic existence. The kind of thing that's a web of place names and local local local descriptions. So, you know, unbeatable if you're from the place that's under discussion, and probably only mildly interesting if you're not. But these songs are so good. Jackson, Warning, Child Bride, Laramie, 2 Hip Soul, all classics. That's more than half the album--and the other songs are just as strong, but they don't stick with me as closely as those five. In Child Bride, D'Agostino sings "Skeletor/of the liquor store," about a character's mother, and good lord isn't that at once such a ridiculously sweet rhyme and shattering lyric.
