As far as I am concerned, Head Carrier is by the moment the most exciting song from the new batch. I longing to hear the studio version. The live one from Les Vielles Charrues is extremely fine. I love the chords progression and the structure who has this twisted feeling of some songs from Doolittle, like N13 Baby. It's sexy like Velouria and strange like Magdalena.
Just instant/grower classic!

I'd rather compare it with Blown Away (a bit)
Sounds lime the "richest" song so far in terms of creative fluids

I like everything about this song. Hope the sound guy didn't screw up the album version.

Picpic, both you and I know it will sound awful...
Let's accept it and appreciate live recordings

Sorry.

HeadCarrier has a "Bossanova" vibe that I like. BF guitar riff is really cool. Pre-choruses and bridge are neat.

I'm not a fan of Paz vocals on old songs, but I have to admit she sounds good on this one.
