An Album with Mercury "I Saw U" Ads for Lyrics

Posted by Ned Lannamann on Tue, Jan 25, 2011 at 11:43 AM


Musician Jon Timm has just put his new 5-track EP, titled C1 B1, up on his Bandcamp page, and, well, it's pretty nuts. Turns out Timm used "I Saw U" ads from the Mercury for his lyrics. In his words, "It turned out really funny and psychotic."

They're some of the weirdest, most delusional love songs I've ever heard, not to mention that the music is pretty off the wall, too—incorporating dorm-room synths, loverman disco beats, girly falsetto, and monster roars. Listen to the whole thing here.

End Hits: You—waiting for the 4 in a cute cashmere scarf. Us—rolling by in the penitentiary work-program van. Coffee?
