Geek Sounds on Thursday #1: "Four-Color Love Story"
I know this is probably really old news to some of you -- especially if you habitually refer to Warren Ellis for music recommendations -- but I whole-heartedly urge you to download the song "Four-Color Love Story" by The Metasciences. Trust me. You'll realize why, after you've heard the lyrics, but the title alone should give you an indication ;)
Basically, it's a loving acoustic celebration of the dewy-eyed romance, associated with Silver Age superheroics. Think of it as an 'Ultimate' or 'All Star' version of Simon and Garfunkel, if you please. Folk rock with a thoroughly post-post-modern sense of earnest juvenalia; it's light-hearted and playful, self-aware but never too arch or ironic.
