"...calling them a great alt-pop singles band is a little demeaning". That too. And the tag "alt-pop" is misleading. It should be "alt-rock". Guitar is the primary instrument on their music. Maybe whoever wrote the article don't know what is alternative rock...

If you know something about good electronic music, you should know that Ladytron is one of the best bands in this genre. What better songwriting when they're already masters in songwriting? I will give you just one example: the whole album "Witching Hour". Also "cartoonish icy gothiness"? Give me a break!

I'm glad that CHVRCHES album was selected as Album of the Week. It's interesting that you mentioned Garbage here. However, there is a lot of bullshit about Garbage in this article: 1. "...hit upon a winning formula: Find a charismatic Scottish lady and stay the hell out of her way". Like they went to Scotland and searched until they found Shirley Manson... It was just a happy accident; the story with the Angelfish video on MTV is well known. "Stay the hell out of her way"? Yeah right. The band exists for over 19 years (and counting). Poor guys to stay out of Shirley's way all the time... *sarcasm* 2. " The dudes in the band [...] dressed in all black, maintained neutral facial expressions, and did everything possible to direct all attention toward Shirley Manson". Really? I don't think so. 3. "Lauren Mayberry, Chvrches’ own charismatic Scottish lady, isn’t the force of nature that Manson was". WAS? Garbage reunited last year. I saw them live: they still rock! Manson is still a force of nature. 4. "But Garbage was a cynical project". False! They're a real band. Who still exists after all these years. Who know how to play their instruments. Who are still friends after 19 years. Also about CHVRCHES: "It might not be fair to speculate on the Chvrches dudes’ motives, but let’s just say, for the sake of argument, that they’re looking at Mayberry as a human lottery ticket". Are you a douchebag to make these assumptions?

The song is very fine as it is. The production is great (in fact for the whole album Synthetica).

They forgot "With Every Heartbeat". That song is even better than "Dancing On My Own".

Recently you (Stereogum) made a Progress Report for Garbage. It's a shame that you ignored their forthcoming album "Not Your Kind of People" (out in 14 May) from your list.
