Don't forget the lyric sheet, with the troubador stylings of Y.S. Fing. Taking his cues from Bob Dylan, Jonathan Richman and Todd Snider, among others, Fing demonstrates the deep complexity in seeming simplicity, revealing the inextricable link between joy and sorrow. From songs inspired by the greats Woody Guthrie (Song for Woody) and Robert Johnson (Love in Vain), to songs about the obscure (The Victims of Yalta, Cancun12/21/12), from the furthest reaches of space (Black Hole Blues) to the deepest hollows of the mind (A Real Bad Dream), the band conveys Fing's essential, poetically precise and lyrically delightful, theme of Irony-with-Love - Enjoy!
Wandering in the blue-gray area between pleasure and pain, the Microcosmic Examples share the ambivalent joy of being unable to differentiate between happy and sad.
