Pitchfork’s Top Tracks Of The Year

With all of the lists coming at ya this time of year, it’s tempting to fuck selective attenuation and just ignore ‘em all — but today Pitchfork published their top tracks list and, naturally, we were down to take a look. The Knife, Hot Chip, and Clipse were the only artists to place two tunes in the top twenty, and the list features its least pretentious #1 yet. Worth a visit ’cause there are a ton of MP3s, but if anyone has a .zip of the whole bag we’d be much obliged. Check the list:

What a week for Timberlake, eh? “Roscoe” at #97 is low ball by any stretch, but it’s nice to see “Apple Orchard,” “Wolf Like Me” and “Young Folks” get some well-deserved love. The Fork’s releasing their album picks tomorrow, just ahead of the results for this year’s Gummy awards. And while we won’t tell you winners just yet, there was an outstanding showing for “Britney’s baby oven” as Most Overblogged Act. You probably won’t argue that, but we figure y’alls got thoughts on JT being #1 on this here tracks list. Get it off your chest.
