Tokyo Trawler Recommendation #10 (09/03/10)

Artist: Bright Eyes
Take it Easy (Love Nothing)
Record: Digital Ash in a Digital Urn (2005)

Pass the lighter...

Now, loyal* readers, you've been waiting a fine while, and you are now finally rewarded* with a song about sex! But wait, here, delightfully quirky* production, mixing Super Mario-esque* chimes with electro pitter-patter and something resembling* change jingling* around in an old geezer's* pocket provide the backing for lyrics examining* the emotional dynamics* of a 'loose' sexual relationship.The detailed and eloquent* storytelling travels well along this song's rigid* structure, and whilst the lyrics boast* of feeling 'free, and a little bit empty', it strikes one* that this song is a personal reflection* not on past glories, but on past regrets.

The Tokyo Trawler’s message to the people: I get the feeling many of you could relate to this song...
