The point being that "Fourth of July" itself sounds absolutely nothing like the Velvets: indeed, the serpentine interplay of Dean Wareham's clipped, Morse code-like guitar leads and Naomi Yang's rich, supple bass melody heralds a near-complete break from the fragile dreaminess of previous Galaxie 500 efforts-even Wareham's deadpan vocals and abstractly goofy lyrics seem brand new.
Fourth Of July truly is a single, comprised of just two songs, exactly the way it was presented on the vinyl release. Fourth Of July is a great outing, filled with Dylan-ish wordplay, Beatle references, and a goofy lyrical story delivered with the sly ambition of deadpan seriousness that’s compelling enough to hold your attention from the first word to the last note. But it’s here that Galaxie 500, like their Beatle referenced counterparts, spin the top yet again, and turn back the clocks. It was around this time, during rather bad weather, that I was able to catch Galaxie 500 at Swarthmore College, where a mere handful of devoted fans braved the elements to sit on a cold floor, in dead silence, with our mouths wide open. knowing full well that we were witnessing history in the making.
