mp3: "Tilt-A-Whirl" - Alyeska

Every summer, the fair would pull into my small town. For one week I could flock to an open field and enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of a summer outdoors. Alyeska captures this feeling on the new single "Tilt-A-Whirl", part of their Crush EP out March 3. Airy and breezy like a late summer evening, Alyeska's Alaska Reid explained to Stereogum that the track is an ode to her owm small county fair. Like the ride this track takes its namesake from, "Tilt-A-Whirl" encourages you to step aboard, swirling and sweeping you into Reid's daydreams and memories, instrumentals and vocals passing by ever so quickly. When it's over you may feel a bit unsteady and a little dazzled, but the draw to ride it again remains.
