Relative Ways-…AND YOU WILL KNOW US BY THE TRAIL OF DEAD

One of those CDs to which that Pitchfork bestowed a 10.0. Not sure why (not that I don’t like it). This song I love. Just your standard indie rock, right? Wrong. This tune just rattles around and urges itself forward. It is awesome, even though the production feels thin, tinny and trebly at times.

    I love this song. It is right up there with Source tags and codes as the best tracks on the CD. I can listen to this song over and over. When the insistent Wrens-y guitar goes for the jugular, I just need to kind of jump up and down. I would say this song is a little Arcade Fire-y, but it predates Funeral by a few years, and hence is even more visionary. I like the Nirvana part in the chorus. Goddamn, this is a good song.

  • Thanks Pinko. Now I will have to listen to this song while he eats pork and watches Sox games. Thanks a heap!

  • AG only likes singer songwriters name Josh, Jack or James. The JJJ.
