Zane Lowe was joking about James Murphy, Right?
Oh, okay, and it was actually two people
And somehow, I forgot Kurt Vile – Wakin’ on a Pretty Day and Chance The Rapper – Chain Smoker
Man, it has been such a GOOD year for music!
Has seriously only one person mentioned Smith Westerns – Varsity? (do a CTRL+F search) I can’t believe you guys
That’s my number one pick, others are as follows:
The National – I Should Live In Salt, Don’t Swallow The Cap, and Sea of Love
Disclosure – When A Fire Starts To Burn
Mikal Cronin – Shout It Out
Daft Punk – Get Lucky, Doin’ It Right (Does Touch count?)
Vampire Weekend – Step, Don’t Lie, Unbelievers
CHVRCHES – The Mother We Share, Recover, Gun
Oh yeah, and Wakin on a Pretty Daze because duh.
At the risk of sounding redundant, I have to say Modern Vampires of the City by Vampire Weekend, Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories, and Trouble Will Find Me from The National. Trouble especially was not that interesting at first, but after the first few listens hooks seemed to come from nowhere. I’m also really liking Obsidian from Baths and Woman from Rhye.
And I don’t mean that in a derogatory way, BTW.
YLT does MBV?
Song of the year goes to the writer, and record of the year goes to the performer.
If Chris Brown BEAT Frank Ocean. lol
I would probably have to say The White Album. Shows the band at a really interesting place, and has some of their best songs. I still love everything about Revolution, most likely my favorite Beatles song. Don’t judge me.
…and The Mountain Goats
Deerhoof is another one
It would have an even better chance at aoty if Honeycomb had been on here. That track is at least on par with anything on here.
There’s just the download, I think.
If this song (the song that this website calls “Today’s Supernatural”) isn’t on the album… Then what the fuck is this??!!
Has anyone else realized that there are quite a few (expectedly) incredible albums coming out in the next couple of months by bands that are wildlife themed? i.e. Animal Collective (obviously), Cat Power, Grizzly Bear, Band of Horses, etc.
So glad I preordered the deluxe edition from Domino.
I can’t believe how strangely compelling this is! But what else would you expect from the kings of modern neo-psychadelia?
