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.
That She Don’t Use Jelly cover was in 1995. I’d say it was more than just a few years back. But, I agree that it is a phenomenal cover.
Colin’s looking a lot like Crispin Glover these days…
Definitely! Or There’s Nothing Wrong With Love. Hell, Perfect From Now On is way better, too!
I was there too! Seriously phenomenal!
Saw them tonight and this video doesn’t even come close to how great they are in person. Go see them if you get a chance!
Yeah, I agree with the comment about it being a grower. I was lukewarm about it the first couple times, but now I’m really digging Sick Muse, Gold Guns Girls, and Blindness.
Who the hell listens to these shit radio shows?
Seriously. What the hell is going on with his hair?
Alright. That video is terrifying.
Yes. That is the correct answer.
Cease to Begin was 2007.
No kidding! Los Campesinos! is definitely in my top 5.
I’m not surprised that Deerhoof, Portishead, and Why? didn’t make the Paste list, but they would be in my top 25. I AM shocked that Spiritualized, both Los Campesinos! albums, Ra Ra Riot, and The Black Keys didn’t make the cut…
