Up late with bad stomach juju. 

Downloaded the St. Vincent record earlier this evening, and I'm now fully obsessed with the lead track, "Now Now".  This also prompted me to consider my favorite songs of 2007, thus far.

In alphabetical order:

Andrew Bird, "Heretics"
Battles, "Atlas"
Bloc Party, "I Still Remember"
Cornelius, "Fit Song"
Deerhoof, "The Galaxist"
Dungen, "Familj"
Feist, "My Moon My Man"
The Forms, "Knowledge in Hand" / "Red Gun" / "Bones" / "Getting It Back"
Interpol, "Mammoth"
LCD Soundsystem, "Us V Them"
Peter Bjorn and John, "Up Against The Wall"
The Sea and Cake, "Left On"
The Shins, "Sleeping Lessons"
St. Vincent, "Now, Now"
Stars, "Midnight Coward"
Wilco, "Side with the Seeds"
"Mammoth"? Really? I just can't get into that one for some reason. I think "Pace Is the Trick" is my favorite thus far, though the album as a whole is slightly underwhelming.

I'm kind of obsessed with Feist's "1234", ever since I heard it on HBO. Fantastic song.
"Mammoth" is the only song on that album that I can tolerate, actually. On the whole, I think the album is kinda lame.
I'm with you on 'Mammoth' and 'Our Love to Admire' in general. I give that album a star and a half out of five, but Mammoth is a good song.

Here are some of my favorite tunes this year, in similar fashion:
Air, "Space Maker"
Battles, "Ddiamondd"
Andrew Bird, "Plasticities"
Bjork, "Innocence"
Rob Crow, "Up"
Field Music, "Give It Lose It Take It"
Iron & Wine, "Carousel" (which reminds me -- did I ever YSI this for you, or was I a huge forgetful dick about it)?
Of Montreal, "Suffer For Fashion"
Pinback, "Devil You Know"
The Shins, "Red Rabbits"
St. Vincent, "Jesus Saves, I Spend"
Laura Veirs, "Don't Lose Yourself"
Wilco, "Side With the Seeds"
Re: I&W - I think you'd said you were going to YSI, but I'm not sure I ever received a notification. And I think there was a Don Cab album that you were telling me to get, which is the only one that iTunes doesn't have (can't remember the name, either). There was nothing dick-ish about it, though!
