El Presidente: Turn This Thing Around

With their feisty dance-rock riffs and falsetto vocals, this Scottish quintet edges neo-glam-rock ever so close to camp (and truly it's never far away), but for the crazy sincerity of its exhilarating chorus. When Dante Gizzi (great name) sings "Let me go back to where we were," the melody not only resolves impeccably but I hear an unexpected dollop of genuine poignancy, which to me raises "this thing" from catchy buzz-hit to a true musical highlight of 2006.
