A list I made upon realizing that Carry The Zero by Built To Spill might be my favorite song.
  1. has jangly guitars
    See: Pavement, Built to Spill, Q and Not U, early Kings of Leon. Basically late 90s/early 00s indie rock.
  2. has syncopated drums
    See the jangly guitars list
  3. is by or reminiscent of the Talking Heads
    Oh, I like synths and dance pop too!
  4. does that thing where it builds until it bursts
  5. features handclaps
  6. is derivative or a combo of the things I already like
    Oh Man The Future by De Lux is like if the Talking Heads and LCD Soundsystem did a duet and I guess I'm ok with that? You can be derivative as long as you're derivative of things I like! http://bit.ly/1LPxN7u
