artist: Life Without Buildings
album: Any Other City
Ever listen to a song and have no idea what the fuck the singer is talking about, but you kind of love it for precisely that reason? That’s how I feel about “The Leanover” by the Glasgow band Life Without Buildings. Singer Sue Tompkins talk-sings over surfer/garage band instrumentation with seemingly bottomless charisma. She won me over with her infectious nonsense, and I hope she’ll do the same for you.
Sadly, Life Without Buildings broke up in 2002.
