Klaxons: 24, You: 0

Fisherspooner - Never Win (2005) [stream]

If you haven't heard of the Klaxons, the gang of indie kids (the new jocks) will be around to metaphorically kick your pale ass with their hard-hitting, pretentious sarcasm. Tight synths are worn like jerseys while vintage references and finds are touted with the pride of plastic golden trophies and lapel-mantled American Eagles. The pounding strong-Strokes guitars sprint the bases and turn the joyous hook towards home with stylishly slanted headphones worn with immortality and an aloof attitude towards sliding in "safe". In this world, son, passionately soaring vocals will always win and will always be there to heckle you into self-loathing with their unwaivering coolness. If you convince mom to buy you a record player they might invite you to bring it to a listening party... or just laugh when you try to fit it into your locker.

We have yet to hold a fischerspooner theme party. Mike better get up here soon - his hair is PERFECT for the Emerge video.

Your package lit up my life. I was impressed by how adequately sealed it was - certainly meeting the United States Postal Service's standards.
