Why do we like this?

Have you ever listened to a song that made you completely numb? Not in the bad sense, but in more of a frozen consciousness kind of way that is so severe you can't do anything but take a seat and embrace what is presented before you? That's what Telefon Tel Aviv's "The Birds" does to me.

Lavishly melancholic while maintaining the art of balanced progressions, this masterfully crafted song is as intoxicating as the first inhale of the brisk winter air. The crisp echo succession sprinkled on top of swarming soundscapes creates a blinding haze of vaporous electronica that is both curiously romantic and brooding.

Once the first listen lingers in your eardrums, the obsession sinks in. It might make you want to listen again immediately; it might make you want to put on headphones so you can get a more intimate listen. Odds are you will go in for a second helping. So what if you don't know how to react at first? Once the ear frenzy subsides, you are left with a lingering memory of the excellent song you just heard. Whatever your immediate feelings may be, let them loiter throughout your mind -- it might do the body good.
