It’s not often that Pitchfork and I agree, heck even when we do it’s usually for different reasons. Luckily one of those occasions popped up the other day when upon their recommendation I gave a listen to The Big Pink’s “Dominos.” Woah, be careful listening to this while driving. Before you know it you will be doing 95 down a coastal highway in an awesome convertible, arm around ‘the girl,’Â as the camera slowly pulls back to reveal the skyline and the end credits to the next summer blockbuster roll. What I am saying here is “Dominos” is epic. Can we get more summer anthems with a quick and easy chorus that we can be singing along to by the end of the song? Enough of this lo-fi fuzz-bore “summer anthem” bullshit, I want fist-pumpers! The other two songs I have heard off of The Big Pink’s debut, A Brief History of Love, unfortunately fall flat for me but the LP comes out September 14th and I am hoping for at least one more gem/jam.
