Wise Blood – Alarm
While I can’t say I am a fan of Wise Blood or arson, I can say I am seriously addicted to this song. I found Alarm while scanning the blogosphere trying to fill out a playlist for the week and was immediately captivated by the song’s dragging beat. The more I listened, the more I was pulled into every twist and turn created by Chris Laufman’s (a.k.a. Wise Blood) incredible layering – which includes everything from alarm-like horn samples to a graceful piano. Ultimately, it all amounts to a well crafted, albeit twisted, pop song. I don’t know what to expect from Wise Blood’s full-length debut, id, due out June 25th; but what I do know is I cannot stop hitting repeat on this song.
