jamz of 2008: the school - let it slip

The School take the whole girl group revival thing and don't stink it up by pretending to actually be a girl group (hello, Pipettes!), instead they take the GG sound and give it some guts and punky perkiness. Plus vocalist Liz has a voice with plenty of melancholy soul and absolutely no annoying look how soulfully I can sing nonsense (hello, Duffy!). "Let it Slip" is brilliantly sad yet still perfectly danceable and reminds me of the Comet Gain (yes, them again - sorry) songs that Sara would sing. Hopefully plans are afoot for a full-length album in 2009 - I'm already saving a spot on my 2009 t-ten list for it.
