Gayngs vs. Romy & Michelle

In Bon Iver, Soundtrack on January 25, 2012 at 3:36 pm


Gayngs – Cry – This project isn’t new, but I’m finally listening to Jagjaguwar uber-band Gayngs.  Members of Bon Iver, Megafaun, The Rosebuds, and Solid Gold combine with rappers, songstresses, and a jazz sax player to create a 69bpm experiment in sound and collaboration.  The record, as you’d imagine, is pretty schitzo, but the successful moments are pretty special.  At the moment, I’m substituting this song for “Time After Time” at the end of Romy & Michele [watch it, muted, as you listen to this song].  It’s a beautiful, lurching slow dance. Time dragged to nearly to a halt. The camera spins, panning slowly across a sea of friends, then starts to ascend. As the screen fades to black I wonder to myself if everything in the world is suddenly right, or gone woefully wrong? [from Relayed|buy]
