The folks at Pitchfork have taken the week of from reviewing new music--although, to their credit, they've been quite busy with another entertaining task: Counting down the top 500 tracks of the '00s.
And, by my count, at least three acts with North Texas ties got some love from Pitchfork's list: St. Vincent's "The Strangers," comes in at No. 492 (for another rendition of the song, check out the above clip our friends at Subservient Experiment clued us into today); Midlake's "Roscoe" checks in at No. 309; and Kelly Clarkson's "Since U Been Gone" charts at a very respectable No. 21.
