Song Title: another freaking microcosm
Artist: Baby Mollusk
Album: BABY MOLLUSK
Baby Mollusk is the persona of Brooklyn singer//songwriter Rachel Gordon.
“Another freaking microcosm” is my favorite track from Baby Mollusk’s self-titled demo debut. It is an adorable burst of beautiful, clever, and funny imagery. A majority of my love for this song comes from the lyrics. To put it plainly, my most favorite kind of lyrics are ones with sentences that are fun to say. I feel that Baby Mollusk has truly mastered her word play, and executes it best on this track. Some of the more memorable bits for me are in the first half of the song like, “Your fingernails have dug little comet tails into my back.” I love that.
Another reason that draws me to “another freaking microcosm” is the pacing and atmosphere of it. It has a nice, slow rise-and-fall feeling, with a comfortable sense of spaciousness. When listening to this song I get this childlike feeling of enjoyment, like I’m on a swing set.
