Gospel Gossip Forkcasted on Pitchfork, My Head Explodes

Though reviewer Jonathan Garrett of Pitchfork calls Gospel Gossip's 2007 debut record Sing Into My Mouth "erratic album-- not without its charms, but certainly flawed..."--an assessment we stridently, but politely, disagree with--Garrett has nothing but kind words for Northfield, MN dream-pop trio's latest single, "Nashville," from its upcoming Dreamland EP. Calling the track "searing," Garrett goes on to praise the drumming, and the band's "vigorous tunefulness." Check it out here if you are so inclined. Meanwhile, my head is going to explode. ZOMG! Gospel Gossip's on Pitchfork!

Jon Jon -
I know! That was pretty nutty. I hope Chicago gets a day like that (although perhaps b/c of the favorable Andrew Bird coverage, we're already taken care of)

"certainly flawed".... really? How?

Good to see them on Pitchfork, though.

Here's what Garrett said about Sing:

"Gospel Gossip's debut, 2007's Sing into My Mouth, was one erratic album-- not without its charms, but certainly flawed enough to obscure the band's potential. Sometimes their gothic dream-pop sounded seductively ominous; at other times, it seemed sickeningly precious. It was the kind of tonally inconsistent record you might expect from a young band either too unsure or too afraid to commit"

As you can probably imagine, this assessment struck me as an odd way, b/c I thought that Sing was a strikingly assured and varied debut. But hey, to paraphrase one of the greats: folks are different; ergo, their strokes are different.
