"Curse Of The Contemporary has a noticeable country twang to it, a simpler, more familiar style and structure almost make it seem unusual amongst the more complex and fascinating ideas to be found. What keeps the song interesting is that they’ve even managed to subvert the expected in very unexpected ways. So what starts as one thing never remains that way. What you’re left with is 16 Horsepower meets Joni Mitchell with wonky 80’s Vangelis style production sheen."

CURSE OF THE CONTEMPORARY

LUMP - (Laura Marling and Mark Lindsay)

If you should be bored in California
I'm sure I'm not the first to warn ya
Don't read in too much to all the signs and turns
Keep your wits about you with your mind freedom

If you should be bored in California
I'm sure I'm not the last to warn ya
The natives scaled the mountains for the promise of the sea
But deem the land unworthy of this evidently

We salute the sun because
When the day is done
We can't believe what we've become
Something else to prey upon

And evidently
It is just another vanity
Another something to believe
The curse of the contemporary

We salute the sun because
When the day is done
We can't believe what we've become
Something else to prey upon

And evidently
It is just another vanity
Another something to believe
The curse of the contemporary
