By now you’ve seen the new Wes Anderson trailer and decided he’s overrated like you always said or the genius you’ve always championed him to be. After all, it’s already lunchtime. And yes, there’s Owen Wilson and Jason Schwartzman and oh look, this time they have Adrien Brody. But what is that song? Is that song enough to turn my opinion of this movie?
Why, yes it is: It’s the Kinks.

Caribou’s Melody Day is the best song that’s been recorded by anyone in the history of the universe, and should almost certainly be included on the next Voyager Golden Record, although we shouldn’t be averse to destroying any alien hipsters that try and say they’ve got it on vinyl back home. That’s gold not vinyl you idiots.

Is there a jam of the summer yet? If that hasn’t been officially decided, I’d like to nominate The Tough Alliance’s Silly Crimes. It’s got some electro-Caribbean, which is of course very warm and summery. Also, they’re Swedish, which everyone knows is a lot of fun to be. Some of the lyrics are even laughs, for crying out loud. Or rather, for laughing out loud. LOL-jam of the summer right here. Let the sunshine in.
