Soundcheck presents "Tough Critics" -- a video series starring Elisabeth, Onaje and Will, three fifth-graders from the Little Red School House in New York City. In each episode, the trio of burgeoning music critics takes on a new release -- and they don't pull any punches.
On the Tough Critic's playlist today: "Default," by the young English psych-pop band Django Django.
The group's self-titled debut was nominated for Britain's prestigious Mercury Prize in 2012, and has been hailed by critics as "a new modern classic." Will is on their side -- he thinks the band could break out in a few years. But Elisabeth thinks the song is neither modern, nor classic, as she puts it: "in a couple of years, no one will know this exists."
