Track of the year?
but doubt it is better than heavy water/i'd rather be sleeping by grouper
or pretty much all of Weird Era
go up a notch near the end it's like adrenaline, and then you realise you've been listening to a fantastic record.
Twilight At Carbon Lake is fucking sex though.. And Agoraphobia's beautiful.
In my book, it's neck and neck with No Lucifer.
Everyone who mentioned Twilight at Carbon Lake is completely right though - that song is absolutely stunning. It's rare that someone can talk about a song they've written in advance and actually describe it anywhere close to how it actually sounds, but that Pitchfork interview with Bradford from a while back where he calls it "kind of a doo-wop, 50s/early 60s, Everly Brothers, but through this kind of schizophrenic lens. So it has this really cathartic end, but it starts out really simple" is pretty spot on.
I cant really choose one off the album I always listen to it whole.
My track would probibly be....
Clunk Click Every Trip by Peverelist
In terms of the album Twilight is amazing but that song could be the best
like VHS Dream.
And Meho Plaza 'The Beach' or Beach House 'Gila' are both much better (in my opinion, of course)
but the opening sounds like the soundtrack to some football highlights compilation or something.
I think it both succeeds and fails because by their standards it sounds like quite a conventional indie-rock song
