I thought “Problem” is a fine song, but Ariana’s voice is probably not the best match for it. She has a very agile voice that moves quick, but girl doesn’t possess any weight so it makes less of an impact for me. Imagine someone like Amerie is given this. Ariana’s best single is still “Baby I”, not this one.

That is a very good cover and it really doesn’t have any trace of the original whatsoever. But that opening bass sounds so much like one track by The xx. “Crystallized”?

Goddamn this is terrific. I hope both Annie and Katy can continue to produce fierce dance tracks like this

The new Annie song is absolutely smashing. Much better than Tube Stops and Lonely Hearts. Also, don’t forget “Safe With Me” by Sam Smith.

Take out “You wanted a hit”, add in “yeah (crass version)” and this will be a flawless top 10.

When I read the story behind “Helicopter”, my perception of the song has changed forever. I thought it was this dreamy, sort of romantic song, but it’s heartbreaking and sad.

Since “Latch” and “White Noise” are such absolute monsters, this breezy single left me underwhelmed and wanting for more. I guess the vocalist (Eliza) doesn’t compel me as much as Aluna or Sam Smith did.

April 19, 2013 on Disclosure – “You & Me” (Feat. Eliza Doolittle)

Anytime a friend of mine asks me “What should I listen to if I want to start this whole indie music thing?”, I’d tell them straight up Kaputt by Destroyer. It’s just a gorgeous, deceptively simple, impeccably made, and extremely ACCESSIBLE. And don’t even get me started on “Bay of Pigs” and how I feel every time those synth start.

Blue Ocean Floor is the best of the bunch. Don’t Hold The Wall comes in close second. I don’t get the whole D’Angelo comparison either.

The second part of Pusher Love Girl is so damn ridiculously fun and great. I am in love.

February 2, 2013 on My Bloody Valentine – “She Found Now”

Wait, I’m kind of confused because I thought EDM is a totally different genre from what Blawan, Joy Orbison & Disclosure are doing?

Claire, after reading your post, I had to go on Youtube and listen to Fantasy again. Such a great fun track.

My only quibble with the list is some artists like Kendrick & Frank Ocean have three tracks on it (yes, they are all brilliant no doubt), but I wish Pitchfork had made it two songs per artists, and then they can have more diversity (add Perfume Genius, The Walkmen, any track from Kindred, Evy Jane). Still a great Top 10 and I LOVE #1 choice.

December 8, 2012 on Download Katy B Danger EP (Feat. Jessie Ware, Diplo, & More)

The eligibility period has always been from the October of last year to the September of this year. So as long as your album is released in this time range and you/your label actually submit albums/songs, you will be considered for nominations.

I know lots of people will complain about why this/that album isn’t nominated. That may be because the label didn’t even submit the work in the first place.

Song of the Year goes to the song-writer, and Record will go to the performer, producer, and the engineer team.

If somehow Chris Brown beat Frank in that Best Urban Contemporary Album, I’ll be in an ocean of tears

Does anyone know whether those lists count EP or not? I refuse to believe Burial’s Kindred is simply forgotten that easily.
