in the city (extended version)
It's been a painfully slow (i.e., boring) holiday week around the blogs, so I thought I'd revisit a few songs from earlier in the year that shouldn't be forgotten when you're compiling those year-end "best songs" lists. First up: Chromatics' "In the City." Since I first posted this one back on the 4th day of 2007, it's become one of my favorite (and most played) songs of the year, and it remains the best song to emerge from the Italians Do It Better crew, in what turned out to be a banner year for those guys. The band recently (like, today) made the 7+ minute extended version -- which appears on the In the City 12", as well as the After Dark comp -- available for free download on their myspace page.
