"Omaha" by Tapes N' Tapes

The lyrics are from the Pavement school of abstraction ("Each howl, I get bigger/ I can't stay, I can for the night"), and lead singer Josh Grier has the same desert dry voice as David Byrne. But this is an indie rock band that knows how to create little mood fantasias, and Omaha has all the spooky, hypnotic charm of a night in a cornfield.
