Not to be a shameless hipster jerk or anything... but I just finally put some headphones on my ears and blasted some Dirty Projectors on my iPod, and let's just say it was magical. I have been trying to avoid this conclusion for several months now, but it's inevitable. I'm a prick, and I enjoy really stereotypically indie bands.
I have known this for about 4 months now, though:
"Knotty Pine" by David Byrne + Dirty Projectors is my favorite song of the year.
