Javelin "Off My Mind"

Taken from Javelin's second full-length, No Más, "Off My Mind" contains some of the sonic elements one would expect from the tropicalia-loving Brooklyn cousins, as well as some surprises. While bells, a nicely synthesized West Indian rhythm, and squeaky keys make their presence known, the multi-tracked vocal harmonies are more reminiscent of something from the Avalanches, or even Stereopathic Soul Manure. In other words, "Off My Mind" is a little bit more twee than one would expect, but is still a lovely slice of sentimental heat, perfect for warm, rainy days.
