Song of the Day 5/17/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Sunday’s song is #437:

The Creatures – Venus Sands

When Siouxsie and Budgie aren’t busy with Siouxsie & the Banshees, they do this frequently scary minimalist project. This is that group’s best song, a ghastly, marimba-driven, atmospheric evocation of death from above that actually succeeds at what Hitchcock was trying to do with The Birds. From the Boomerang cd, 1989; mp3s are everywhere. The link above is the stream at last.fm.
