Cinema red and blue coming soon


"Ballad of a Vision Pure" is the first of three consecutive songs deemed the "ballad of" something (a bus stop, an "all-night worker") but every song could easily be retitled "Ballad of an Unreformed Pop Music Obsessive." Songs about listening to pop songs are not a novel concept; in indie pop in particular, they're a hallowed tradition. But Feck and co. do them so well , with verve and loving attention to details lyrical and musical. These are songs about lonely people yearning to escape into art-- Melanie of "Melanie Down" listens to her radio alone in her room, while the "cinema red and blue" of the title pops up repeatedly as a metaphorical space for losing yourself in an all-encompassing experience. Feck readily acknowledges the dark side to this yearning; in "Ghost Confessions", he sings mournfully about "listening to records that nobody wants/ Dreaming of moments that nobody's had/ Thinking of people that don't exist." Anyone who chuckled at the Swell Maps joke might recoil a bit from the sting.
