Admittedly, I’ve been slow to come around on this, but Jay Reatard is devastatingly awesome. With only a perfunctory listen, his tunes can sound like generic punk thrashes, but if you take a minute to think about what’s happening, it’s clear that his music is very clever and well thought out. Perfectly taut little destructive rock nuggets. “My Shadow” is one of my favorite songs of the year.
