this has been the big album of the spring for me. it's a sweet compilation of stuff from the uk’s c86 movement (rough trade put out a similar comp a couple years back i understand might be even better), and it makes a pretty persuasive case that “jangle” is the best adjective in the english language. there’s a ton of amazing songs, but i think my favorite is this delightful bit of snobbery that’s so good it could mention itself:

c-86 stuff is amazing. the boy girl/harmonies, layers of fuzz & pop sensibilities are about all you need.
