    Wait till the chorus...this is gold.

    Devin Townsend is one of the most diverse artists out there...this is one of the best dancepop rock songs I've heard in a long time, but he's primarily known as one of the most influential extreme metal artists of the 90s and 00s. Man's an incredible talent

    Youtube quality sucks, Devin Townsend's production is a veritable wall of sound that needs really high quality audio to translate well, so if you care, listen to it at a much higher quality at the bottom of this page http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/blabbermouth.net/news.aspx?mode=Article&newsitemID=131585

    whoa.. definitely not catchy to my ears.

    I love that everybody likes different music, and I always try to understand what draws people to specific genres. I never say any song or style "sucks" just because I may not care for it.

    Oh yah I should have titled it "catchiest CHORUS"...there's honestly not much catchy anywhere else...it's more of a chop and mix DJs turf

    ...though I understand tastes very...how was that chorus NOT catchy? Hooky and danceable as anything. If you were put off by Devin's growly voice...well you're not the only one, but the girl sounds great to my ears.

    I love Devin Townsend. Ziltoid the Omniscient is one of my personal favorite albums.

    You mean ‘catchy’ like a disease? ;)

    This song grabs me by the ears and works its way into my head, so I feel it in my jaw and neck…

    From my favourite local group, Beach House

    Two videos of the song in question from Pitchfork:

    They’re currently on tour in Europe and play a show at Bush Hall in London this coming Wednesday (already sold–out unfortunately, though they’ll be back for two shows at the Roundhouse on March 13 and 14, one of which, for the moment at least, has tickets available).

    They’re in Paris, February 20, at La Maroquinerie. Thence, on to Belgium, the Netherlands, Scandanavia…
