“time of dark” is amazing. it was a standout even in the megamix.

on this album, it seems her gift for the calmer, more eerie and ethereal tunes (like “wooly wolly gong” and “little tiger”) has found harmony with her obvious knack for building intensity in layers on layers. there’s depth and atmosphere here.

“wait for a minute” is another great example.

Yeah, not sure why everyone’s so confused about this. The female backing vocals are a noticeable presence in a lot of Pixies music.

Ah! Another “I Live with You.” This. Your list. It’s good, and you should feel good.

Finally, a mention of “I Live with You.” It contains so much of what Grizzly Bear do so well.

How good is “Faraway Lightning”? So good. Strong Finnish is right; the whole back half of this album kills.

Ummmmmmmm….. How ’bout St. Vincent’s “Surgeon.” The slick outro guitar solo alone does it for me.

Also, how did everyone get two downvotes? Am I doomed, too?

here are some that i don’t think have been mentioned:

frog eyes – “the fence feels its post” and its chaser, “the akhian press,” “ship destroyer,” or
“time reveals its plan at poisoned falls”
deerhoof – “kidz are so small”
neutral milk hotel – “communist daughter,” “the fool,” or “a baby for pree” (all actually under two minutes)
phosphorescent – “at death, a proclamation”
pixies – “oh my golly!”
the unicorns – “ready to die”

one that isn’t indie rock, but oh well:
vashti bunyan – “diamond day”

…and i also heartily second:
the microphones – “i felt your shape,” which i couldn’t believe didn’t make the list.

Props for putting Frog Eyes on this list. They always seem to get overlooked despite being one of the most consistent and interesting bands around. Paul’s tomb was a solid album bookmarked by two of their strongest songs yet. One of the few bands to score a 9.1on Pitchfork (for their second album, the astounding The Golden River) and kind of fall by the wayside afterwards. I guess their sound can be a bit overwhelming, especially at first, but it always pays off in the end.
