Well, there's a shock, eh. Not being musically trained ourselves we're always impressed by Things We'd Never Be Able To Pull Off, Even With Tuition, and here in the late 2000s it seemed unlikely that anything purely new could be invented. Not that Atlas is entirely new ideas, of course, but the microscopic patchwork of influences heralded together and that you could still enjoy and dance to the avant-garde radio to it makes it completely unique if you ask us. In truth, any one of the top four would have conclusively won in most years, and our long-held LC! love nearly won out. In preparing this we had a listen to the demo version we heard and erroneously annotated last July (Les Incompetents?!) and was struck by how, apart from being able to hear Gareth's fabled closing monologue clearly, it all sounds very underpowered and far less attention grabbing. Excellent work, Dave Newfeld. Obviously we're counting down the days to Hold On Now, Youngster... as this phase of fanboyism's culmination. The rest of the supporting cast's no small fry either: Those Dancing Days is the third best track on their Scandinavian EP, Thou Shalt Always Kill seems to have drifted away from the conscious for most but a revisit reveals it to have retained its scene sideswipe excellence, while Let's Make Love... seems to improve with age. Some other notes: Bat For Lashes vied with Thirty Pounds Of Bone as the makers of the album we most regretted latching onto a year late, Cajun Dance Party and Example clearly aren't going to make anything half as good again but that's half the fun of singles, Grizzly Bear put on the best gig we saw in 2007 even if we were forced to miss the end of their set, and having been slightly dismissive of the Long Blondes before it was a judiciously placed track on our Generic Model Of MP3 Player while out one night early in the year that finally made Giddy Stratospheres click for us about two years after everybody else saw the light. So, there you go.
