[Editor's Note: Over the next couple of weeks, I'll be presenting my
favorite local songs of the year, counting down from No. 25 to No. 1,
one track a day. Right now, though, we take an in-depth look at song No. 13 on the
list--and feel free to click after the jump for a free download of the track.
Lastly, keep checking back to see how the list pans out, and, also
after the jump, check out songs No. 40-26 in the Top 40 list that will
update as it grows...]
No. 13: Binary Sunrise -- "Five Minutes"
It starts with what seems like a simple enough bassline--just an undulating, penetrating bounce to get the foot tapping away. But by the time Binary Sunrise's "Five Minutes" comes to its conclusion, that simple bassline proves more like a backbone, the support beam in an oddball pop track that will work its way into the innermost workings of your mind, grabbing ahold of whatever it can, and fighting valiantly to never relinquish its grasp.
