Man, that video. I’m not sure the odd effect is because that song is amazing or Angel Olsen is amazingly beautiful. The truth is I liked better “Windows” than any of the videos on the list this week, and the five videos are pretty good.
My total favorite of the week, and even maybe the year: Iceage’s “Against the Moon”.
I upvoted your comment just because “Hey Ya” is truly the song of the 00s.
Everytime Stereogum invites us to listen Taylor Swift’s music:
Oh, of course, that’s the reason…
And, yeah, those are tears of happiness.
So Stereogum decided this is not the Album of the Week….
“There are two songs in particular that deserve a mention, but were too divisive to make the list: Taylor Swift’s “Welcome To New York” and Ariel Pink’s”Black Ballerina.””
I feel so sad that “Welcome To New York” is a divisive song, because it definitely sucks, and there should not be another opinion. Oh, the horror, the nowadays pop,…..
Really? No “Mr. Noah”? And something is better than “Motion Sickness” this week?
Maybe I’m waiting too long to listen RTJ2.
Totallly agree with the two top songs: if it weren’t for that overwhelming Sleater Kinney “comeback or whatever” song, this week would be for “Mr. Noah”.
Maybe it just matches with the horrible sound.
