New EeL: “For Common People”

Something tells me the “common people” wouldn’t react well to this. For the rest of us who arrogantly think we’re better than the unwashed masses, though, this might sound pretty nifty! EeL’s latest could easily be filed as “techrock” though it might be better summarized as “head-blitzing tropical noise.” “For Common People” might soften the blow a little bit by being built out of rainbow-bright J-Pop sounds and featuring a little bit of island flavor, but it’s mostly cutesy chaos. The drums just drill ahead, sometimes turning into fast-forwarded breakbeats hinting at a song ready to burst into pieces. Most prominent, though, is the clanging late section which latches onto a jackhammering noise sequence before one more pop go-around. “For Common People” sometimes feels a little too sweet for its own good, but EeL balances the track out by making sure dissonance wins out.
