Social Studies :: "Paint"

Social Studies, a San Francisco outfit, find a roots-y tear in the Beach House dream-pop fabric. Natalia Rogovin sounds both fragile and resolute in the more propulsive moments of "Paint", vaguely provincial, against the backdrop of a meditative keyboard arrangement. Finally spilling over in the song's last minute, a guitar line chases the blinking keys at the top of the room, Rogovin marching away beneath doing a Victoria Legrand impression without a shred of irony or any bad footnotes.
