MUSIC: Song Of The Day (Ghostland Observatory)

Typically, I'm not a huge fan of electro-tinged stuff, but this song does a little something for me. Based out of Austin, Ghostland Observatory play some funky electronica kind of stuff.... more polished than my normal preferences (for example, I think DFA / LCD Soundsystem stuff has some more dirt on it). But this song here has a little Rapture in it, a feel of desperation, a wanting; that's what makes it good.
