Careful - It's Funny

Almost a year on from its original release date, Careful's 'It's Funny' still carries the same spine-tingling effect it did on initial listen. Upon the urgent and distorted bass, rattling acoustic guitar and wandering organ sit craftily autotuned vocals. Yet here the oft-criticised vocal effect is used passionately, grabbing the essence of Xiu Xiu's Jamie Stewart and emphasising Eric Lindley's cries of "I fake kissing you... I think hardly of when your father died." Written, 'It's Funny's ingredients are inapposite - yet, in product they produce a touching, frail and frighteningly beautiful piece of music.
