10. Human Human – “Forest”

humanhuman1 Top 10 MP3s of the Week (5/24)

Not to be confused with the too-gender-specific Man Man, Montreal’s Human Human produce epic indie rock of the type that has the dizzying energy that can only be generated by a double-mortal entity. “Forest” is the latest example of that loping pulse, opening on an Andrew Bird-esque pastoral, only to dive deeply into the mirror-pool beauty, rich strings and dense electric guitar dreamily rippling from the point of impact. Every line drips with emotional resonance (“My heart beats so fast / I feel yours too”), the song an encapsulated shot of new love. “Forest” is an early taste of Human Human’s debut self-titled EP due May 28th. -Adam Kivel
