Earlier, a tipster let us know that an unreleased song by Relaxed Muscle–the electro-spook side project undertaken by Jarvis Cocker and Jason Buckle in the earlier part of this decade–had, under the innocuous title “left over relaxed m…..,” surfaced on Buckle’s MySpace page. The tipster asked us if the song may fall under the “forgotten classic” category; while we need a few more comparative listens to the rest of A Heavy Night With Relaxed Muscle to properly judge, we really like its spooky backing vocals and the breakdown where Jarvis commands someone to “pull your pants up and settle down.” We’re pretty into the other songs Buckle has on display, too, although we have one question: Is that Scott Walker getting the taffy-pull vocal treatment on “Give Inn”?
