yeasayer – tightrope.

This a contender for most played track of 2009.  Only a couple days in the box and it’s at least top 3.  Thanks, Kev-oh.  This shit makes me wanna eat clouds.

I’m jumping the gun again, cause I haven’t bothered to check out the rest of their shit yet.  But I’m a big fan of ‘kick in the butt’ tracks.  Follow your dreams, get money, brush your shoulders off.  Whatever you wanna call it.  We all need it sometimes.  This is a primo example.

The driving drums, airy chords, and into the mountains vocals all say one thing to me:  GO!

Reading around, the song is over a couple years old.  The band made some noise at the 2007 SXSW, but really blew the fuck up at this year’s Bonnaroo festival, where everyone is saying they murdered.  This particular track was donated to the Dark Was the Night compilation where it sits with other bands that go well with your flannel shirt.
