First Best Song of The Year

No jive, this is the first great song I've heard this year.  It's a big ball of power-pop love, with catchy hooks and snotty lyrics, the Oohlas have crafted a perfect indie pop song for the 2009.  They blend their bleek outlook of a consumer-driven, fall in line with everybody else mentality with catchy hooks and even better vocals into a beautiful anthem.  It's the greatest song about $30,000 millionaires to date.

The song is on their Chinchilla EP which you can get here.

That's why I said it's the "first best song of the year." But, I haven't really heard a commercial song yet that floats my boat.

Agreed! I can't believe I'm not hearing this on XM and KEXP. Amazingly great song, thanks for tuning us in to it!

@ Anonymous: That's why I'm here, to turn people on to music they don't hear on the radio or maybe something they did and just glossed over.

I've had this song on repeat for the last few days now--good stuff.
