If you read Pigeons & Planes regularly, you know we've got a thing for catchy music.

    Holy shit. You guys have no concept of what “catchy” means, do you? The Mikky Ekko song isn’t catchy at all, and the Lapsley song… WTF? Do you seriously think anyone finds this downtempo ambient shit “catchy”?

    This is especially embarrassing considering that there are dozens of truly catchy songs you could’ve picked but left off, like “Rescue, Mister” by Trust, “Love Letters” by Metronomy, “100 Lovers” by Tennis, “Murakami” by Made in Heights, “Stop Playing with My Heart” by Avid Dancer, or literally any song on the new Temples album. For fuck’s sake.
