Overview

10 Million Hours in a Mile

The entirety of 10 Million Hours a Mile is disturbing, with no letup in its onslaught of faceless children on tricycles, creepy peep-show customers, and unhappy family members who want to kill each other. Filmmaker, playwright, and editor of the zine Snarla, Miranda July sports a blond, frizzed-out Afro and a very dark, ugly view of the world. July can do a wide range of voices and characters, and her monologues are entertaining in a look-at-that-clown-passed-out-in-his-own-vomit sort of way. "How's My Driving?" is an exhilarating 11-minute-long piece that builds to a Twilight Zone-like ending, where Rachel Carns of Kicking Giant and the Need pounds out a frantic drumbeat, while July debates the merits of driving or walking. "While I'm driving I always know that I'm going to die in a car crash and that's so simple. It just makes me feel relaxed, like I can be myself," she says. "Hotel Voulez-Vous," the least creepy track, is about a child trying to prevent his parents from having him by telling them beforehand that it's a bad idea. Miranda July will undoubtedly inspire listeners to hop on the rickety carnival roller coaster that might very well kill them.

Miranda July's style is truly unusual. She takes catchy beats and meshes them to psycholoical puzzles and poetry. A truly unique cd. It grows on you, you catch different things each time you listen... a good investment.
