Clem Snide – “The Curse of Great Beauty” from The Ghost of Fashion 
Clem Snide frontman Eef Barzelay is almost too literate to be taken seriously. But he’s just so damned clever. I think this song is not necessarily a great introduction to the band’s sound, but I can’t get this song out of my head, so I unleash it to the blog-public. It’s a masterpiece of understatement; almost strictly vocals on top of a little organ warble. Check out all of Your Favorite Music for a better sense of why Clem Snide is so good.
