You would be right to expect something a little more than “out there” from Philadelphia’s Annie Sachs, what with a name like Tickley Feather and all. She conjures up strange pop song-spells in step with her Paw Tracks cohorts, Black Dice and Animal Collective. Her upcoming album, Hors D’Ouevres, will be out next Tuesday, October 20th. Listen to “Don’t Call, Marylin”, a lo-fi pastiche of nursery rhyme rhythm, strung out keyboards, and watery-alien vocals, and check out her tour dates while you’re at it.

Classify this mashup of Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the U.S.A.” and Biggie’s “Party and Bullshit” by Hathbanger under “guilty pleasure”. Somehow Biggie’s verses make singing along to Miley’s chorus okay.
