Eat your heart out Robert Pollard, Dollar Bar have just released an absolutely amazing song. If you can’t dig these Pavement-esque dolceties, then you are simply not human. The very cool guitar melody intermingling with the chugging, blue collar rhythms makes this song simply gorgeous, but the added touch of the xylophone makes it more irresistible than cake (there’s no context, cake always rules). The added plus of accusatorially delivered and cynical lyrics like ‘Everyone’s out on display, but that doesn’t make it OK’ means that you should be sold by ‘Everyone’s Everyone’s’ more so than Pol Pot was sold on destroying humanity. This song has more urban grit and red-tinted angst than the song’s video would disclose, and proves that Dollar Bill are well and truly back!
For those that aren’t great at interpreting accents in writing, that read New York Playlist. Why? Because I’m in the big fucking apple yo. And because New York has some of the greatest music of all time, it would be only right to honour the motherland of alternative music, and create a humble playlist in it’s honour. The kind of flow of this playlist is old school well known stuff, then moving to the 2000 era, hip-hop then underground garage/lo-fi/noise, some more well-known indie shit, and finally weird motherfuckers. All of it from New York, the home of How I Met Your Mother and Friends.
