19. Gang Gang Dance - House Jam (2008)

At the start of their career, Gang Gang Dance made extremely difficult music. It was all a lot of art noise, which is all well and good, but sometimes you just need a beat or something to latch on to. With their last couple of albums, however, the band has done just what I hoped they would. They started to include more of a pop sensibility into their music while still remaining extremely artistic, and this song is the apex of that change. House Jam is where everything finally came together, and it sounds like a mix of sounds from the 80s with something that could only come from the present. You can find this song on their 2008 album Saint Dymphna, which is also very good.
