I think X/O needs to me at #1.
Agreed. Wounded Rhymes is a great record. A shame that the Stereogum sausage party left that one out!
Ariel Pink. Surprise, surprise. Regardless of that, I bought my ticket today. Pretty excited about Animal Collective, Fleet Foxes, and James Blake.
Agreed on the Black Keys.
I loved Local Natives (if we’re in agreement that it came out this year), Spoon, and Surfer Blood this year. I know Astro Coast made the Honorable Mention catagory, but I think it should have ranked in there somewhere. Also, Arcade Fire, The National, and Best Coast deserve to be higher than where they are ranked. Am I the only person on earth who doesn’t like Ariel Pink?
I love Animal Collective, but their videos are stupid. Do you have to be baked out of your skull to get this shit?
This picture is seriously disturbing.
C’mon, you guys…where are the Hot Topic jokes?
Ditto for Detroit.
While I agree that today’s Ben Folds is deeply flawed, I think it’s unfair to say that Ben Folds Five-era Ben Folds isn’t pretty good.
