Animal Collective – “My Girls”

As an astute commenter notes in Kanye’s blog:

SORTA SOUNDS LIKE BLUE MAN GROUP, OR WHAT THEY’D SOUND LIKE WHEN RELEASING MUSICS. THEIR TYPO VIDYO, ALSO. BLUE DUDES ARE UNDERRATED. MAYBE NOT, BUT ANIMAL COLLECTION DEF IS.

Could anyone say it better? In my heart of hearts I saw Kanye loving this song, maybe taking it to a “Stronger” or “Swagga Like Us” sampling stardom.  He just wants Louis V. walls and Gucci slabs for his girls.

Franz Ferdinand – “Ulysses”

The new Franz is a fun record, but they’re one of those hot-shot debut bands (See: Strokes, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, etc.) with a unique sound that seem destined for diminishing returns with each new release.  Franz has basically opted to stick to the groundwork they laid for themselves in the first record with a few pleasant diversions along the way (“Eleanor, Put Your Boots On” and “Lucid Dreams” come to mind). The Strokes stuck to their panache for their second album and went clusterfuck on the third, while CYHSY opted straight for the clusterfuck in their sophomore LP, which probably suits them.  Still, in this adderall-addled world, it seems that if you’re not constantly reinventing yourself you can count on the common web-surfing urchin passing you by for a video of a dude getting kicked in the nuts.
