Everything ends eventually, and our two-week winning streak for our weekly Pitchfork homage, Pick of the ‘Fork, came to a crashing halt today. More than half of you sniffed out our decoy sentence, the takeout-riffic “[His] guitar noodles are present throughout, creating a slightly rancid sonic lo mein.” So–it’s back to the drawing board for us. Next week, we’ll try and think up a sentence that isn’t so stinky.
This week’s other honorees, and the reviews from which they were taken:
“Yet for all the omg! surrounding this British pop chimera, it plopped onto the internet like a hunk of molasses.” The Good The Bad and the Queen, “Herculean” (Three stars from Adam Moerder, and 22% of the vote)
“And don’t forget to rap like Cookie Monster’s pretzel-munching grandpa for a few bars too.” Ying Yang Twins, “Dangerous (ft. Wyclef Jean) (One and a half stars from Ryan Dombal, and 16% of the vote)
“The song in total describes a gentle pitch and yaw, like liquid sloshing in a bucket…” White Magic, “The Light” (Four and a half stars from Brian Howe, and 11% of the vote)
See you next Friday!
UPDATE: In the meantime, you should take a gander at what Law & Order‘s Lennie Briscoe has to say about some records that were recently reviewed by Pitchfork. (Who knew that he’d like “Chain Hang Low” so much?)
