Love the guitar work, reminds me of early PJ Harvey.

Is it wishful thinking to hope it's actually Ringo playing?

Probably better than all new tracks on Sunny at the very least.
As good as Sora ga... at the very most.

As good as most of the stuff on SUNNY =p

Sonically quite congruent with the sound on tracks like Shizukanaru gyakushu, but prettier melody.

EDIT: Figured out what I love so much about it - it sounds like an Elephant Kashimashi track. <3

In an interview I remember Shiina saying one of her favorite albums at the time was the newest Elephant Kashimashi album, so that got me to check them out. Not a bad band at all.

^they are srsly The Shit. she actually did a cover of one of their most famous songs (kanashimi no hate) with hirai ken. sadly I've not been able to find that performance anywhere since.

I suggest boycotting this single, so that sales drop and then Ringo might get the message the cover needs to be more thoughtful!

The songs will be repackaged into her next album and next b-side collection anyway, so whoever buys it is either a completist or a complete sucker.

This song would be 20% better if she didn't gasp after every line.

A 90s sounding song wouldn't be the same without the 90s edge in the vocals :-p

WTF any of this has to do with the Coltrane reference is anyone's guess. Maybe she was just trying to appeal to the hipster crowd. Or the bside is jazzy/features SAPS.
