By the way, did you see that one of her songs made the Pitchfork Top 100 Songs of 2008: http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/article/feature/147998-the-100-best-tracks-of-2008 That’s the clearest mark of indie/blog acceptance you can find. Although, Pitchfork’s list is extremely strange this year, way more dance-focused than the site’s general aesthetic and extremely anemic quality-wise. I guess what I’m saying is that their inclusion of her might, to some degree, be a token move as part of their ‘dance is cool. rock sucks’ pose from this year.
More generally, I’m curious as to what portion of this list has come across your radar. It’s a forcibly obscurantist list relative to Pitchfork’s own position in the ecosystem, but I wonder how it looks to you.
