Guster – Diane

I like a good dynamic build, and this tune illustrates that idea nicely.

You can hear each tiny element appear one by one, bringing us finally to the addition of the alternate vocal line in the ending chorus, which really drives a fairly simple song into new territory. It’s another good example of creating complexity out of simplicity, as discussed here before. There are good and bad ways to do that, and I’d place this well into the former category.
