Daily Download: "Kim and Kelly," Ticonderoga

An intriguing violin and accordion arrangement turns this song into something more than the usual mopey indie fare.

The first 45 seconds, acoustic guitar and voice, of Ticonderoga's "Kim and Kelly" are standard-issue mopey indie fare, but then the singer is joined by a wailing, insistently minimalist wall of sawing violins, and things get very interesting -- and quite strange. The tune soon migrates into a slightly less appealing but still intriguing accordion and funk bass arrangement. I'm not sure quite what to make of it, but I'd like to hear more.
