From Pitchfork's top 100

If this doesn't make you want to fuck something, you don't have a cock.

I already told you this kicks arse. But hey, it hasn't stopped kicking it, so I'm recommending it again. So does this. Australians, in case you are wondering, this is what a sense of humour sounds like.

Camera Obscura have been compared with Belle and Sebastian. The truth is, they don't suck in every way B&S suck. This is the evidence. Don't play it if you're not ready for a new love. The first album, Biggest Bluest Hifi, is even better.

***

The number one just sucks though. It's become fashionable (again) to love pop but this is just generic urban. Actually, a lot of the Pitchfork top 100 is bullshit RnB and awful hiphop. These genres are so flat dead that you have really to lift above the herd before you are making it. Not much of this does.

It hasn't been a particularly inspiring year for music, that's true. But if the best track is this turgid shite, well, roll on 2007, I say.
