Cornelius : Drop

Ahhhhh...

At first, it sounds like Cornelius has dropped his tape recorder into the bath. Japanese pop theoreticians do these kinds of things. But 'Drop' soon evolves into a gurgling delight, as synthesised folk guitars and soothing harmonies drop in and out of this strange, beguiling piece of music.



It's mellow, it's easy, and at the same time, packed with the kind of little sonic experiments that elicit Cornelius frequent comparisons to Brian Wilson. Plus, on remix duties, The Kings Of Convenience have done Cornelius proud, making 'Drop' even prettier by singing about their technical inexperience and the weather in Norse over the top of the track. Ahhhhh.
