No, I totally agree — *has* to be w/sax.

Ladytron + better songwriting – cartoonish icy gothiness + outsized M83 melodrama = awesome/Chvrches

Holy shit, thanks! I’d never heard of Baby Dayliner, but I instantly love them/him. I guess I’m a sucker for nearly self-parodic over-emotive singing. That’s what you get for being a Morrissey / Scott Walker / Jarvis Cocker die hard, I guess. And yes: Majical Cloudz is *amazing* — Impersonator is feeling like my album of the year, and I adore the new National and Daft Punk albums. And maybe it would’ve made more sense to say that the Diamond Rings sounds like Welsh, combined with the skinny guy from They Might Be Giants circa “Birdhouse in Your Soul.” The singer from Merchandise fits into all of this, too….

But yeah: Baby Dayliner!

I can’t be the only one who thinks he sounds like the guy from Diamond Rings, but I never see that.

“The Real Thing” is the best Dandy Warhols song ever.

It’s bullshit without “Leave Me Alone” or “Procession,” their two best songs (not necessarily in that order).

Best Album: A. C. Newman — “Shut Down the Streets”

“Ugly new *houses.*” And I believe that the “Bigmouth” backing vocals are pitch-shifted Morrisseys.

Smiths fanatics of the world: unite and be pedantic.

Coincidental resemblance to the title of A.C. Newman’s “The Palace at 4 AM”?

Lou Barlow is spinning (round and round) in his … chair (BECAUSE HE’S STILL ALIVE).
