darwin deez are a a special breed of musicians first discovered in new york city and they are currently the talk of the town. they call what they do 'happy music for sad people'. it's brittle, plaintive, warm and breezy indie-pop recorded probably on some beaten up old dictaphone. it has the shambolic nature of pavement mixed with the playful julian casablancas-style monotone style vocal. it's lugubrious, lo-fi and low-rent, but it feels kind of literate, too - the first line of the cure-ish 'bad day' goes, "i hope that the last page of your 800-page novel is missing" while on 'dna' deez announces that he is down to his "last six or seven chromosomes". if dinosaur jr were a brainy indie-disco troupe fronted by a permanently befuddled j mascis with a frizzy perm influenced by devo and the dazz band, they'd sound like darwin deez. on lucky numbers.
