"Fun and Interesting" is the sound of the search for a heart of gold in the form of a corporate motivational song. A husky singer documents the surreal quest for love of a certain "detective" over a lush string arrangement. A choir of clones demands to be cloned, belting out "My generation needs another me". It's blistering, instantly catchy pop music and very unlike anything else. It's also completely sick. In all the best ways.
The B-side, "Brace Brace", groves with Shakespeare and features a lot of guitar soloing compressed into a few seconds. A slightly more down-beat, absurdist funk epic, this is the perfect counterpart to "Fun and Interesting", resulting in what is surely one of the most idiosyncratic, memorable and, yes, both fun and interesting pop singles of 2008."
