What, me diss Pitchfork
? Not when we pretty much feel the same way
about Hercules & Love Affair
, of course (though we will have to agree to disagree about Antony & the Johnsons). Dudes ain't altogether shooting blanks this year, between Magnetic Fields and Vampire Weekend, though I vowed never to ever play that Atlas Sound record so I'll never know just how off the MARC they were (tee hee). What's with all these quality self-titled hypes?
P.S. the talented Jayson Greene
has given up one of his best pieces ever
in this week's Voice
as well, putting the unwitting Play-Doh of Rick Ross through the analytical fun factory.
