Song of the Day 4/16/09: Suckers - It Gets Your Body Movin'
Suckers, eh? I give a rather begrudging tip of the hat (I hate it when people are wittier than I am) to how accurately my reaction to their music was telegraphed right inside their band name. As in, yes: maybe I should be past subtle, atonal guitar twang, bombastic horns and worn-around-the-edges vocal delivery, but goddamned if it doesn't get me anyway. "It Gets Your Body Movin'" cribs from Sunset Rubdown's yelpiness, from Neutral Milk Hotel's wobbly saws and whistles, from Grizzly Bear's deep metallic percussion, and none of it matters. It all falls into place, and damn is it sweet when it does.
