Listen, Dammit!: Annuals - "Sore"

In my list of favorite indie rock acts, Annuals rank high on the list. Their music is complex, vibrant, dark, and ecstatic all at once. Their 2006 album Be He Me is a must if you love bands like Broken Social Scene, Arcade Fire, and the like. They were one of the highlights of last year's Lollapalooza festival in Chicago, but unfortunately many people have still never heard of them while bands like the two I just mentioned continue to cement their status as indie gods.

Annuals, however, deserve a listen.

Below is the video for "Sore" from their recent Wet Zoo EP. It is a bizarre but touching piece of animation, and the song itself is one of the most beautiful pieces I've heard in a long time. Hopefully it is a glimpse of what is to come from their new album due out later this year.
