#songoftheday = OnDeadWaves: “California” / “Comfortably Numb” (Dusk Versions)

onDeadWaves, the duo comprised of Polly Scattergood and James Chapman, have released Dusk Versions, two trippy tracks that will have you feeling like you’re gazing at the sun as it sets.  First, is “California,” which is performed sans percussion, giving it a somewhat eerie vibe.  You can almost hear ghosts calling from beyond way off in the background.  If that doesn’t trip your trigger, their cover of Pink Floyd’s classic “Comfortably Numb” ought to cast a spell on you, putting you in a hypnotic state that commands you not to move until the song is over.  The only thing wrong with Dusk Versions is that there are only two tracks.  They should re-record their entire album like this.
