The Elliott Kozel of She Is So Beautiful/She Is So Blonde, is a light psychedelic smear of wan harmonica, quavering guitar, brushed cymbals, whooshing sound effects that suggest a rolling thunder storm and, most important, Kozel's narcotized, half whispered vocals.
In some ways, the tune recalls Calexico and even Madison expat Carl Johns. But Kozel's definitely exploring personal musical mysteries, too. In fact, like a lot of the album, "On the Bus" is so hermetic it's meant to convey much more than the absurd lightness of being.
An MP3 of the track are available in the related downloads at right. More music by Kozel on She Is So Beautiful/She Is So Blonde can be found on its MySpace page.
