'The Scientific Findings of Dr. Rousseau,' Savoir Adore
From 2007's 'The Scientific Findings of Dr. Rousseau'
Sometimes life gets a little too busy to just appreciate new music. But one night, I stumbled into a bar on NYC's Lower East Side and instantly became entranced by the five-pience on stage. The band lured me in with their animated story of a recording session somewhere upstate New York, which was initially just a fun outing with two friends. But from that trip spawned a concept album which eventually turned into a live performing group called Savoir Adore.
As told by their anecdote, 'The Scientific Findings of Dr. Rousseau' was recorded in a homemade studio -- which meant nothing short of slamming doors, hitting their studio equipment and metal chairs to create sounds. The opening sequence, repetitive in nature, enticed me to keep listening. When the vocal line finally arrived, I was thrown in to a whirl -- hearing lyrics describe a man waking from his sleep to discover the secret of immortality. And almost abruptly, they scream "life after death, death after life." I became so connected to the 'scientific findings' that I, too, wanted to know the secret.
Plus, I have a hard time staying away from a song whose creators describe themselves as two singers "backed by a trained chorus of several small birds and band of guinea pigs on wheels."
