Howard’s List

Hillary aide and part-time music critic Howard Wolfson‘s annual top ten album list is online here.

No word on what the junior Senator’s been listening too, but Wolfson likes Sleater-Kinney‘s new album. The banded started in “a space where women could make the personal political with a snarl…. Ten years later, Sleater-Kinney reacted to the war in Iraq and with lyrics like ‘Hey! Look around they are lying to you. Can’t you see it is just a silly ruse?’ decided to make the political personal.”

Also on the list, Antony, Coldplay, Franz Ferdinand, and some serious esoterica: “This year’s Arcade Fire is Clap Your Hands Say Yeah.”

That’s right.
