Pants Yell!, "Two French Sisters"

Cambridge pop dons administer one of the most wrenching album-closers in recent memory. Sparse nice-boy plucking washes over the plaintive narrative that, from other lips, might seem bitter and solipsistic. Effortlessly cites the Smiths, but this twee-archivist trio — the record is titled Alison Statton — feels radically unchained to specific forebears. Epic, immediate, definitive — and the spoken interlude is reason enough to leave that office and never come back.
