Singles of the year: #80

80. Tropical Ice-Land – The Fiery Furnaces

Although it took me a long time to “get” this act, there was always something right from the off which made me return to their music time and again. This has happened a few times before over the years (the first Prefab Sprout album springs immediately to mind), and it’s always a good sign.

(If you’re still struggling: the quirk-ee! zan-ee! randomness beds down with increased familiarity, as the sharp angles convert to pleasurably familiar kinks.)
