I can’t express myself on these guys any better than I did the last time I wrote about them. I’m a huge, huge fan of this band and have been for years. (And by huge fan, I don’t mean I’m fat. I mean they’re great!)
5. Illinois-What The Hell Do I Know? I have often said that Pitchfucked is a site full of overintellectual sissies who refuse to like anything with a beat. Well, I don’t often say that. But I’m saying it now. They gave Illinois a 6.8, which is just absurd. This EP is like the return of Beck, back when he was indie!
Hopefully, after reading what I just wrote, you aren’t asking me what the hell I know. Instead, I hope you’re nodding your head enthusiastically to this great EP.
4. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs-Is Is.
This doesn’t rate higher because all these songs are old. But itâ€™s still great to hear them engineered and mastered. And I picked this picture because never before has she looked more like Howard Stern.
2. New York Fund-Guns. Americana-influenced rock and roll simply doesnâ€™t get much better than this. That these guys lost a record contract is proof positive that the industry has its head up its ass.
1. Atmosphere-Sad Clown Bad Summer. Summer’s over and I can’t stop listening to this.
