In rotation at the moment...

The Breeders, "Glorious"
Deliberate in the manner of an inexorable approach; a lead guitar in the chorus reminiscent of a truck reversing; and Steve Albini's production - all that presence still novel, even after two albums of it with the early Pixies stuff...

The Pretenders, "Stop Your Sobbing"
Excellent handclaps; Chrissie Hynde's vocals sounding somewhat Nico-esque. To die for: the "uh-uh-uh-uh" bit towards the end, and the bass riff in the outro.

Sean Paul, "Get Busy"
Again, excellent handclaps. Crazy syncopation... I'll leave the critical breakdown to Tim, but suffice it to say... No, I'll just leave the breakdown to Tim.

The Jackson Five, "Can You Feel It"
This song makes me want to dance like I'm in a disco film clip - lots of pointing at random things as I sit at the laptop with it pumping through the headphones.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Art Star
