“Kiwi Minor” — The Barracudas

The song begins with something close to a keyboard playing “Down by the River” in demo mode accompanied by only occasional acoustic strumming, and it ends in cartoon lasers. In-between, “Kiwi Minor” seems to branch off, exploring several different variations of itself, while mixing drum machines with banjos, creepy whispers with tambourines, and awesomely untrained vocals with what I’m pretty sure is a semi-articulate toad singing backup. That description actually makes it sound pretty awful, but “Kiwi Minor” is definitely worth hearing.
