One of the best Pitchfork writers, and as it turns out one of the best musicians to come out of America in a long while. This is the opening track of his new EP, which is available for free on Soundcloud:
I think it's absolutely wondrous - I've described it as "pretty much how I WANT Animal Collective to sound in my fantasy dreamworld if they by some chance discovered one (1) melodic sensibility" and "like musical crack to me" - it's one of my absolute stone-dead favourite tracks of 2010.
If you like it, search 'Dominique Leone' on Spotify, and listen to both his albums. They're brilliant. The guy worships XTC, The Beach Boys, Cardiacs, The Boredoms, Max Tundra and all manner of art-rock groups - consequently his music is both challenging and utterly listenable, a hard trick to pull at the best of times.
