Prinzhorn Dance School - "I Want You"
Wymond Miles - "The Thirst"
For romance, my favorite mushy indie rock songs came from albums without much buzz at all. DFA records rock duo Prinzhorn Dance School took a long time to make their second record, wrestling with the challenge of following an ultra-minimal debut that seemed like a final statement, already made. The lovely "I Want You" has zero wasted motion, yet seems fuller than their first stuff anyway. Fresh & Onlys' guitarist Wymond Miles snuck out on his own to make a big, trembling goth rock album. Its best songs, like "The Thirst", are tastefully restrained and constructed, even when they practically levitate with late-night yearning.
