Dosh

Um, Circles and Squares
The Lost Take
a note about this track

"Um, Circles and Squares", is one of the album's brightest moments. Andrew Bird's doleful violin is the invocation, but Dosh doubles it on itself, subsuming it with a high-attack Rhodes sequence. Bird's strings peek through only to be swatted with cymbals and snares, a frown flipped, then forgotten.
