Stuck In My Head: Les Savy Fav

Les Savy Fav have been dominating my iPod lately. Let's Stay Friends has officially made it to the list of albums that consistently resurface for extended play every few months*

This video sort of sums up everything a love and hate about hipsters. The forced quirkiness, the intentional nonchalance, the meticulous dishevelment. All that is lame and makes me nuts. But the music kicks ass, the girl is oddly cute, and the whole thing comes together and is pretty awesome.

*Who else is on that list? Descendents' Somery, Cake's Fashion Nugget, Neil Young's Live in Massey Hall, 1971, Elliot Smith's Either/Or, Radiohead's In Rainbows and OK Computer, The Clash's London Calling, Hole's Live Through This, Nirvana's Unplugged in New York, and a few others. And we're talking about years and years. I've had some of these albums for well over 15 years, and still go back to them.
