The Notwist’s “Kong” Picked As One 2014’s Best Songs So Far By NPR

NPR Music’s Stephen Thompson called The Notwist’s “Kong” his favorite track of the year in a recent discussion on the subject on NPR (listen here), and while we are immensely grateful for the nod, we are not at all surprised. If “Kong” isn’t a perfect pop song, it’s damn close. It is also the lead-off track on our career-expansive playlist that we’re calling “The Notwist: A Beginner’s Guide”, which, if you aren’t familiar with their oeuvre, you should find a way to listen via one of the following streaming services. Also, check out the video, it’s almost too charming.

“Kong” is off of The Notwist’s Close to the Glass, available here.
