New Music: Ariel Pink and Jorge Elbrecht – Hang On to Life
Mexican Summer released a collaborative split 7″ from Ariel Pink and Jorge Elbrecht yesterday, and the first track – “Hang On to Life” – has already taken the title of soft rock hit of the Summer. The immediacy of the opening chords are as disarming as a Quaalude, so with wobbled knees and thousand yard eyes you get lost in the croon, while cursing the opposite sex.
The record’s limited to 2000 copies and will likely go quick, and with a chorus like the below, that’s no surprise.
You screwed the pooch now face it
The truth is in the sky
Intrusions of our youthful delusion rules our life
