Yes, Balkans! Man, that self-titled album is seriously so good, one of my go-to summer driving records. Broyles absolutely BELTS those songs.

Definitely reminds me of a sadder Hot Chip. Still poppy/catchy, but with some more melancholy. I like it. “Pop music for the night bus” is a great description

Reminds me of Sean O’Neal at The AV Club. Hilarious

Shogun’s voice is one of the best out there right now. I am really looking forward to this record—their debut is a go-to driving album for me.

Agreed. It’s probably my favorite album of his (or, it’s the one I put on most), though I get how Odelay/Sea Change are basically untouchable (and great!).

I thought they were from Memphis, not Florida?

So goddamn excited. Got into this band HARD in 2012 and haven’t looked back.

Shit, even Do You could be a great intro to the band.

You Got Yr. Cherry Bomb and I Summon You, definitely. Maybe Jonathan Fisk, since the guitars chug along so gloriously?

I’ll be honest, I heard this on the radio last week sans context (no idea who it was) and it sounded like any other generic country song on the radio, which is to say Not Very Good. I like some of the stuff this guy does, but I don’t get what makes this particular song better than anything else on country radio.

But Sturgill Simpson…. I can get behind that guy.

Ambulance LTD <3 — so good, so underrated, so unknown. Great list and retrospective!

“Pretty Machines” is INCREDIBLE. That guitar line would make Julian Casablancas jealous. And the saxophones? Yep. Yep.

Thanks for this. Sad that it even needs to be said, but it needs to be fucking said.

Everyone realizes that this is an Arrested Development reference and that Forget-Me-Now Pills are roofies, which is exactly what he slipped her, yes?

Anyway, this kind of stuff is depressing as hell, and if he’s guilty (wouldn’t surprise me at all) I hope he rots in fucking prison.

This is great. Her sound is one of those that I really connect with for whatever reason. This SOUNDS really wonderful, too, even with K. Parker not at the production controls.

See, I was thinking At Least That’s What You Said was sorely missing.

Wilco has too many great songs. Incredible that they’re including 38 (!) tracks and pretty much anyone can still say, “Well, what about _____!?”

This is, no kidding, absolutely incredible. I would kill for an entire album of covers like this.
