Skeletons, “Walmart and the Ghost of Jimmy Damour”

Always low prices, sometimes dead trampled employees, too.

A sinister carnival tune cinched through a Black Dice meat grinder blooms into a vintage R. Stevie Moore pop delicacy, this new Skeletons (Skeleton$) track reminds you that shopping kills, or, that the ghost of Jimmy Damour, the Walmart worker who got trampled last year during the early Black Friday onslaught is “haunting every last store.”

The band takes on the national day of consumer over consumption pretty earnestly (“And when the girl behind the counter smiles / you can still believe her / because even if her words are scripted, / she could still be real,” and, “The most normal and the most humble… become so ugly in the face of such savings”). It's the lead-off track of their upcoming full length, People, out in spring 2011 on Shinkoyo, on an as-yet undecided date that'll hopefully be safe and approved for a little record shopping.
