New: Young & Sick | Magnolia 7″

Y&R ArtworkThe Fader was kind enough today to introduce me to two new songs from Young & Sick, who is appropriately and concisely self-identified as a Music and Art Project.  I’m no art major, but the visual aspect of Young & Sick looks like a natural and complicated extension of Keith Haring.

But I’m not here to make art comparisons.  I’m here to share what I believe may be the best baby-making music you’ve heard in a long, long time.  They’re slow-paced, simple and sweet as honey.  The high-pitched harmonies in Magnolia weave in and out of the lower talking vocal lines, backed by a basic, dancing synth and minimal percussion.

On the b-side, he asks you to meet him in the Willow tree, and I don’t think he intends to do a lot of talking once you get there.  Keep these songs in mind on the 14th next month, right up there with Al Green and Marvin Gaye.
