WU LYF: Go Tell Fire to the Mountain
I knew not what the hell I was getting into when I first heard Go Tell Fire, yet I was instantly hooked once I listened to the album's second track, "Cave Song." It's got elements of post-punk drums and rousing Arcade Fire-esque organs, all tied together by lead singer Ellery Roberts' confounding, unintelligible lyrics. Roberts singing style is as bizarre as it is sudden -- it comes at you with nary a raspy warning, yet you find yourself immensely enjoying it even though you understand about 2 percent of what he's actually saying -- and that's only because he often screams and yelps.
