Sparrow Orange The Beauty of Strangeness

Judging by the sound of this opiated disc, this Grand Rapids, Michigan, act may be sneaking a few too many Tylenol 3's out of grandpa's arthritis jar. But that's OK, as the disc sounds pretty good, like Mouse On Mars that's been mellowed waaay out and occasionally darkened to Nurse With Wound standards. Tracks like "Pushung 1" and "The Orange Peeler (Peeling Along)" recreate that on-the-cusp-of-sleep feeling, and you won't want to put this on during a long car journey. Then again, you can purchase those handy ephedrine tablets at any truck stop in Michigan. (Noise Factory)
