MP3: “Iranian Eyes” by The Lindsay
Kevin Elliott writes:
Alright, we are guilty. 2006 was undisputedly the “Year of The Lindsay”. But even if this pick is somewhat retroactive (little did we know last January that they were in the process of recording the album of the year), the coming months should be an endless horizon of opportunity for our great white hopes. Don’t deny the fact that the band’s magical debut, “Dragged Out,” isn’t on infinite repeat right fucking now. There’s nothing I can say about them (and the record) that hasn’t been said already. Sonic Youth too old? The Breeders too strung out? The Zombies playing state fairs? This is your new favorite band and their asses are waiting for your well-deserved kiss.
