Song o' the Week #21

This will actually be song o' the week for last week, and I'll give you a new one this Friday. Like we previously stated, there are some changes a-comin' for the blog, so stick with us for a little while longer while we work it all out. The real song o' the week for me is off Sunset Rubdown's upcoming album Dragonslayer, but because it's not out yet, it's rather frowned upon to post a song from it. But when the release date comes, expect a glowing review. Anyway, on to this week. Which is actually last week.

Last Tuesday we saw some great releases, including the new Grizzly Bear album Veckatimest, Phoenix's Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, and Mandy Moore's Amanda Leigh. Okay, the only one I really enjoy/care about is Veckatimest, and it seems like the rest of the world tends to agree. After its ridiculously early leak, we got a low quality feel for this masterpiece, along with those increasingly annoying ">" comparisons with Animal Collective. It took a few listens to win me over, but Veckatimest eventually turned into a beautiful mosaic of harmonies, and is really worth picking up if you haven't already. To win you over, here's possibly my favorite song from the album, which was debuted before the leak on late night talk shows. Which reminds me: make sure you watch the debut of Conan on the Tonight Show tonight, as it's sure to be gold.
