Not one mention of Owen Pallett? Seriously, guys.
I understand that Yeezus is pretty great, challenging and uncompromising music. But album of the year, particularly this year, really? The lyrics are just too weak for it to hold that title for me. Props for Deafheaven’s deservedly high ranking, though.
Yeah, you fucking nailed it man.
Not loving the majority of it, but Giorgio by Moroder is tops.
Hahaha shit. I scanned down the list far too fast clearly and must have missed it. Sincerest apologies Stereogum. Worst thing is that I actually think its placing is around about right.
Rather unoriginal but it has to be Revolver. Such a perfect mix between gorgeous pop melodies and innovative experimentation. Genius.
Democrats do stand for Liberalism: Modern Liberalism (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Modern_liberalism_in_the_United_States). Liberalism is such a broad term though, that encompasses so many conflicting ideologies (neo-liberalism vs. social liberalism), that it’s use today in any political discourse is simply an exercise in futility.
Also, The Monitor is such a great album.
Yo RubJohn 2.0
Surely it must only be a matter of time until they are MASSIVE.
That albums not getting enough love. 100% gonna be my soundtrack to this summer (along with Japandroids obviously.)
Honeycomb aint even on Centiped hz! I’m convinced both of these records will be mind blowing.
No coverage of the breathtaking Gary Barlow/Cheryl Cole duet? This site is now off of my bookmarks.
The absence of The Macabees and Django Django shows how much British bands are ignored on American indie sites.
In fairness it works the other way around too, with American publications or websites giving precedence to American acts. Even taking that into consideration though, this list is still fucking tragic.
WOR was even better again. Brilliant band, record and performance.
I’m actually very happy that neither Gotham nor Honeycomb made it. (I was thoroughly underwhelmed.)
Distraught that Knock You Down still isn’t getting a proper release though :(
Far too many trolls on this, a bit of respect would be nice.
Dreadful, devastating news. RIP.
I really want to see that Younger Us video now.
Also, the album destroys.
No need for this. The first video is better anyway.
Burial- Ashtray Wasp
He has acknowledged he’s back on his formspring. He left a link to the James Pants sampled on the track. It is looking though as if he’s no longer part of OF. No celebrations or anything.
Dope track though. This kid still got skills.
WU LYF a few weeks ago was pretty awkward as well. Admittedly that was kinda there fault.
This article does kinda read like something off Hipster Runoff. Unfortunately Stereogum are just matching their stereotype.
I thought the Clams casino remix was horrid. If any remix should get LDR thumbs up, it has to be the Woodkid one.
