I chose St. Vincent's "Digital Witness"
I thought this was a really interesting song because I perceived everything to be up front. All of the various instruments seem to be competing with each other for dominance in the "close" range, which seems to fit in perfectly with the lyrical theme (I'll share my theory on that shortly). There is virtually nothing that feels distant except for a few sections of backing vocal, but even that is in the middle instead of far back. I also felt that some of the sounds that would traditionally be centered were just barely off from the center, creating a slightly off-kilter feel. More specifically, I perceived the lead vocals and what I assume to be synth bass just to the left of center. The horns, which mimic the bass line, are clearly on both sides and are slightly out of synch with each other further adding to the song's odd feel. The only instrument that I perceived to be dead center was the drums, making the funky beat very immediate. This pattern shifts during the chorus as the bass, cymbals, and vocals flutter rapidly between extremes on the left and right.
For a song that seems to be pointing out absurdities of modern media (reality TV, YouTube, etc.) and how we react to them, I think the production approach is brilliant. The modern media is very in-your-face and there are a lot of noises competing for our attention, just like the various sounds in this song. There is very little subtlety and the pounding funk of the rhythm feels like a hammering heartbeat. There is an almost manic feel to the overall structure that works perfectly with the lyrics.
