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.
