Michael David Smith
Find Me On:
I know. I guess I was too busy rolling up my tongue and inserting it back in my mouth after it hit the floor.
The only disappointing thing about my first listen is that I didn’t hear anything about croissants. I’ll have to queue it up again.
If y’all are so sick of hearing Morrissey’s opinions then why are you reading and commenting on this article?
They gave us “Shallow” too, yo.
Come to SXSW, do it for free.
Or ACL which has had some decent lineups in the past couple of years. All tickets under 200.
Or better yet, come to Fun Fun Fun Fest for round 170 with no fees.
Or Psych Fest, or Chaos in Tejas, or Free Week or other dirt cheap festivals in Austin.

Kanye has been the most consistently amazing performer I’ve seen over the past 5 years. His set at ACL this year was the best performance with the most incredible on stage visuals I’ve seen since Daft Punk first played Coachella with their crazy pyramid.
Soundgarden sucked live in 1994 when I was in junior high. Anyone still paying good money for them needs to give up the ghost.
I’ll buy it! I can wait to hang out with all the bros who’ll come to see Pulp reunite and Jeff Mangum play a solo set. We are gonna crush a ton of Tecate chillaxin to their jams!
If people stopped standing around like zombies waiting for Radiohead at festivals it would make seeing their name on the Coachella lineup so much more exciting.
Shocked and awed that Antlers didn’t make it anywhere on P4K’s list. Thought it was easily the best album of the year. Yet this list is still the best I’ve seen.
They are both also now completely inept at listening to any bands. SPIN just ordered any bands that had 3 or more releases for the most part. Doesn’t look like any new bands cracked the top 20 other then Janelle Monae and Best Coast. And Best Coast has had a half dozen EPs and singles before Crazy For You. In a year when almost all the best music was from new bands, this list is pretty useless.
But at least in the Spin list Bruce Springsteen and whatever Bob Dylan and Robert Plant released aren’t in the top 5. (Just looked at 21-40, Plant did make 35)
Love Deerhunter and Helicopter, but that was one of the worst performances I have ever seen on a late night talk show. It was a dumb song choice for a national audience and sounded absolutely terrible. I liked the excessive smoke machines because it gave me something to laugh at before I went to bed.
