Woo woo woo woo
Dating Cops - The Intelligence
Lars Finberg is seized with an anxious, itchy aggrievement that knows no precise object, a vague and omnivorous can't get no satisfaction. So his voice careens around the room like a squash ball, hard and unpredictable. Going out, going out with, going out with you, he stammers over the dirty chug of guitars and drums, scrambling for the most withering insult in his arsenal. Going out with you is like going out with a cop, almost comes as a lame surrender, though it's still plenty hostile. You can see the girl sitting across from him respond with an I'm outta here roll of the eyes, a cool sip of beer, a gesture for the bill. Some guys sitting at the table behind them laugh and make police signal sounds--woo woo woo woo woo woo. That's when Lars realizes his mistake. He turns the line on himself: No, going out with me, ME, is like going out with a cop! But she's already gone.
The Intelligence's new album, Deuteronomy (Amazon, eMusic) is pretty great.
