Miniature Tigers: "The Wolf"

Afraid of your classes? Tired of your job? Midterms about to take a big 'ole bite of your face? Sitting in the library fretting over whether or not it'd be a good idea to OD on caffeine and stay up all night or get some sleep? Kids driving you crazy? Me too. For anybody currently in this predicament, take a listen to Miniature Tigers' clap-accentuated non-stop word-flurry of a song, "The Wolf." Press repeat. Drink another cup of tea. Check your RSS reader. Check your e-mail. Check Go to the vending machine outside of the library's 24-hour study room. Write a sentence of your paper that's due tomorrow morning. Repeat until finished. Or until you wake up late for class. RUN! In all seriousness, though, this is a really good pop song I've been meaning to post for awhile, and it's almost as good as caffeine. Bonus: Shouldn't make you jitter.

This song about unrequited love comes from Charlie Brand's (AKA Miniature Tigers) Octopus EP, released earlier this year. Crazy how he makes "I'm on your trail / I can smell your blood" sound so happy. This would have been perfect for my "Creepy Date Songs" mix I posted earlier this summer. Charming, no?
