Tune of the Week: Bilderbuch’s “OM”

We’re not sure if the lyrics for Bilderbuch‘s new single “OM” should be interpreted as Tijuana and New Mexico or as Tijuana is a city in New Mexico. If it’s the latter, this Austrian foursome need a geography lesson. But with a track that imagines what it would sound like if Falco fronted a modern day hipster pop band and a video that isn’t afraid of taking some risks or being too artsy, you have to give Bilderbuch credit where credit is due. After a series of great singles (previous tune of the week “Maschin,” “Plansch,” “Spliff”), they’ve got us hooked and now all inquiring minds wonder just what their upcoming full-length album (set for February release) will sound like. What a great way to close out the year.
