HOLY MOTHER OF GOD!! PITCHFORK LOOKS INTO THE SUN!! DETAILS BELOW...

I just noticed that Pitchfork reviewed Tegan & Sara's So Jealous yesterday. If you've been following this story, you may be aware that Pitchfork's reaction to any mention of Tegan & Sara is normally to start softly muttering "there's no place like home, there's no place like home" while rocking back and forth and hugging its knees, eyes closed and fists clenched tightly. Sometimes they have to run an extra Wilco feature to help take the edge off.

They gave the album a 3.4, but of course.

Classic line from the review: "Still, I can't spare So Jealous the critical scalpel just because it's inexplicably below the mainstream radar."

"inexplicably below the mainstream radar" = "reviewed in the NY Times, on the best-of-2004 list of the New Yorker's music critic, made Rolling Stone's top 50 of 2004, played on Conan O'Brien, etc., but we're just getting around to mentioning this band for the first time ever, four months after the album came out."

Incidentally, did you know that Wilco are re-releasing A Ghost Is Born? Full details at Pitchfork!
