final fantasy - "i'm afraid of japan" (from the he poos clouds lp, released tomorrow, available for pre-order here.)

let me type that once more : he poos clouds. what the fuck, owen?

right, so no japanophobia or no fear of david sylvian, for that matter. "i'm afraid of japan" is like an overture i'd hear at the film forum before a scandinavian art film. it only fucks up that arthouse vibe when it reaches resolution, b/c, you know; it's a welcome sort of fuck up, too, b/c scandinavian art films don't always make the best pop songs. oh, but rejoice, ye avant-garde, for it ends w/ a drone that would make scott walker '69 happy--or even gladder to be unhappy.
