366TAS: 4:54 – The Bad Plus – Feeling Yourself Disintegrate

To me, “Feeling Yourself Disintegrate” is the opposing companion to Weezer’s “The Good Life”, at least when it comes to my personal history. Things fall apart, there’s not much you can do about it but observe. It’s not happy or good, but you can make it dramatic and a little bit epic. That’s exactly what the Bad Plus does in their cover of the Flaming Lips track, particularly with the way the structure of the song itself disintegrates into a great big noisy mess over the last two minutes. Descending into chaos, the song strikes the perfect chord, so to speak, and captures just the right emotional tone. Very well executed, this cover is.
