“Ungirthed” — The Coolest
Purity Ring is a side project from Corin Roddick, member of the fantastic electro-spazz dance group Gobble Gobble. Their first official track “Ungirthed” infuses the most enjoyable aspects of Gobble Gobble into a swelling ocean of fractured pop vocals and rumbling melodic bass lines.
The highlight of “Ungirthed” comes from the nearly indecipherable vocalist Megan James. Her effervescent voice offers a cryptic description of an unforgiving world crumbling around her; however, when that single crystalline pop chorus blooms around the 1:14 mark, the perseverance of the human spirit triumphs — rising above all of life’s hardships.
My only complaint is that “Ungirthed” is far too short… I guess that’s why we always have the repeat button.
Now we’re cooking! We are headed in to the final stretch of my favorite songs from 2010. Numbers 40 through 21 have so much great stuff it’s hard to contain it all in a single post! Stay tuned… the final 20 will be posted very soon!
