Pants! on fire.

May 2nd, 2008 · 3 Comments

Yes, my boyfriend lived with them in college, and yes, they’re some of my best friends, but Pants Yell’s! recent Pitchfork Review really knocked my socks off! Known across the board to be extremely finicky and often political about music, Pitchfork gave Pants Yell’s latest album, Alison Statton, a 7.5 rating! That’s huge!

Over dinner and drinks last evening, my boyfriend and I discussed the 7.5 rating with Pants Yell! frontman Andrew Churchman, deciding that in retrospect Pitchfork would only award a band like Arcade Fire the coveted 10.0 rating. Of note: While doing some fact checking, Neon Bible, Arcade Fire’s most recent studio alblum, only earned an 8.4. In fact, during this same fact checking session, I discovered that Pants Yell! beat out these recent releases:

1. Raveonettes, Lust, Lust, Lust (7.4 rating)

2. Hot Chip, Made in the Dark (7.0 rating)

3. Boris, Smile (6.4 rating)

Congratulations Pants Yell! this Pitchfork nod (and glaringly positive review) can only mean good things to come! Be sure to check out Pants Yell! at: http://www.myspace.com/pantsyellmusic, and check out the review here.
