like where is Sleigh Bells? and Local Natives? Mumford and Sons? and some of the other great bands to debut this year?
ok, i really like Stereogum and have been checking it out for 6 months, but i just signed up so i could comment this. i hope 2010 hasnt sucked this bad because these bands and artists SUCK. honestly. i counted 7 that i liked at all and might want to investigate more. most of these artists i decided just cant write melodies or decent music, so they make a bunch of noise, turn down the vocal volume while cranking the reverb and proceed to make just crappy songs. honestly. i know somebody is gonna agree with me.
and dont comment this and say, you must like Nickelback or Ke$ha or some bull like that. a couple of these guys are good. but the majority suck big time.
