"Riptide"- Vance Joy

Originally, this song angered me. A little irrational? Yeah, probably. I'm starting to resent the now-diminishing neo-folk wave.

However, now I'm more okay with it. It's insanely catchy, and while the lyrics are somewhat vapid, they have a few otherwise glimmering - eh, quirky - moments.

 The video gives the song another dimension, in my opinion. Anyway, judge for yourself. This blog isn't called "the Useless Critic" for nothing. 


  1. it's nice to see the guy from lumineers still getting work after the band broke up

  2. at the end of the year i'd like to do my top movies of the year - what do you think? it's not gone girl
