I hate to be a contrarian, apparently people are super into that new Simian Mobile Disco single that I mentioned not liking yesterday, but I must confess… in the long line of great Jay Reatard songs, this new track falls toward the bottom for me. It just doesn’t do much.
Jay Reatard - It Ain't Gonna Save Me
Compare that to one of my faves from his his singles collection of last year:
Jay Reatard - See/Saw
Or this excellent track from his ’06 release, Blood Visions:
Jay Reatard - My Shadow
Or one of my favorite tracks from last year, Deerhunter covering another track from Blood Visions:
Deerhunter - Oh It's Such a Shame(Jay Reatard Cover)
