Autre Ne Veut - Anxiety

Pitchfork Best New Music award for the album and 2 Pitchfork Best New Track awards already. I'm enjoying it a great deal, I think many of you will as well (not you, IWB & Martha). Here's the PR release description of the album:

Quote:
Anxiety is the full-length follow up to Autre Ne Veut's 2010 s/t debut. The influences range from David Byrne to Lee Scratch Perry, Laurie Anderson & Annie Lennox to Katy Perry & Rihanna. ANV's primary influence is karaoke- the solitary person singing along with their favorite song. In karaoke we get to be someone bigger than who we usually are. There are club bangers on Anxiety, for sure; "Counting" a cybernetic sea shanty tips its hat to Timbaland, and opening track "Play By Play" rolls out like a slowly evolving Top 40 operetta with nods to Dr. Luke and Patti LaBelle in equal measure.
Here are the two "Best New Track" songs:

Autre Ne Veut - Play By Play [Official Single] - YouTube

Autre Ne Veut - Counting [Official Single] - YouTube

Based on the number of responses, nothing would change.

Not wanting to sound like a dick or anything but here it goes - your own stance on the band is good enough to me. I always find this "Pitchfork Best New Music/Best New Track so it must be good" thing a bit silly.

Anyways, thanks for the suggestion. The name intrigued me because I thought it was a French band at first, and I like me some French music. But I hardly have anything against Brooklyn music too.

Dear Scumbo,

I actually downloaded this from iTunes on Wednesday and I plan to listen to it this afternoon while I am charting. I will report my impressions. Please retract your death wish.

I do not hope that iYup, djerdap (though he sounds like a dick), and DB die violently.
 

I hope they die in the in their sleep.

I told you three days ago that this album was amazing and I was glad you recommended it.

It's my 4th or 5th favorite this year so far.

Pretty good stuff. I'm enjoying the R&B groove.

Hmm... not bad. I quite enjoy the way both tracks end. Might check out the album.

If it got two best new tracks and a BNM for the album it must have been streaming on p4k advance.
