Early lead for song of the year 2009

"Summertime Clothes" by Animal Collective, on their new record Merriweather Post Pavillion. It's hard to imagine that these guys could write a cliche pop song, but I'll be damned if it doesn't make me all magically happy, singing the Panda Bear harmonies at the top of my lungs every time I hear it.

It's only January, but if there's going to be a better song released in 2009, it'll have to be super bettery better.


Um, but seriously, I do need to get the Animal Collective album

You'll hear plenty better songs this year, Dan; you just need to cultivate a love for Pavement.
