DOWNLOAD: Appomattox, "Sparx" (mp3)
One thing we at the Phoenix had sworn never to talk about but have since come to terms with is that we keep this little framed picture of Appomattox under the nightstand. Each night, right before bed, we take it out, gaze at it by moonlight, and release long, girlish sighs. So dreamy. Oh why did you have to move to New York, Appomattox? We’ve had no one to give us regular doses of rapturous, methamphetamined Blonde Redhead–esque post-punk. We’ve been eating a lot and not going out much. Then, just when we assumed you had forgotten all about us, we get a copy your new A O (Triple Down Records) in the mail. Now we feel that our feelings for you have been super-validated, and we wouldn’t mind talking about maybe working toward something more serious with you. Just think about it. The rest of you, butt out and check out “Sparx” — it, like the rest of A O, is kind of ruthlessly awesome.
